Seeing is Believing...or is it?

This week's gospel was about Thomas...or as we call him, Doubting Thomas.  He wasn't around when  Jesus appeared to the Apostles and he said that until he saw Jesus and put his finger in the nail marks that he wouldn't believe that Jesus was truly back.  It wasn't long before he was in front of Jesus saying, 'My Lord and my God!"  A true declaration of faith.  I have kind of felt like Thomas lately...I'm 16 weeks along in my pregnancy and am starting to feel a little more like myself (not completely but close).  It's a weird feeling because for about three and a half months I have felt so sick and tired that I think I started thinking that's what being pregnant felt I have to believe it even though I may not feel it.  It's hard to explain but I am not in the place where I necessarily look pregnant (just a little on the soft side) and the baby, though moving a lot I am told is too small for me to feel it.  So I just have to believe it's there. 
What a true mystery hidden inside of us!  Jesus told Thomas that blessed are the ones who do not see but still believe.  So, this little one inside of me is already helping me to believe without seeing!
