Happy SS’19 Launch day, @wildbird! 🐦 I just purchased my first sling yesterday & I’m so excited to get it in the mail and start baby-wearing my little chickadee 🐥 she’s almost 20 lbs and my arms are killin’ me. This season was just soo good I couldn’t pick one sling. I NEED THEM ALL.
This dude is 3 months old! As tired as we are, he makes our hearts SO full. He finally lets me shower in peace. He still won’t take a pacifier. He finds Avery hilarious. He still hates car rides. He gets more vocal and animated as days go by. He may not let us sleep through the night but he has made us happier in every way possible. God knew we needed you in our lives, Aiden. Happy 3 months, my boy!

Give yourself permission to live a big life. Step into who you are meant to be. STOP PLAYING SMALL! You're meant for greater things. Yes, let's stop playing small! It does nothing for us or for others and by playing small aren't we also encouraging others to play small? If you're a #parent think about the #message your sending to your children. My #daughters have been sharing their goals and dreams with me, they have been painting a vision of what they want their lives to be like, and let me just say it's pretty freaking FABULOUS! It's my mission as a parent to SHOW my children that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! After all, they will do what I do more than what I tell them to do that's just a #fact! It's funny tho because I don't think I ever did picture myself as a mother when a was young (so much fear was planted in me but that's a post for another day 😉) and when I became a #mother it became my pride and joy my BIGGEST BLESSING! So how do I show my children that anything is possible? First things first I STOP PLAYING SMALL!!!!! Second I JUST GO FOR IT!!!! There's more than enough for everyone and it's time I claim my success, its time I release limiting beliefs and just go all in on me🥰 God, our source creator, gave me everything I need to go after everything I want as long as I don't love the things I want more than I love my creator! Understand that God is not forcing you to live this way. God wants more for you but it's up to you to take the journey, to stop playing the victim and to change your situation if you're so unhappy. Like the saying says, "If you don't like where you are, MOVE! You are not a tree." @manifeatationbabe my aha moment from #iammb2019#stopplayingsmall
This call to be a servant is what makes relationship so beneficial spiritually and so difficult personally. It’s a daily divide between our selfish flesh and the call to be like Christ in our everyday. _ I’m wrestling with keeping this mindset in the forefront of my mind. Choosing to deny my selfishness is hard work. _ When the kids desire to play an activity that messes the house I just cleaned. When my husband needs help with a task I don’t enjoy. When a client desires help that isn’t quite my joy and passion. When familial relationships are trying and I’d rather just avoid. _ I’m striving to look at these as opportunity rather than obligation. A moment in my day to be shaped to the image of Christ. An glimpse of that sacred space where Jesus washed His friend’s feet, even when He knew He would be betrayed and denied just hours later. _ “Do NOTHING from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of us look not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but EMPTIED HIMSELF, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” -Philippians 2:3-7 _ Lord, shape our hearts today to view all of life as an act of service. _ _ _ #soulscripts#lampandlight#butfirstjesus#livefullyalive#hopewriter#goodnewsfeed#givemejesus#lifegivingsquares#christfollower#womenoftheword#missionalmotherhood#shereadstruth#theartofslowliving#shareyourheart#inbeautyandchaos#nothingisordinary#liveauthentic#wellwateredwomen#deeplyrooted
Infertility Awareness Week! The Fertility Clinic. We were sitting in another waiting room, the heaviness of everything hitting us. Here we are. The place no one wants to be. . Before the Fertility Clinic, everything was done through my amazing gynecologist and Jamie’s GP. Then my doctor made the referral to the Fertility Clinic since there was nothing more she could do for us. I left my last appointment with her in tears. I called Jamie and could barely speak. The reality of our problems were starting to set in. . Then comes our first Fertility Clinic appointment. Words like “IVF” “Embryo Adoption” “Sperm Donation” “Thousands of dollars” “Exploratory Surgery”, hearing success rates, percentages, pros and cons just kept being spewed at us. Here we are, having conversations and making decisions that are most couples ‘worst case scenarios’ presented to us as our only options. . Our drive home was emotional and very long, and incredibly draining. We left with a lot of information to absorb and choices that needed to be made. Even though nothing that happened was what we wanted to hear, we now knew our only options. We had to let go of a vision and dream, mourn it, and figure out what that new dream would look like. 113/365

I’m in love with the colors and mood of this beautiful image by @mmphotohouse 💫 The light streaming on just a sliver of face complemented by the pensive reflection on the window is truly captivating, don’t you think?
