“Babe, it’s happening…this is actually happening”
This is what I said to my husband one day as we were going through a walk in the woods when I was nineteen weeks pregnant. It’s happening. Life, is happening.
I tend to be a worrier. I am prone to thinking too far ahead and often times, I don’t think ahead to the best possible scenario. Which can sometimes lead me to miss what is happening.
But on this day…in these woods…I stood still for a moment. On this day, I was able to stop and recognize that life was really happening. We were happy…we were healthy…we were having a baby.
We often feel like we need a reason to capture times in our life; marriage…babies…families. But sometimes, the best reason is just because life is happening…and that alone is worth holding onto.
This is Victoria and Ryan. Right here. Right now. At this place in their lives.
And for other reason than because it’s happening.
