Howdy duty neighbors!
How’s it hangin’?
I’m sorry that I’ve left y’all for a week, but I’ve been a bit occupied with the most wondrous, miraculous, beautiful thing that has ever happened in my life- I gave birth to a perfect bundle of seven pounds, eleven ounces of pure preciousness.
On Sunday, March 19th at 3:55 p.m., Lee Michael was brought into the world without complication, trauma, or much difficulty.
This past week, his first week in the world, has been exhilarating. A bit surreal, a bit, okay a lot, exhausting, but so joyous thanks to the Lord and those third trimester workouts.
While I’m going to have to take a maternity leave, or I’m calling it more of a maternity moment, from the blog for a few more days or possibly week (one day at a time with a newborn), I want y’all to know how appreciative I am of YOU! The endless prayers, advice, support, encouragement, gifts and love y’all have been sending me these past few months. You will never fully know what a difference it has made for me.
As soon as I can, I will come back with loads of recipes, workouts, and advice on how I survived pregnancy, labor and delivery, and my first few weeks of motherhood.
In the meantime, know that I am so thankful for each and every one of you all.
Thank you for the prayers before, during, and after my labor and delivery. Thanks to the goodness and faithfulness of God, this whole fourth trimester journey (yeah, I’d already argue it doesn’t end at delivery) has, so far, been gracious. Absolutely gracious.
Be well, make time for you and your health, stay movin’ (yes, I have already started walking through my neighborhood in small spurts), and find the joyous blessings God places before you each and every day.
Today I am thankful for tiny feet that remind me of bear cub paws, Fisher Price’s Rock’n’Play, and selfless grandparents that fly hundreds of miles to love on and serve my son and me.
Take a moment to reflect on 3 things you are grateful for right now. No matter how minute or momentous, we all can start our week with an attitude of gratitude.
See y'all soon!
