Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

The Couch

I have now gotten to the point in my pregnancy that sleeping in our bed just does not work. Every night I go to bed and toss and turn for about 20 minutes and realize I am not comfortable. Then I get up and go to my favorite place our trustworthy brown couch. We bought this couch jus tbefore I got pregnant with our 4th born so it has been with me through this stage now for 4 pregnancies. I don't know what it is about this wonderful piece of furniture but as soon as I lay down and snuggle up against the back I am lulled fast to sleep. Now I am sure you are wondering why don't you try that with your hubby. We have tried everything, using pillows wedged up behind me, laying back to back, having me go to bed first so I can get comfortable, believe me nothing works. I feel so bad for my husband but he completely understands and knows I will be back to our bed as soon as baby is here.

I just wonder what is going to happen the day we have to get rid of that special couch. I guess that will be the day that God will be telling me no more babies. Well at least that is what I hope. I am sure my couch has another 10 or 15 years left to be my companion during these last weeks of my pregnancies.

I am so glad that you can find comfort. I remember my pregnancies with my kido's and I could not find comfort in anything. Have a great day. Love Tanya

Thank God for the couch! Who knew, when you were looking for a couch, that it would serve as more than just a place to watch T.V.? Please don't ask me to go with you furniture shopping for your next couch. I'm sure it will be slightly embarassing as you lay on each one:)

Love ya!!!!

Ahh! Rest, sweet rest. I move to the couch any time I can't sleep. Something about the change in "scenery" just works for me.
Hope you're feeling well, all things considered.
