So, it's apparent to me now that not many people actually read this blog...haha. Of course there are the exceptions: my beautiful and forever best friend and loving sister-in-law are always leaving encouraging comments. But I just think it's funny because I spend quite a bit of time perusing through the blogs listed on the right side of the margin there and I wonder if they even give a fleeing thought about how I am doing. Eh, I know it's nothing personal. And to be honest, it is sort of a relief. I feel more confident saying personal things knowing that those others who are close to me probably know about it anyway. And no this is not a pity moment. If nothing else I love the fact that I accomplish something so satisfying as writing yet another post and adding pictures that mean the world to me. I love all my family, too, and I'm certain they have better things to do then read about Lindsey.
That being said, the days are constantly getting better. For anyone who hasn't heard through the grapevine or facebook God forgive I am 10 weeks pregnant. And a few weeks ago I was puking all over the place. I won't go into much detail since I have a pregnancy journal that serves that purpose but holy mackerol...I didn't think it would ever get better. I couldn't eat, sleep, sit, walk without getting sick. And now, I feel much stronger and fall is arriving- my favorite season :) I'm taking classes again and it's GREAT. I love them all and most will prepare me for the coming year as a mother, which works out just dandy. I am making new friends, expanding my comfort zone, and seeing more blessings come into view. And, as a lasting note, I feel very humbly blessed to be given the opportunity to bring a spirit of God into this world and be his/her mother. I'm scared to death, but I've never been more sure of anything.
A lot has already changed, but I feel that Heavenly Father is progressively molding me into the person I will become. The kinder, more patient, more cautious person. But this blog isn't about me. It says "The Dennett's" at the top because it was created for the sharing of both Jonathan's triumphs and mine.
I am really very proud of Jonathan. He is taking on some tough courses this semester but has nothing but a positive attitude about it. He has recently invested himself in the building of his own fly-rod. Someday I think he'd like to do this professionally, but that is time and money far from now. I'm so amazed at his knowledge of the intricacies in fly-fishing. It is truly an art and he is a master. He takes others out fishing and offers to teach many how to fly-fish. He is so kind and generous with his talent that it makes me want to share something I'm good at...though I may need to figure out just what that is. He also ties his own flies with all these complicated tools and things. It just blows me away.
But Jonathan isn't just great at the fishing stuff. He recently accepted the calling of Sports Coordinator for the Elder's Quorum and is really excited. He gets to put together different sports teams and coordinate inter-mural matches. He says it's just like what he'll be doing later in life- getting people together and having a good time. I love him for this. I love his enthusiasm and tenderness. I love that he doesn't get impatient with me when I think I suck at everything. Alongside of the gospel, he is truly the greatest blessing in my life.
