Wandering Mind

I am sitting at my computer at 1:30 in the morning and I should be sleeping. Marny, my little naughty kitty, is beside me, purring away. And every so often she tries to climb up onto my computer. This makes typing a bit difficult. The point is, though, that I should be sleeping.

I recently started my study to become a FertilityCare Practitioner. I feel very blessed to be able to be a part of many women and family’s lives in this intimate manner! I know how much G-Man and I love the FertilityCare system. As a woman I find it so empowering.  I am excited to share this with others. And it fits so well with my other two areas of study, Theology of the Body and Nutrition. This does mean however that I am a very busy person.

This fact usually keeps my mind from wandering. Not today for some reason. I think that this is because since I have been back G-Man and I have really been revelling in our marital bond, so to speak. And, as I was discussing with the hubby tonight, I feel the desire for his children the most when the bond is strong. Or maybe, this desire is just because I am near my Peak day. Either way, G-Man and I fell into dangerous habits tonight. We were laying around discussing great children’s names. We came up with some good ones. He always surprising me with what he likes and doesn’t like. BUT this discussion did lead to a great conclusion.

One of my favourite names is Isreal. I think that it would be a great name. Of course every friend I have ever had thinks I am crazy. G-Man is no exception. He has said many times that he would NEVER name a child that. BUT, at the end of our discussion on names tonight, he finally gave in. He said, “Well, ok, you could name our child that on two conditions:”

1) That we had 4 children already

2) That at least ONE of these children are biological.

So basically he is saying “Well, you are feeling down and I don’t want to make it worse so here are the almost impossible, “hand-of-God” situations where this dream of yours could be fulfilled.” Despite this, I thought it was very cute. And I agreed!

So the point of this very random post… If God gives us lots of MIRACLE children, our 5th child if the child is a boy or the first boy after 4 children will be named ISREAL! I am not any closer to have a child, but I feel I got closer to having a child named Isreal. So that is something.

Good night!


  1. I love names and their meanings! It is so fascinating! DM's wedding gift to me was a book of names and their meanings. ...Sad almost five years later and we still have not had the chance to use the book yet :(

    I hope you get lots of kids so you can get an Israel!

  2. CONGRATS on studying to become a FCP!!!!! You rock!
    It is SO hard to compromise on names. But you did it!
    Prayers coming your way for that 5th child. :-) (((hugs))) Anything IS POSSIBLE with God!

  3. haha after reading this Sean said something like "I don't think Israel is such a bad name." I'm pretty sure we were one of the ones giving you a hard time about it in years past, but I guess we've become more open-minded since then. Anyway, we would welcome little Israel to your big family with open arms!
