I can't believe there are no comments yet. I'm a grandpa, and I think this blog was wonderful. This combines faith and love with an extraordinary amount of patience and appreciation. I'm going to send it to my daughter and granddaughter.

Precious moments. Those are the better times, things will get worse.

Such a freakin' awesome column! Liz - You will make an AMAZING Mama Liz someday!


We so often want what we don't have. It took until almost 36 for me to get married. I was lucky enough to have a baby at 37, but now at nearly 40, I struggled to get pregnant and when I finally did, I lost two baby boys. My heart is broken and my mind is questioning what is going on. I don't wish to go back to being single, even though my problems seem to have gotten harder since getting married. I do wish I could have married younger, but you're right, I should happy with my blessings while not giving up on my dreams.

Great message for all of us to think about. Not just future moms.

We are all in this together!

What a great adventure we are on!

Great post.
