Grace… Eventually
Read more

I stole this title from Anne Lamott’s book of the same name. Given my anononymity and her success and graciousness, I don’t think she’d mind. Plus, I recently bought a copy, so maybe that makes it better. I’m emerging slowly into the land of the living. I keep reminding myself that I am blessed to be pregnant.
