Fat Tuesday

It's the day before
the day,
when we give it up.

And I'm pregnant.
Not sure what to give
as I'm still in those achy weeks
of eating whatever makes me feel better
even for a moment.

And so I've landed
on starting

an old habit
of READING each day.

Somewhere among the months,
it was lost
and I want to find it again.

To be that tree
planted by the waters
bearing fruit in its season.

  1. April, I didn't realize you were pregnant again - Congratulations! So exciting! I know it wasn't easy for you to get pregnant the first time around, and I'm so glad to hear you have another one on the way!
    P. S. Would you pray for me? I don't know if you remember, but we had troubles getting pregnant too, and it looks like the second one is going to be just as hard for us.

  2. I didnt realize you were pregnant either! Congrats! Will definitely be praying for you and for your daily reading.

  3. Hooray for the sweet to the achy.
    But enjoy as much as you can of course.

  4. Hmmmm. A paradox. Desiring to be planted by water bearing fruit, but sounding like your leaf is withered. I guess PG will do that. Love ya, dad
