The older we get the more of my friends start families. Usually I get to watch them grow into it and become the amazing parents they are today. It is such a beautiful an inspiring process to me.
It is no secret that I want children. I have always wanted kids since I was six years old holding my newborn cousin. There have been times when I worried if I would be a good parent. There have been times I worried if this dream would ever happen at all. But yesterday it all seemed perfectly planned all along.
I'm so grateful to be able to watch my friends grow into parents. I'm so grateful to be a part of their lives and get to watch their children growing up into their own unique selves. I'm grateful to know my opportunity is coming and that I will have a whole team of friends there to help and guide me as I figure out motherhood. I'm grateful for my own mom that has been so supportive, creative, and loving as a parent and friend. I am truly blessed to witness this process and be a part of their lives.
Who are you grateful for today? What friends have you been blessed to see grow and change? What friends have been there for you as you go through your own shifts and changes?
May today bless you with good friends and lots of laughter. May you find gratitude in the simple pleasure of their company. Have a beautiful day and weekend!
