Marvelous storm we're having.

Some things in life are significant. They leave a mark on their surroundings, indelible evidence of their happening. Much like lightning can be seen on a tree trunk years after the strike, or ripples of a tossed stone make their way to the other edge of the pond. Most things, however, are insignificant – not much more than a blip on the radar. Even things that we think are so important at the time fade into the background eventually. Most events/decisions/occasions happen without too much fanfare or affect on the general circumstances of life. Days pass, time marches on, the world turns.

Then again, sometimes that lightning strikes. Lightning strikes don’t bring the whole world to a standstill, but they make everyone in close proximity stop in their tracks. That’s what the news of a pregnancy does. It doesn’t make the evening news, but it changes a handful of peoples’ lives forever.

sighhh.One more time.

You never know just how upon many lives this may impact, Melissa. If you did, it would be overwhelming! This event, so personal for you and Matthew (yeah, Duke, too!!), will ripple more than you know.

I'm very happy for you and hope your experience is as happy as mine were. What an enormous and exciting blessing!

BTW, I'm not a big snob on marriage, but I think it is essential for a child's good start that his/her parents have committed themselves to each other. I'm glad you and Matthew made that commitment for your baby's future. :)
