Happy 3rd Week, Ms. Truly Grace


I will hurry up and write this blog post before our baby turns 1…month…old…
And yet… I must keep pausing as I type because we are nursing… me, Truly and my laptop sit parallel as I reminisce over the past few weeks and rub her furry head of hair….
Breastfeeding…sleepless nights…. Dr. Suess Days at school…. all rolling into one…

Lessons Learned
We had a dream…a wish… a request of the universe…
…may we have a little baby that we can bring into this world and grow our family with abundant love and joy…
Then, it was all up to Him…it’s always been up to Him but we prayed for a healthy baby and then…
let…it…go…
They say that you have to be willing to receive your wishes, beyond your wildest dreams…
That you can ask for what you want, but be willing to accept anything that aligns with your goals and your happiness… and be willing to accept something better…
expect something better
Expect…
Miracles…
Truly, and the way I feel about her… is definitely way better than I had ever thought possible…
We must remember that all things in life can be like having a baby…. we have our ideas, but God is in control and it is up to us to expect the miracles…and the blessings that are our own birth right…
Not everything is perfect…not everything is always great…
However, if we cultivate an attitude of gratitude, and surrender our ideas unto Him…. we will be provided for…
We are not always given what we want, but we just may not know what that is…. so let’s decide on one thing: that we want to be happy….that we want to be blessed…
We do not know how we are going to get there, but that is where faith comes in.
I have faith that I will get some sleep one day… that my toddler will be fully potty-trained… that my 1st grader will remember not to yell at her brother…
You really do have to take the beautiful moments with the terrifyingly frustrated ones because the birth of a babe reminds you that nothing lasts forever…even when it may feel like it will.
Crying in church
Anyone else cry in church?
We went to an honorary mass for Sean’s grandparents, and it was my first time at mass in awhile, and it was Truly’s first mass…
Her eyes lit up as she listened to the booming voices that sang and spoke, the music loud, yet soft and soothing…
I thought to myself, She thinks she’s back in Heaven…
Enter tears….
This baby just got here from Heaven and we must always remember just how important and true that is…
She blesses us…all babies bless us…
They are not only a blessing…but they literally bless us… with their peace and love…and they know Him much better than we do….they know no other way… all they know is peace and love…
We can learn a lot from our babies…and our children….we all grow and we all get older and the cycles continue….
May we all feel the peace and love that we know exists because we see it in our babies…
