On my Facebook page, I post a variety of things.  They are all things I find interesting and want to share with my friends.  I’ve come to believe that you can learn a lot about others by reading what they post.

Some people look on the bright side and post motivational or inspirational quotes or stories. I have to admit I’m drawn to those kind of people and their posts. I find them uplifting and energizing.  There are also people who like to complain and rant. It must make them feel better or they wouldn’t do it. I have to admit there is only so much of that I can take.

I thought it might be fun to go back over my last twenty posts and see what kind of things caught my eye and maybe get a feel for how “I” might come across on social media.

Here are my last 20 posts:

4/19- a picture of wild turkeys

4/18-a picture of a 1929 Packard Roadster

In a side-note–Emma Cynthia, who kept us waiting, is now 2 weeks old, has gained over a pound and grown two inches!!

I’d love to hear about your posts.  What do you usually post about?  If we not friends on Facebook, be sure and send me a friend request so we can connect there, too!!

Shortly after my daughter got married, she and her husband decided they wanted to start a family.  They were young and healthy so like many other couples they assume it wouldn’t take long for a baby to be on the way.

For the next four years the only babies they had were their boys: “Duncan” and “Henry.”

Wendy and Tyler and dogs

The doctors couldn’t find anything wrong, so after trying many different medical options, they decided to look into adoption.  Of course she began to hear all the stories about people who began investigating adoption and ended up pregnant. Of course, she didn’t believe them.  Then she ended up pregnant.

On Monday, she gave birth to their third daughter, Emma Cynthia.   None of the girls were born with the aid of any fertility enhancing drugs or procedures.

Emma- newborn  Emma and sisters

These sweet girls were clearly worth the wait.

Has there ever been something in your life that you’d given up on and then it came through?  Or have you had to wait for something and the waiting only made it sweeter?

Everyone who comments will be entered into a drawing to win one of my books. International friends, Kindle version only.

I can’t wait to hear your stories…and check back on Sunday to see if you’re a winner!

waiting quote

Life is filled with opportunities to learn patience. Growing up you wait to be old enough to drive.  Then you wait for the time you’ll be on your own and out of school. You wait for the love of your life. You wait until you have enough money to buy a car, a house, to start a family.

When the waiting is up and you have that car, that house, that family, other dreams that take their place.

As a writer, you wait to hear from an agent or an editor. You wait for reviews, for sales figures.  By the time one book comes out, you’ve started on another.

I’m pretty good about waiting , it doesn’t stress me out. Probably because I’m usually already working toward some other goal, or something else I desire. Or maybe it’s because I enjoy my life just the way it is so anything else is gravy.

There is, of course, one exception.  Waiting on a baby, I’ve learned,  is a different kind of waiting.baby girl

Our daughters’s due date for baby girl #3 (Emma) was yesterday.   So far this pregnancy has been uneventful for her.  Still, I worry.  I want it to be over so I know that my daughter and granddaughter made it through the labor and delivery unscathed.  I want it to be over so Emma’s two not-so-big sisters (almost 3 and almost 5) can meet the newest member of their family and begin to adjust.  I want the wait to be over so I can hold baby Emma in my arms.

Have you ever had to wait for something that you didn’t want to wait for? Did your wait have a happy ending?

Comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win a copy of Christmas in Good Hope  (which, btw is now on sale through the end of the month on Kindle for $1.99)  Or, if you already have it, your choice from one of my other books.

Check back on Sunday to see if you’re a winner….and keep your fingers crossed the baby comes soon.  The wait is killing me.!!!
