2

Today is my last day at work for the year! I would just ask that you pray for this aspect of our preparation today... that loose ends would be tied up, that the details that need to be attended to would be done so with clarity and focus (as I am sure you can imagine that I am a bit distracted by other thoughts of Thursday), that the transition to my long-term sub taking over would go smoothly, and that I would be able to maintain a calm, and stress-free state while finishing up teaching today.

My little boy will be 2 on March 4. It is hard for me to believe that he is growing up so fast, so his approaching birthday is bittersweet for me. Each time I think about "March 4" and his birthday, it reminds me to pray for you. I pray for a safe delivery, health for you and Eliana, and I pray that in the midst of the roller coaster of emotions that you will be feeling, you will experience true JOY!

Continuing in prayer for you as you prepare to meet your baby girl...praying for the details of today. And, can I just tell you...it is beautiful to watch Him carry you, sweet friend.

Hi Stacy,
I found your blog right after Isaac was born, and have been quietly praying for you ever since. I have not commented before, but I have followed your story and you have been on my heart a lot this week. I am praying you can find the joy in the birth of your daughter, and comfort in the knowledge that because of Isaac, she will be an amazing little sister, until the day they meet in Heaven.

Praying for you, today and everyday.

Hello, I have been quietly following your blog for some time and as I have watched this day get closer for you I can't help but feel such excitement. 2 days from now will be the happiest day of your life, the kind of happy you deserve. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers as these last couple of days come to a close.

congrats on the last day. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Especially so that after that bell rings this afternoon, that you will be able to let it all go. The focus is now you, Spencer and baby Eliana.

ENJOY your last day, Stacy. What a special time. Your students are lucky to have seen you grow, spiritually, emotionally, and physically (!) through your pregnancies with both Eliana and Isaac.
Thinking of you so much today.

I'm praying especially that you are able to let go entirely of the weight of school. I know that, for me, having Colin meant that I had to give up "control" over every other aspect of my life. I just wasn't able to meet my own standards as a grad student, a wife, and a new mother. Knowing you as I do, I suspect that this struggle to accept imperfections may be ahead.

Unfortunately, I have no easy answers for how to overcome the Super Woman complex, except to keep praying for patience with yourself and for the willingness to accept your limitations. Oh, and ask for help from the rest of us!

Thinking of you as the final bell rings at school.

I was directed to this site from a dear dear friend of mine and I just cannot wait to read all about your sweet Isaac. This past September my daughter Miranda left us to join Jesus in heaven. This is all new to me and I am still working through my feelings and am hoping to meet other Christian women that can help me get through. I plan on reading more and more of your blog over the next days if thats okay. So far I admire lots about you so thank you!!!

Hi,
I found your blog a few months ago. You and your husband are such a strong couple. I wish you the best of luck on Thursday. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers:-)

I took maternity leave last December for the remainder of the year. My son, Aidyn, was born in January. Leaving my 3rd graders in the hands of someone else was very stressful at first, even with the excitement of meeting our son. I pray that your last day of work went smoothly and lift you and Spencer up as you draw closer to the hour of meeting Eliana.

Jen said...

So excited for you! And yes, totally makes sense that your head would be anywhere else BUT the classroom! I'll be praying for all to go smoothly- from one teacher to another :o)

Dear Stacy,

I have been following your blog for quite some time now. I am so happy for you and Spencer as you welcome your sweet little girl tomorrow. I have prayed for you and this day for you for so long now. I know you and Spencer will be wonderful parents to sweet Eliana. I pray that you have a stress free delivery and I know that Isaac will be looking down as his little sister enters this world. God bless you all. Best of luck to you. Robin from TN
