There are times as a new mom this year that it has felt lonely. There are times motherhood felt overwhelming. And there were many times that I felt I did not recognize myself through the exhaustion and changes. I'm sure moving forward there will still be occasions where I question if the decisions I make in raising my daughter are right. But this weekend I was reminded that through it all there is a whole team of people behind me. A big, beautiful, loving and supportive team that is here for me and my family.
I'm so grateful to be reminded of my blessings. I'm grateful for all the wonderful family and friends that came out to celebrate. I'm grateful to know that we have even more family and friends in our support system that could not make this event. I'm so grateful to feel so truly blessed and supported. I'm grateful for all the wonderful presents my daughter received. (Yes, including the drums and ball pit.) But I'm even more grateful for the wonderful Presence she has in these people being a part of her life.
What blessings are you grateful for this morning? Who is your support system. Who makes you feel so blessed?
May today remind us of all our blessings. May we cherish the people who give their presence to our lives. Have a beautiful day!
