"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

I made it through the weekend at my parents house...

and they are none the wiser about this pregnancy. Over all, it was a really good weekend. My niece's birthday party was nice and, afterward, we took the kids to see a local production of The Wizard of Oz. The only down side to the weekend was my sister and her holier than thou attitude. She went through a long period in her life when she lost all her faith. When she refound it, she took it to an extreme. I swear that at times she thinks God speaks to her more than he did to Moses. I am usually able to bite my tongue and put up with her idiosyncrasies but I lost it when she jumped all over my mom. She had the gall (after a bit of a tiff) to tell my mom that she was "sorry that you don't have the close relationship to Him (God) that I do...maybe one day you'll find it." She said this to our mother, a woman who has been a faithful Christian allher life...a woman who has always been involved with the Sunday school and youth groups at her church...a woman who is president of the church's womens group and is on her church council. I snapped and responded and I now suspect I'm on my sister's shit list. Oh well...she'll get over it eventually.

Gotta love families.

Welcome back, sounds like you had some fun. Shame about your sister though.

How are you feeling now? Is it getting any easier?

(I've noticed, and I mean no disrespect, am just puzzled - that God talks more to Americans than to anyone else. As I said, puzzling.)
