my Wish.

(back when we both gambled. You know, we are from tahoe. ha ha)

When I found out that I was pregnant (at 5am one morning), I woke up Dave and told him. I wasn't exactly excited. I had finally given up after five years of hoping, and moved on. I lost weight, started teaching seminary, and signed up for every service project I ever wanted to do. But most importantly, I mentally moved on. I wasn't sad, I was excited! I could finally do all these things that I always wanted to but couldn't, because I wasn't at that stage of life yet. I was ready for a new season of life. I accepted that I was too old, and that God's answer was no. I was finally OK with that, happy, and at peace. Oh, the irony.


One of the first things that I said to Dave after I told him was, "we can give the baby to kelly!" While, of course, I wouldn't really give up my baby to anyone, my sister Kelly was one of the first things to come to my mind. WHY am I pregnant and my sister Kelly isn't? It isn't right! I'm old, and ready to move on, remember? If I could have made a deal with Heavenly Father right than (or right now) I would have. If I could give up this precious gift and give it to Kelly instead, I would. KEll, my heart is breaking for you tonight. The only thing that brings me comfort is I KNOW you WILL have more children. I KNOW, and you know it too. So yes, let's cry tonight, but be happy tomorrow because we have that faith. i love you!!

and ps- just so you know for sure- i am not one tiny bit sad/ jealous about your baby. i'm excited and happy and totally know everything happens to who and when for a reason from someone wise wise wise.

and i felt better one minute after crying because i imagined how pretty and romantic i must've looked with the tears streaming. ha

I have been thinking about Kelly too, with a prayer in my heart, because I know how you feel, and how Kelly feels too.
