Friends, it’s been a busy week for me! I know I have been hinting at a few fun things I have planned for you all, and that reveal will come soon enough! My family has also been going through some big changes…exciting ones, but changes nonetheless. I promise to share everything with you over the next week or two…once I get my head back on straight!
For now, I am going to show you what has inspired me this week…a few of those lovely ladies that have kept me going. Once again, you’ll notice a theme here with the posts that I chose. I am never one to claim I am perfect or that I have it all together. I believe in being real and honest, and in that honesty…hopefully I can inspire other women like me. That is what these ladies have done for me this week…they are beautifully real and inspiring.
When You Don’t Have it All Together – Real Life With Babies
This was the exact post I needed to read this week. Sometimes I am guilty of thinking I have to have it all orchestrated perfectly, at least from the outside. But then I wake up and realize how crazy and unrealistic that is. That doesn’t help anyone, never mind my family. Taylor speaks to my heart in her post, because she admits to feeling the same way. She asks us to think about what it is we want our children to remember of us.
Are You Tired of Waiting on God? – 2HeartsDesire
Oh, this touched my heart! The last two years have been a waiting game for me. I won’t go into the personal details, but my faith has been tested many times over. I’ve been tired and weary and discouraged. Rebecca reminds us that waiting is part of the process. If we can find a way to be grateful in the middle of the waiting, it makes it bearable…as long as you don’t cut your bangs!
I Lose Battles on the Regular, But I Will Win the War – Annie’s Aprons
As a mom six times over now, this is a story I know very well! Parenting is hard work! Annie is a relatively new mom and has learned early on what I wish I had – sometimes we are going to lose those battles. Like Taylor said in her post, not every day is going to go as we plan. It is ok to lose a battle here and there, but our outlook needs to be on the war- the overall picture.
