Oh, baby showers! The overjoyed grandmothers! The tiny socks! The stunned mommy-to-be who realizes that this thing is happening, no fooling!
During my 4 fabulous baby showers, it dawned on me that my mouth has been making claims, which my brain never really believed.
My mouth says: “Greg and I will really need to make time to be alone together once this baby comes. It won’t be easy!”
My brain thinks: “Greg!! I dig that guy! I am going to spend sooo much alone time with him this summer!”
My mouth says: “Once this baby comes, everything is going to change…”
My brain thinks: “Wait, what? We’re having a baby?”
In all seriousness, these past few months have been rough and while there are many things that I am still grieving, I am nevertheless overwhelmed by the kindness and support I’ve received. From Nashville to Columbus, from my school family to my church family I am humbled by everyone’s prayers and encouragement. Anyone reading this who has kept Simeon in their thoughts these past few months, please know this: I am in awe of you and I hope I can someday show myself to be the kind of friend to you, that you have all been to me.
