You know when something makes your heart throb? When you know it is for real? When you know it is part of your very core?

When it’s undeniable? When you know, just know…. you were created to be this, love this, do this?


For myself, this is a number of things.

To mention a few….creating beauty, loving fresh air and rainy days, sharing daily life with friends, enjoying good food =)…

And being a mother. My mother made such an impact on who I am today. She played a huge role in my life. I would love to call her today and share the news. But I think she knows.

Late this fall I will be mother of three. =)

Being a mother is at the core of who I am. It makes me feel complete, I think.

Loving being pregnant? Nah, not especially. =) Excited to meet “new baby”? Absolutely!


  1. Congratulations, may the Lord bless you with a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Praying all will go well.
