Here We Go!

We are leaving for the hospital in a few minutes.

I have been having light contractions since 6 o'clock this morning, and they are finally picking up. They have been about five minutes apart all day, but they were not that painful. Todd, my mom, the boys and I even went for an hour long walk before lunch to try and move things along. I think it helped a bit, but the contractions have just recently gotten painful and closer together. So, we figured it was time to hit the road.

Say a little prayer, and I'll update you when I can. :)

Since according to the time registering on my computer to the time you posted this some 16 hours have passed, I am hoping you finally are now able to hold your little girl and all is well in your section of the world this morning. Will be waiting -as patiently as is possible about these things -to read all about your daughter's arrival.
Peace.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
