Constant Change

Constant Change.

It sounds like an oxymoron but it perfectly explains where I'm at lately.

When it feels like you can't count on anything, you can absolutely count on change.

My body is changing.  This baby bump is growing every day.  My favorite outfits from last week may or may not still fit this week.  I guess that's what happens when you are 9, 10 or 11 weeks pregnant. 

Yeah.  That keeps changing too.  The baby is measuring small but the calendar says that I should be 11 weeks.  I'm going with 11 weeks for a few reasons.  Mostly, I just like the way it sounds.  It also makes me feel better because I look like I am 11 weeks along.  This could change when I go back to the doctor on Monday for another ultrasound. 

Constant Change.

It's the middle of November.  My Christmas tree is already up.  Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK!!!  It seems like I just wrote this post last week.  I just blinked and six weeks passed.  Time never stops...

I think there is some comfort in that, too.  Mountains and valleys only last for a season. 

Constant Change.

I have withdrawn from Facebook and Twitter considerably over the last eight weeks.  Social networking has taken a backseat to my real life.  I am just so tired when I get home from work that I can barely put dinner on the table before I hit the bed.

Who am I kidding?  I rarely put dinner on the table.  My husband had a peanut butter sandwich for dinner last night.  Bless his heart...

Don't even get me started on photography.  I still haven't finished editing the wedding pictures that I took three weeks ago.  Even so, God seems to be blessing it!  I have a session scheduled for this Saturday and two sessions scheduled the following Saturday.  I've even been approached about shooting an all-day event next summer!! 

I couldn't even spell aperture this time last year...much less understand the concept of it.  I never knew that taking pictures would be my passion or a potential career.

Constant Change.

I'm thankful for change.  If it weren't for the rain, I wouldn't appreciate the sun so much.

(I realize that I am a lot behind on my 25 days of Thanksgiving Challenge... so be prepared for some serious catch-up posts coming up soon!!)
