Yesterday was my first speaking engagement combo "Baby Blessing" at my home church here in NJ. It was long and lovely.
I enjoyed speaking about India, showing off my pictures and answering lots of questions. But most of all I loved just standing around and talking with new and old friends. It was really my first chance to peacefully do that.
I was "blessed" with a beautiful bead bracelet that each of the women contributed to as well as scripture and prayers for my new (almost here) baby. And I was give a shower gift from a money tree that's already been mostly spent.
Well, I knew just what I wanted and needed and so I ordered up a Baby Sling today and some nursing items for after the baby is born. I have a some money left and I could use some nightgowns for the hospital and after so I think I'll actually go in person and get them. :)
