I can't believe I have carried this baby to term.  It just seems so crazy to me.  We have wanted to start a family for so so long and now, it's only a matter of weeks at the most, until we meet our sweet baby that we have longed for, for what seemed like forever.  So as the past 37 weeks have flown by, it feels as if the next few days/maybe weeks, are dragging by in eager anticipation of meeting this little girl.  I found this poem somewhere, and it's just the perfect reminder that this amazing blessing from God will come when the timing is perfect.
Dear Baby, here beneath my heart,
I thought that you might come today;
The timing seemed just right.
But the stars are out
And the moon is high
And sheepishly I wonder why
I try to arrange the plans
Of God.
For now I know
You will not come
Until the One who holds eternity
Rustles your soft cocoon
And whispers in tones that I will not hear,
“It’s time, precious gift.”
“Now it’s time.”
