All I'm Dreaming Of

 "Precious one,
So small,
So sweet
Dancing in
on angel feet
Straight from Heaven's
brightest star
What a miracle
you are!"

Last night I was up until one in the morning reading a book a colleague gave me.The character, Cannie, is seven and a half months pregnant in the story and due to complications has to deliver her baby (a girl) early. I sobbed so much fearing for the fictional little baby, really hoping the author had a heart and let her pull through. I made myself put the book down at a neutral point and go to bed but not before thinking about all the families who endure this very real life battle. I can't imagine how stressful and difficult it would be to go through this. The thought alone breaks my heart. There are so many things I want for my little one, things someone might find unnecessary. For her to be smart, happy, ambitious, patient and of course, beautiful. To posses qualities I feel would make for a better life. Her being physically and mentally strong and capable is the utmost important element though. It's amazing and a true blessing to have a healthy, full term baby and I wouldn't ever take that for granted. I'm at 24 weeks and she's getting stronger everyday. As much as I want to meet her I am happy with where she is for now. I feel so fortunate to have made it this far.

On a less emotional note, I hope everyone has a great weekend! I don't have much planned other than work and the usual routine but let's see if I can do something or get something done.
