encouraging one another.

 I found myself in need of encouragement since Amelia's joined our family. She is so precious and seriously the sweetest baby you've ever seen. But even the sweetest baby wakes throughout the night for feeding, has dirty diapers, gets running noses from her siblings loving on her and needs attention. Three kids take a lot of work. 
I found myself tired and worn out, but afraid to admit it. I thought that if I said it was hard then somehow I was failing. I watched other mom's that looked like they had it all together and compared myself to them. Wondering why I couldn't do as much as they could.
I'm thankful for my mom. She's come along side me and encouraged me during this time. She takes the kids so I can nap and makes grocery runs for me. She helps me so much more though, by praying for me, sharing verses and sermons, and reminding me of why I'm doing this. And she always tells me I'm doing a better job than I really am:) 

It's shown me how important it is to continually encourage one another. I'm hoping that hearing from these other mom's this week was just that...and encouragement in your parenting. We're all in this thing together.

  When something really speaks to me I like sharing it with others hoping it will bless them as well. I recently listened to this talk and LOVED it. I don't know if you guys ever check out the sermons or books I recommend, but I promise this is worth your time!

I am excited to hang out because I feel really alone in this season of life. Cammie is easy peasy but miles is HARD. Very hard. I am going to listen to this sermon at naps. Thanks for sharing Jess. And thanks for your text yesterday. :) xo
