This Saturday was exactly what I needed to lift my spirits and make it through this last week of bedrest. We were able as a family to venture to Thanksgiving Point to go to the Tulip Festival. How was this possible, you ask? VOILA....
Paul was so very thoughtful and arranged for us to rent a golf cart, and it was a blast!! The kids loved riding on it, and I didn't feel like I was cheating TOO badly, since I sat in the back with my feet up. We had such a wonderful afternoon.
For the first time in weeks I actually felt like a mommy, a part of the family. This is what I love to do, what I live for. Doing little things like this with my family always reminds me how blessed we are. I am so grateful for them, and for the little boy we will soon be blessed with. I feel like I am in such a good place right now, a week from today I will either have a beautiful new baby boy, or at least be off bedrest! I cannot wait to hold little Britton in my arms, meet the sweet little spirit that I feel like I already know, and go back to being the kind of mom I love to be, but hopefully much better!
