If You Can, You Should

Being pregnant has really gotten in the way of my social life as of late. I know I know, just wait til the baby is actually here! However this past Tuesday, I was fortunate enough to meet up with old friends for dinner and I must say we waited far too long.

Not only did we eat great food, but it was so nice to be a part of adult conversation. While discussing the general "goodness" of people, my friend mentioned that her mom now carries on a saying that her grandmother once said - "If you can, you should!"
I haven't heard something that has resonated so strongly in quite some time and I too plan to carry on not only this statement, but way of life - even if I'm not family.

If you can, you should - sums up exactly how I try to raise Ella. I can't express how important it is to not only take care of your family and friends, but to think about those who are less fortunate and truly NEED the help. There is no better feeling!

On another note - please ignore my rather large belly (also seen here). I am currently 37 weeks, only 21 days to go and feeling larger than life. My belly hurts it's so tender! Yesterday I spent the entire day outside at Miller Park for a work outing and I'm pretty sure I was literally baking this child. There was sweat in places I didn't even know was possible. On a brighter note, today was the first day this month that it was under 87 degrees and I have thoroughly enjoyed the much needed relief!
