I come to you heavy laden, exhausted with a long laundry list, goals and ambitions to add, AND career & faith commitments.... this girl is TIRED!
As I sit and think of my long list and full life, I can't help but think of all of the people in my life... specifically all of the strong women in my life!
My faith in Christ is what keeps me sane, my husband keeps me grounded with his logical stubborn self..trust me I need to be kept near planet earth! (love you baby!!) My parents are always there when I need them, for babysitting or surprise birthday visits.. (read that story here)
BUT THE WOMEN...
the women in my life come from a place of specific understanding, emotional connections and out right love and support. They often understand because they have gone through what I have, or will go through it and learn right along with me. The little things like fashion, humor, vacations, life stories.. those are all things my girls share with me.
Recently I hit nesting stage in my pregnancy, I'll be 30 weeks on Sunday, and I freaked out... like had a MOMENT! I found myself texting some of my closest girlfriends this mass txt of 911 emergency! HA... Im so dramatic sometimes.. yes, me, really.
But every single one just said YES, I will be there for you... and for a pregnant lady, with a hard working husband, (like 80 hours a week) moving bedrooms and storage around a three level home.. I was in tears. Again, here is the drama, except that's mostly pregnancy crying. I was in tears and in love with all my friends and family that are really supporting me.
