Feeding Geese and Soul

I've had so many posts and crafts I've been meaning to get to, but nature and pregnancy have had other plans for me. However, this weekend Bear and I escaped to feed the ducks along the river. It is a favorite winter past time of ours, but problems with this pregnancy have been preventing us from getting out. It came to a point, bed rest or no, I just had to get out. We took it slow and easy. Usually there are hundreds if not thousands of ducks here, but this year we only found a small flock of about 8 Canadian Geese. They were happy for the bread. We were happy for the stillness and the sound of the river flowing around the ice. It's such a peaceful activity and it helped us take our mind off of the looming threat that we may have to go too another state to have our baby. Things have not been going well. There is a specialist who can help us but he is in another state. It's all set up. If things don't improve soon we will be making a road trip; but for now we are thankful for the small things, sharing a quiet walk along the river, the sound of running water trickling under ice, and for a handful of geese. Wherever you are, have a blessed day and be well.


  1. I hope your feeling better. Im pregnant with my 4th child. Ive been resting lot too.

  2. Thank you Anne, The encouragement helps right now :)I don't know how you find the time to rest with 3 other children but congrats to you. You are amazing. This will likely be our one and only child. I don't know if either of us could take the stress of every other day wondering what will go wrong next. Far to many tests and visits, and we still don't know if my heart will give out during delivery :( Clearly my arms were made to hold a child, but my body was not.

  3. I don't know you at all but I've been following your blog for awhile.... it is such a wonderful place...It seems odd to be so excited for people you don't know expecting a child, but I am truly excited for you and your husband. I will say a prayer for you and your family.... and I look forward to seeing pictures someday soon of many smiling faces.... May God bless the three of you on this difficult journey....Praying for the best of outcomes and your health and the health of the baby.
