This morning, December 3, 2008 at 3:34 AM, I gave birth… again. Hubby was napping in the bed beside me as I pushed through to transition, but when the baby cried for the first time he was right there embracing this new life with me. I don’t think I have ever been in labor so long for anything! Oh, the PAINS of BIRTH! And then the afterbirth and the other unspeakable things! I am just glad that that part is over and I can enjoy this new bundle of joy! I don’t even mind the new stretch marks!

Of course, we want to make sure the baby is healthy, so we are still having her checked out. Yes, I said HER!!! I finally got my GIRL!!! And she is absolutely GORGEOUS! She looks just like her momma and she even has my complexion. When you see her you will know she is mine, ’cause she sounds and acts just like me, too!

I know I haven’t been very sociable lately. Ladies, you know how it can get towards the end. Guys that have lived with a pregnant woman know, too. Thank you for being so patient with me. We wanted to wait to have a shower for her until after she is she’s presentable, clothed properly and ready to greet the world. Gene and I will let you know when that is… prolly some time in the Spring.

Now, for those of you who don’t have a clue what I am talking about because sleep my deprivation is too intense for you to decode my ramblings…I’M IZ FINISHED WRITING MY BOOK MANUSCRIPT! I’M IZ DUN DESIGNIN’ MY COVER! I’M IZ DUN PUTTIN’ ALL’A IT IN MY TEXT DESIGN PROGRAM! I DUN ADDED MY GRAPHICS, TRANSFERRED IT TO PDF and DUN MADE ME A BOOK!!!

Technically, I could publish it on line as an ebook now, but she is too special to just be online, so we are planning to have a book release shing ding or something, but right now we are just excited she is here. Plus, we need it to edited a few more times. I have been writing since August, but with one-third of my year consumed with getting this done I am ready for a change!

Gene is going through this book with a fine toothed comb and is on his forth read of this 200 page book… and I thought it would be a 50 page booklet at most. (Can YOU believe that I had so much to say?) Each time he reads it as if it is the first time and each time becomes more passionate about the EXCELLENCE that he expects from this project. He has been my greatest encourager and has continually admonished me to write for the people that are to be our audience; that our message about ‘relationships with God, ourselves and others’ will benefit.

Thank you for your encouragement and support! I appreciate you!

If ya been prayin’ for me, please keep it up! If you haven’t, please do… I NEED IT!!!!!
