Blogging through the ups and downs of parenthood and trying to live a life full of
grace and gratitude
When life is busy, it’s hard to feel like we’re enough, like there’s enough time in the day, like we get enough done… And honestly, we aren’t.
I gave birth to E in the same hospital where my mom gave birth to me and where my grandma gave birth to her. And that’s such a sweet part of our story.
As parents, we all want items that are great for our kiddos. But what if those items were also great for the earth?
One of my biggest prayers for E is that she would always be surrounded. Surrounded by people who will walk with her, who will guide her, who will be present with her.
We don’t share pictures of our little one on social media. And in the age of iPhones and Instagram, that may seem a little odd.
To my dad, my husband, my brothers-in-law, and the dear friends who are doing the dad thing-- happy father's day.
In the past month, E has been to three new states! Between plane rides and road trips, I've found a couple must-have items for traveling with an infant.
And this mama, with stretch marks all up her belly and clothes that will probably never fit right again, found such beauty in those words.
I am no singer, ask my friends, my family, and especially my husband and they will confirm this truth. But does that stop me? You bet it doesn’t.
Someday I want to be able to share with them what this was like. So I've been writing it down-- all the details and feelings, every big moment and special occasion.
Weekends like this ground us and remind us who we are and who we strive to be. They’re the perfect breathe of air before the waves of busyness come crashing down.
I’m sitting here watching big kids in the field and on the playground and I’m realizing my little baby will be all grown up in the blink of an eye.
“All this for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.” -- 2 Corinthians 4:15
