Anticipation

The anticipation began a few weeks ago, when Jill had her IVF transfer. We anticipated the news of a BFP! (For those of you who are not familiar with the IVF world - that is a big fat positive.) When it came, we rejoiced and cried and rejoiced and cried many times over. Well, Thursday morning I get to go with Jill and Alex to the first ultrasound. I am filled once more with anticipation. Will there be one? two? She has been very nauseous and I think, does this mean there are two? How exciting! (We will be thrilled with one.) Whether one or two - once we know - the anticipation for whether we are expecting boy or girl - or boys or girls - or boys and girls, LOL! You see what I mean? Anticipation. A wonderful thing! I think this is what God wants from us when we go to Him in prayer: "Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him..." Psalms 37:7 Oh, to simply take our requests to God and then rest, waiting with anticipation to see what He will do!

Ah! I'm a tad bit jealous. I've been thinking all week that I know I have know place there and that this is Jill & Alex's moment, but I so want to go the ultrasound with them. I can't wait to hear how many neices and/or nephews I will be meeting this year.
