WE ARE THE HEARTBEATS OF OUR HOME
ANGELA BLAIR ON MOTHERHOOD
Motherhood is the most challenging & most rewarding calling. We are the heartbeat of our homes. Here's to us. May we raise our little people to be good people. May we honor and respect the men who have pledged their lives to us. And may we do this thing with all the grace, intentionallity, & patience we need.
Nursing is one of the most beautiful and monumental things I have ever had the pleasure of doing. It absolutely sucks in the beginning. It does. It sucks. But then it shifts. Your nipples stop cracking. You quit "leaking" all the time. And all of a sudden it's this amazing gift. It's full of sacrifice and selflessness, yes. But it's also full of life and love and connection. I mean. if you stop and think about it, it's totally nuts. I grew this human and now I'm his literal lifeline. I'm so grateful for the time I had with my daughter and now this time with my son.
Esther is my energetic girl full of light + joy + purity. She could survive on blueberries & Minnie Mouse. Jonah is my laid back, happy-go-lucky, smiley, squishy kind of boy. Give him milk & snuggles and he's good to go. Both living, walking (well not yet), breathing pieces of my heart.
Then there's Thomas. My rock. The coffee-roastin' fearless leader of our tribe. An outside-the-box thinker. He can teach himself to do just about anything. He can fix (almost) everything. Esther has learned the phrase "daddy fix it" & uses it often... He loves our children and works wholeheartedly at everything he does.
I have, and always will, enjoyed capturing special moments throughout your life's journey together. To watch love grow deeper and stronger, to see your children thrive in the Lord; may you be blessed by these memories and reflect on them often as the years go by.
