29w6d: Unanswered Prayers Turn Into Life's Greatest Gift

Just the other night a hometown football game
my wife and i ran into my old high school flame
and as i introduced them the past came back to me
and i couldn't help but think of the way things used to be
She was the one that i'd wanted for all times
and each night i'd spend prayin' that god would make her mine
and if he'd only grant me this wish i wished back then
i'd never ask for anything again
Chorus:
sometimes i thank god for unanswered prayers
remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
that just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
some of god's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers
She wasn't quite the angel that i remembered in my dreams
and i could tell that time had changed me
inn her eyes too it seemed
we tried to talk about the old days
there wasn't much we could recall
i guess the lord knows what he's doin' after all
And as she walked away and i looked at my wife
and then and there i thankedd the good lord
for the gifts in my life
Chorus
Some of god's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
some of god's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

What a powerful song by Garth Brooks.

Baby is outta control moving. I recorded some footage today as baby is moving and is quite visible through the skin now.

Do feet grow when you are expecting? Wife claims she now wears 10.5 shoes from her usual 9. I'm not buying it. Bet it's another tactic to just buy more shoes.

En route back from LA tonight, I conducted a survey on whether to circumcise or not should it be a boy. Resounding feedback was yes, while I tend to not be a believer in it. We'll see what wife and I decide, jury is still out.

Physically wife is freaked out about her veins protruding and the warp speed growth of her hair and nails. Maybe I too should start taking prenatal vitamins to get my hair back! Hmmmmm....
