I don't walk alone

I consider myself to be a spiritual person more than a religious person. I go to church, I almost always have. My spirituality includes a hefty dose of GOD but I find that there are many parts of my spirituality. When the wind blows I feel peace. When I sit by the ocean I remember there is so much bigger than I. When I look at my children I feel closer to God and faith then I ever could sitting in church.

My resolution this year was to stop trying to walk alone so much of the time. I think mothers are at such a risk of trying to do it all alone. We tackle so much in any given day that sometimes we feel isolated. We feel like we bear the weight of all of our family and we just endure. Our stress levels sometimes teeter on ridiculous and critical but we endure. We continue walking alone. We forget that faith and God and spirit can carry us on days when we want to fall down.

I have found that some days I just have to accept that I am not walking my path alone. I have my faith. I have my God. I have my spirit. If I didn't have those things the isolation would most definitely overwhelm me. Some days it does but most days I stay above water.


That doesn't mean it's easy. But it's easier with help!

LIVE IN THE MOMENT

Live in the moment
Yesterday has now just passed
The future yet to come

Thanks for gifts given
Precious moments to be held
Love given, received

When two people love
Separate souls dwell within,
Open to unite

Coming together
Yet allowing freedom too
To be who they are.

Interests combine
To share with much love and joy
Creating anew

Sometimes minds divide
Challenging and confronting
Ideas old and new

Honour and respect,
Ability to forgive
Hold the key to love

To give and receive
Creates balance in our lives
One need not be alone.

Life is so precious
We despite its ups and downs
Live in each moment.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
