When that phrase comes to mind I think life. New life. 9 months of wonder. Making plans and God creating and molding. 9 months of development for a new tiny being. Excitement, joy, and so very anxious to hold this new person in your arms.
But the phrase 9 months today, means 9 months without the physical presence of a mother, daughter, sister, wife, and friend. 9 months without Jenny.
But this past 9 months HAS been about wonder, development, and molding. Anxious to feel and new found joys. A new life. Mine.
Just one without Jenny.
Well maybe not without, just temporarily postponed.
