No Hiding It

Hey, Mamas. I'm about to get really real with you: I have been battling depression. That's why I have been so distant. I'm not intentionally being distant and I don't want to stop writing the blog...I just can't get the words out right now. Or at least haven't been able to. Maybe I will start to feel inspired again soon, I don't know. I really don't know much about anything, except what has always been true will always be true: God is good and He loves us so much. It's really strange to feel so numb and down, and yet have hope and faith that everything really is going to work out alright in the end. But I do believe it. I'm not even claiming to be depressed, I'm just openly admitting that I am fighting it. And fighting it as hard as I can. Depression is no stranger to mothers, I know. Probably you have dealt with it a time or two yourself, postpartum or otherwise. Personally, I have battled it off and on since the age of 9

Take the Time

 Hey Mamas. I’m sorry for the month full of silence. I’m not really sure why it happened. I just haven’t had the drive to write and am still trying to work it out.  I will say that I have been praying for you all. And praying for God to give me the right words to say to you. And praying that He would send you inspiration in other ways if not through me. I just have not felt very inspiring lately. When I find out why, I’ll try to let you know, if I think it will be helpful to you. I will share one thing that has been on my mind lately, though: taking the time. I don’t know about you but I feel like this summer is just flying bye. We’ve been super busy and doing a lot of fun things, but I really feel the need to slow down a bit and savor where we are right now. We got sick last week and, though it’s always sad to see little ones not feeling well, I will say it was kind of nice to just be stuck at home together.  Time moves so quickly. Kids grow so fast. We never know how long we have wit
