I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you mama friends of mine who left a comment on my last blog post, on my Facebook page, or sent me a private message with ENCOURAGEMENT and helpful advice. I just love it when women can encourage other women – that’s what we’re supposed to do! I think there’s so much judging that goes on amongst us, especially with motherhood (but heck, with life in general), and it’s so refreshing to have dozens of women send notes that say YOU CAN DO THIS.
You girls rock. We’re all on the same team.
So thank you. If you were here I’d give you a hug (which is saying a lot because I’m not a hugger). So instead, just trust that I appreciate you, and I know I will be referring back to some of your handy tips in a few weeks when Baby Girl is here and our little family is figuring this whole thing out for ourselves.
I have this verse posted next to my computer at work, and I think it’s perfect for this, as well as motherhood in general. I can’t tell you how excited I am, but I also feel like I’m standing on the edge of a high diving board, afraid to let go of the rails and just JUMP. I know I’ll be fine when I do, but I also don’t know what to expect on the way down.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” –John 14:27
Here goes nothing…
