BlogFest December 3: Where did you visit this year?
Fear was the first thing that came to my mind. I did visit fear in a real way.
My pregnancy was filled with fear. Doctor’s appointments upon doctor’s appointments, becoming a case study for my ob/gyn was all reason for fear. For much of my pregnancy I really believed that I would not have a baby at end but rather a funeral.
I also visited places like Denver, CO, Holland, MI and Waldo, OH. I visited many doctors, lots of people who wanted to meet Benjamin, and lots of non-profits around Chicago. I visited with young adults who are seriously discerning their vocation and with middle schoolers who think about pizza more than they think about God. I visited my compassionate heart, my ability to love in brand new ways, and my ability to be shaken to the core and scared.
The last three years I have traveled all over – this year, not so much…but visiting within myself has pretty amazing!
