Sometimes, you find yourself asking, "Who me?" Am I supposed to be able to handle this? Am I going to be able to overcome this next hurdle? How did I get myself into this? Am I ready? Will I mess up? Will I fail?

And you feel, not just a chicken little, but a chicken lot.

Being pregnant has been like that for me. And as I draw closer to the conclusion of this nine month odessey, I see my old life closing and a new, wide-open door to heaven open. But to get through and stay through that door will take grace every morning. I am utterly chicken. And I feel so grateful for the chance to be chicken, and to make it through anyways.

Photo is from our honeymoon in Alaska. It's not often you find a wall that makes a point. :)

Great shot! I love it. I've been a parent for most of my adult life. I'm on the other side of that process. I don't really remember what I did before I was parent.

You sound like you're more than ready for it all.

And when you do find a wall like that, it is not just a photo opportunity, it is a photo must!

Seeing as you are an amazing, awesome friend, I'm 100% positive you will be an amazing, awesome mom. You have lots of people nearby to support you, and tons of shoulders to cry on if necessary.

Anyone who has kids and doesn't feel at least a little chicken while contemplating it is a fool.
That is a great photo!
