Psychic Revelations

My sister-in-law, Becky, visited a psychic recently. I don't necessarily believe in psychics, palm readers and the like, but I definitely think it would be entertaining to try it sometime. What I like even more, though, is when someone else tries it and learns something about me!

Apparently, when the psychic "saw" Becky's brother (my husband) and his wife (me), she saw a little girl soul tapping me on the shoulder.

Now I'm sure there could be many ways to interpret such a revelation. But since Dave and I have been talking about maybe trying to get pregnant in the next couple of months, the only interpretation I seem to be able to see is that there is a baby girl ready to join our family, just waiting for us to go off the pill (and apparently getting impatient -- we'll have to teach her when she gets here that tapping can sometimes be impolite!).

But like I said, I don't put my faith in these people who can "see the future" -- rather, I put my faith in God's plan for my life. However, it is really fun to think about having a little girl relatively soon -- maybe in as short as 10 months! (A note to my parents and anyone else who has been asking every time you see us: this is NOT, I repeat NOT, an announcement that we are pregnant.) We already have a name picked out. I have a couple of gender-neutral baby outfits that my grandmother gave to both me and my cousin when we were just teenagers. And the other day I was book shopping and found a baby food cookbook and a bedtime story book on sale -- so I bought them with the justification that we will hopefully need them someday. I guess now we just need to buy some pregnancy/parenting books, have a glass of wine, and get to it! :-)

I am glad to see you've decided to post again. Not that you have a lot of time right now...
I am with you that I don't really believe in that stuff, more of God's plan for us, but who knows maybe she is right! But for the time being, make sure you have boy and girl names picked out until it is for sure:) Not too sure if we'll be seeing that Batman movie before our trip, but hopefully we'll see you before we go.

Wow! I've always wanted to take a stab at the psychic reading, but I guess I've just been chicken. I think I'm scared of someone actually have real insight into my life and the things that I think are "unknown".

I hope what she saw was in some way a true revelation of your future to come.

Hey! Happy Belated Birthday! I've been ill for the past two weeks, so I didn't forget, I simply didn't have the energy to find a great e-card to send.

I hope all is well and you had a great birthday!

Miss you!!

Yay! Finally a new post! And what a great post it is! It is definitely time to get off the pill and have a little baby!

BTW, I am officially the worst friend ever! I completely missed your birthday! Happy Belated Birthday girl! You know I love you!
