Message for January 4, 2012

Today we had our doctors’ appointments – one with the perinatologist and the other with our regular OB.  We are doing well and on track for your delivery in less than 30 days.  At this point, we will see a doctor every week until I deliver.  I’m excited to see your face; but, afraid of the pain and unknown challenges.

I hope you approach life fearlessly.  Never be afraid to be who you are.  Never be afraid to chase your dreams, no matter how crazy they may seem to others.  If I am lucky enough to teach you this life lesson, I will feel like I did my job as your mom.  Fear has been my biggest struggle in life.  I don’t want you to inherit this from me.

Always live your life without fear.  I will always be there to catch you if you fall.  Always.
