SOMETIMES A GIRL IS SINKING...
I had the world by a string- only I was wishing I could fly away.
Time hop has a way of helping me see life simpler.
It was a world of triumphs and tragedies ago.
Pictures say a thousand words.
That was the best happy face I had back then.
Looking back now I see the weight of the world pushing on my shoulders.
I was drowning in a kiddie pool.
It was before I gave myself permission to be fully and totally a complete mess.
New foster mom.
I had already failed one kid placement...at least that was how I saw it in my own mind.
I felt like I was living a lie.
I was drinking too much and doing pretty much anything to avoid my real life.
I was in such a dark place...and come to think of it- so was Eric.
Like two crusted up rowboats passing in the night.
They can make us or break us.
That season almost took me out... but by His grace-it didn’t.
It made me stronger long term only in the midst of it I wanted to run like hell.
People are going thru stuff.
It’s good to remember.
The rude checker...
The seemingly snobby Mom...
Road rage driving beside us...
People have stuff...
Now it’s easy for me to give grace and judge less mostly because I have walked in some messed up shoes over time.
So if you need it- Here is permission to be.
Big Love ❤️,
NEW MOMS NEED US....MOTHERGOOD
It's a miracle, a joy, total bliss, and it's freaking hard.
Welcome to our hood- Motherhood.
I look like a deer in the headlights in this picture. I was in so far over my head and still trying to keep it together. It was not our first baby but our fifth. So, first babies are scary. Fifth babies are scary. And everything in between.
There's too much pressure on the moms.
Juggling a new baby.
Lack of sleep.
Trying to look like we have it all together when it couldn't be more opposite.
Changing the diapers and boiling the bottles..(Although the bottle boiling will be short lived.)
Moms who have given birth are trying to heal physically and adoptive moms are just hoping to bond with baby.
It's a pressure cooker.
All of the cliché things are said. Beautiful baby comments are made. And we walk away.
But we're missing it. Truth talk. Support. No judgement love. They need us. Remember how it felt in the beginning?
I barely did, until I came in contact with a struggling new mom this week. It opened my eyes to how much they need us to come alongside them. Tell them they are doing just fine. Maybe even share the tough parts of our story so they see they are not alone.
It will all even out and life will find a new groove, and until then we promise NOT to tell them how "you should cherish these moments because they go so fast."
It means getting out of our comfort zones. Maybe even meeting new people. It might be in the parking lot at Target, at church, or the gym.
Maybe it turns into a Starbucks coffee while we soothe their colic baby so they can have a moment to speak freely.
Whatever it looks like. It is a win.
I'm in. Ready and willing to show some love.
Like a mom gang- coming in hot to help out new mommas.
Let's do this.
