My Dear Friend in Motherhood,
I know that every baby is special. Beautifully created and unique in every way, but some of us have a special bond because of that unique gene our child was given before we even knew they were in our womb. Our babies need special care and attention sometimes just to even survive to the next day. We pray over them daily, cry when no one is watching (and sometimes when they are), celebrate over the seemingly small, hug them for that extra second, and realize their smile is unlike any other. Mine is about to turn two. We still have a lot of uncharted territory ahead of us and we wonder what it will bring. And in this new perspective of life that comes with a “special” baby, I have an aching in my heart to write a song that will touch peoples lives and gives them a glimpse at who our babies are.
I have so many ideas going through my head, but I haven’t found IT yet. And as I was thinking about it all, I realized that I haven’t gone through it all…we still have so much unknown ahead of us. BUT, I have an amazing circle of mamas who have amazing stories to tell! Will you share with me?!? Will you take me on your personal journey that you are walking? What do you struggle with? What blessings do you count? What have you learned from your special child? What new perspectives do you have? Anything!
But also if your child is old enough that you can see things through their eyes as you’ve watched them grow, or how they have effected other people with their life, I’d love that side of your story too!!
If you feel you can share by posting in the comment section below, please do! If not, send me a private message. I can’t wait to get to know each of you better!!
If you haven’t gotten Naomi’s story, so far, here’s a link to her blog posts while we were in the fire! Remember they are in order newest to oldest, so keep scrolling back! I will try to put out a new one next month as she is turning TWO!!
Sending Hugs! (I can’t help it!!)
