I only started thinking clearly about two months after Jack was born. Ever since, it’s been a slow process back to normalcy, or whatever normalcy is anymore. One thing that a baby forces you to do is to stop being a perfectionist…because time! And you know what? I know I’m most productive when there isn’t endless time, and we all tend to make room for what we find important, so here goes a commitment to blogging twice a month. Let’s see if I can do this. Butcheq would be so proud.
But this post is really about how much love I’ve felt in the past four months. The world can feel like a pretty bleak place a lot of the time, so what a breath of fresh air to see another side of humanity. I have been absolutely stunned by the ways people have loved my little family through this season: quality time, meals, words of encouragement, gifts, help on all of the fronts; the list goes on and on! I’ve felt some very high highs and some very low lows during this season, and I absolutely could not have come out to where I am now without such an amazing community of people and supportive family. How do people do this without support?! I am in awe. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Life is so much better when we share it with other people; the good and the bad.
