Clint has really been working hard. He's got so much going on right now, and on top of all that, a super-hormonal, very pregnant, often weepy wife at home. He has been wonderful and so sweet. And he is giving me a lot of grace right now, and he tries to help out where he can. I am thankful for my husband of almost ten years. He is a blessing to me!
Today, I am 38 weeks pregnant. I feel like I am 40 weeks. Must be because this is my fifth. Not sure... But I am still praying that this baby will come early, not late, like my last two babies. I am not feeling a whole lot of grace left on me to keep going. My body is super sore and it is hard to get around and take care of the house and the kiddos. I am really being stretched in my faith and trust in the Lord. I know it's good for me, but that doesn't mean it's easy. I will try extra hard today to have a good attitude and thank God in everything. I want to please Him. I want to be faithful. I want to finish strong. It's going to have to be a mind over matter thing, I think. I must not be ruled by my emotions! I must focus on God and press on! (can you tell I am trying to give myself a pep talk?! :) )
