Two nights before Katherine was born, I wept. I sat in bed and just cried.
I will always remember the conversation that Spencer and I had. It was the last night just the two of us would spend in our home. The next day family would arrive and the following day we would have a child.
Life would never be the same.
I knew it was coming. I had almost ten months to prepare. But no preparation takes away that top of roller coaster feeling. Preparing doesn’t make that final moment before the leap any easier to handle.
Thursday, that horrible monster, the Migraine, came lurking around the corner and quickly pounced. I’m helpless when it comes. Nothing can interfere with its awful stare. Nothing cures its awful bite. I’ve dealt with it for about ten years and it’s never fun.
The Migraine is especially hard to deal with now. I have a little eleven week old that needs me. I just can’t function when it comes.
So when I quickly realized I couldn’t do the errands I had planned, I let the people know that I was supposed to meet up with. And one dear friend offered to watch Katherine for several hours. I knew I needed to take her up on it. I needed help.
Sarah loves Jesus and her family and is passionate about addressing the urgent spiritual and physical needs around the world. She is the wife of Spencer and mama of Katherine and Claire, and they live in Nashville, TN. She runs a photography business with her husband and writes in order to offer encouragement and invite others to choose grace, joy, and gratitude in the adventure and the mundane. She loves traveling and reading; she will choose unsweet tea over sweet and bootcut jeans over skinny; and she is all sorts of awkward with small talk but thrives with deep conversations.
