Yesterday I felt this overwhelming feeling of loneliness during yoga. It felt really great and scary. Until the yoga instructor said. “You are loved.” Immediately I felt a huge wave of my anxiety lift and smiled because I knew I felt God near. Pretty cool moment. Pretty cool God.
I recently had somebody ask when I knew I loved Dean. And the only thing that kept replaying in my head was 🎶 “love is a many splendid thing.” I can’t remember an exact moment but I know it’s like this; it’s a bunch of little moments that added up all together and just blew me away. Love you madly Dean.
This morning I drank three cups of coffee and mustered up the courage to take both girls to urgent care alone. Nora completely destroyed the office while I was on the phone with insurance trying to figure out if we were covered. Wren cried the entire time while Nora went around and met every single person there. As I got off the phone I just cried to the lady in the office, she’s throwing tissues at me as Nora is hugging someone’s daughter and Wren is still crying. So I got the girls to the car and we all just sat there and cried for a good five minutes. . But they both napped. And an angel from church dropped off little mermaid. So I’m dancing, singing and pouring another cup of coffee. . And don’t worry mama who had a really hard day too, I see you and I hear you. And I’m throwing tissues at you because we’ve got this. 🤟🏻
"Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see." - Linus // It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. . This @kindredandkin winnie dress is the most perfect dress I think I’ve ever owned. 🤟🏻
Just a quiet calm scene that my morning is anything but. However, Nora did sleep through the night without any night terrors. (🙌🏻) And then both girls woke up with wicked head colds and we are on tantrum 237483 but I’m chugging coffee and praying we make it to a successful nap time. These are the days. These are the days. . Also shoutout to the heroes who sent advice, love and made me feel special last night. 🤟🏻
She’s tested every single last nerve today. I’m fighting hard not to feel like a failure. I know she doesn’t feel good. I know she’s tired. But how do you convince a two year old that sleep really is magic and that nightmares aren’t real?
