Life, Lessons and Love

Meh, random post about life and such...
Currently reading Northanger Abbey...while it sometimes seems as if it will drag on and never get to the point, somehow it draws you in and you become a part of their lives, particularly our 'heroin'. I want to go to the Lower Rooms and the Pump-room and wander the streets of Bath. The chapters are short and endearing, situation by situation, you are pulled through each meeting. I rather like it...part 2 of this edition I checked out is, 'Persuasion', hopefully that will be as enveloping...
The bus and train are proving to be rather efficient, granted the bus does not stall the meeting of the train, but another is along 15 minutes later anyhow. Katherine is adapting quite well to it all, she has always been good about it, but when she found out we were selling our vehicles, she was not really sure what to think. I am glad to have it available to us, not everyone has such opportunity, I am grateful for ours.
There were 3 babies and a big brother of one of those babies 'churched' today...*sighs*...I LOVE when babies are churched, so sweet, reminds me of when Katherine was churched all those years ago...2 of the babies were so tiny, you'd think they were barely out of the womb, oh how my mommy heart yearns to love and hold one. Fr Boris' big hands accentuate how tiny those little peanuts are. There is that little part of me that has been fighting the urge to want a baby...no point in wanting what is not in our hands anyway, but still, can't help but imagine what it would be like with another baby in the house. I know if is to be, it would be perfect regardless of our wants and hopes...*sighs*...I have reconciled myself to having twins, a boy and a girl. I know, I am crazy, but it could happen and I am ready for it, well, that is the idea anyway =) Only time will tell I suppose...pray for me...
We have been finding the focus, time and energy to dig into our house...it was suppose to happen a couple weeks ago, but between a cold and life, things did not work out as we had 'planned' ;o) Lotta good that does, planning. Things are coming along and we will see how we do. Jay has been more than supportive and helpful around here, sometimes I just like when they go out and about for a bit while I dive in.
I will have to say that in our situation we have had quite a bit of help and love from people in our lives, particularly from our church family. We have had more than our share it seems and we feel so loved. I am sure there are others more deserving of all this sort of help and it leads me to think of how, although things are tight these days with the rest unknown, what little we do have is tons more than a lot of people have and makes me want to give more than I ever did when we were in excess. What a blessing to feel this way, I think. I am unworthy of these blessings and yet, God sees fit for us to have them. Infinite love and mercy...eternal struggles to the betterment, let's hope I do not pass up my chances =)
