Reading: Right now I am reading a few books. Call me crazy. But this is how I normally am. One book I just started is called “Celebration of Discipline” by Richard J. Foster. It is all about getting into the habit of spiritual discipline. Something that I need right now. My husband got this book when he was attending a men’s group back in Canada and he really encouraged me to start reading it.  
I have also started reading the Outlander series by Diane Gabaldon. I own the first three books but left them in Canada. For my last birthday, my husband bought me a set of them on my Kobo. I will be rereading the first three books and making my way to unknown territory with the others. I love reading. And he characters are so funny.
I am also doing a few devotionals from the series called She Reads Truth. I would recommend looking up their website. So delightful.  

Feeling Thankful: for the fact that I can feel thankful. After reading (for the first time) Ann Voskamp’s book One Thousand Gifts, I am learning more and more the importance of feeling thankful. For everything. And not only for the good things in my life, but for EVERYTHING - truly realizing that everything is in His plan. That our human perspective needs to change. Ann mentions that “If the heights of our joy are measured by the depths of our gratitude, and gratitude is but a way of seeing, a spiritual perspective of smallness might offer a vital way of seeing especially conducive to gratitude.” Something to think about. 

Watching: We just finished watching Dexter. The season finale (spoiler alert) was the most depressing episode I have ever seen. Honestly. And there was a moment when I thought it was over, but nope it just continued being depressing. Sigh. Right now we are not watching any other TV series, however, we did watch V for Vendetta on November 5th. Of course. Such a good movie. 

Anticipating: We’ve been waiting, anticipating, her arrival. ;) Like seriously.

Listening To: Joshua Radin. He calms my soul.

Working On: my writing! Eep. I am so far behind. The last few days have been extremely stressful so I have not written anything since the first. I am hoping that things will get calmer and then I can get back into the flow of my story. I don’t want to get too far behind. The end of November is coming! 

Loving: my little love bug. I know how, that's obvious. But it is true. Even when she stabs my ribcage with her beautiful little feet, I cannot help but smile. Her time is coming so soon. I cannot wait to meet this little precious babe. 

Eating: breakfast! We found this cute little coffee-shop not far from our house that serves cheap breakfast, delicious coffee and amazing wifi speeds. I only wish we found this place sooner.  

Feeling: Happy. That is another thing I am so thankful for. Being able to say that I am happy. I just keep pinching myself. Is this really what life is like? And then there are the days where I wonder: Is this really the stuff I have to “put up” with? I know there will be harder days, but for right now, in this moment, I am so happy and just cannot believe how lucky I am. To have an amazing husband who spoils me rotten. A little girl who will be coming into my world very shortly. AND oh how I love her already. Friends all over the world who are encouraging me and blessing me. My mother and sister who talk to me daily. My father and brother who I miss with all my heart. I am so happy. And I am thankful for that.
