He is good.

I am bursting with news, but the kids want to go swimming and I must oblige.

How far you have taken me, Lord. You are so good... I see it every day, I have seen it, even through the pain, but sometimes I just didn't want to admit it.

I got two separate pregnancy announcements yesterday from dear, dear friends. And I genuinely feel excited and so thrilled for my friends. And you know what's weird? There wasn't the "sad for me" that usually accompanies such announcements.

I have been down a bitter and sad road...and there are bitter and sad days to come, I'm sure. But I can see the clouds parting.

I remember my friend telling me that there came a point when pregnancy announcements didn't bother her anymore...when she didn't even have a desire to be pregnant. She told me this over a churro and Coke at Costco and I didn't believe her.

I do now.

Wonderful news and that you have reached this point. Amazing how much about life you can learn with a churro and coke.

I don't get upset over pregnancy stuff anymore, really. And now that I am done with having kids, I can say with confidence that I don't have any desire to go back to that place in my life ever again.

Now I want a churro.

P.S. When are you going to bring the kids swimming with us?
