Good Fortune

Dear Avery,

    It has been a couple of days since I have written to you.  Overall, it has been a good weekend spent with family and friends.  You are moving like crazy and and your heartbeat has been strong every day.  I'm still feeling very hopeful and fortunate to have you with me right now.  I had a rough moment this morning in church.  I heard a baby crying in the back and I couldn't help but think that I might never get to hear you cry like that.  I teared up for a little while, but I quickly recovered. I have to keep reminding myself that today you are healthy.  Today you are full of life, and today you are with me.  I can't dwell on the unknown aspects of the future or I will miss out on the time that I am blessed with right now.  Sometimes that's easier said than done, but I am trying my hardest to stay positive.
     Your dad and I went and picked out a Christmas tree this morning.  I love the smell of a real Christmas tree in the house!  I put the tree skirt around it and wrapped all of the presents that I already have so it would look official.  We still need to add lights and ornaments for it to be complete, but it already looks awesome. I cleaned and did some laundry today to get prepared for the coming week. Your dad worked in the basement with Uncle Pat and Uncle Doug.  They are done with all that they can do, so we are ready to call in the dry wall guy.  The end is in sight for a cozy basement where you can play!  Have I mentioned that I am sooooo excited for your Mimi to get here on Wednesday?  I love when she is able to come visit. 
    Tonight, Daddy and I went to PF Changs for dinner.  It was very yummy as always (especially the flourless chocolate torte--you're welcome for that!)  My fortune was so fitting for all that we have been dealing with lately.  "You will soon emerge victorious from the maze you've been traveling in."  I believe that we will.  Hopefully, that was a sign from God that you are going to be alright.  Keep on fighting little girl and remember that you are loved by many.
                                                                   Hugs and kisses,
