Being a mom is hard.
It's the best and most hard thing I have ever done.
Asher James is everything perfect to me & yet he knows how to drain me like no other. He isn't the longest sleeper so I wake up a lot during the night, and I sleep on towels because my milk has not yet regulated and feeding him is like a mini shower for both of us. & Then all my clothes either 1) don't fit anymore because of my chest or 2) covered in breast milk. And with all that said... I say to my husband being a mom is hard.
Sure. That sounds legit.
And then I get a bit of a reality check.
Yesterday I went over to my blog friend (friend I met through blogging) Mindy's blog:
I remembered the other day reading on her Facebook page that they were finding out if their little one was a boy or girl & then not hearing anything about it. And then yesterday I had a bit of time to catch up on reading blogs and read her post called:
Her and her husband went in to find out the sex of their baby (which they did a little precious boy)... but also found out that he is not developing as he should be. You can read more about the details over on her blog & I would encourage you to do so. Their hearts in this situation are incredible & I don't use that word lightly. They are choosing to see the good in this situation & follow God in it completely.
I was torn apart when I read her post.
I just couldn't get it out of my head. Every time Asher James woke up last night I thought of Mindy and her sweet family, and prayed for them. Yes, Asher James screamed, and milk sprayed everywhere and I thought ... being a mom is hard, but I know this is not the hard part.
The hard part is the being brave even when you're scared. It's that feeling of wishing you could trade places with your child just so you can go through the painful parts. & I've only experienced a little ounce of this when Asher had to go back to the hospital for his Jaundice and continually get his blood taken for a few weeks.
So I realized today venting is okay, but complaining is not...
Because I have nothing to really complain about.
Many of you have been amazing and prayed for me during different times so I'm asking to please pray for Mindy, her husband Daniel & their precious son. I believe in miracles & the healing powers of Christ. I also believe in God having a purpose in everything. His will...will be done, and in that there is peace.
& I want to say thank you Mindy for being so open, honest, and inspiring.
You're an amazing Momma.
You really are.
