Time and sleep are these two rare commodities in my life these days, so I will keep this brief. Motherhood has been so full of awe and wonder for me. Tiny lives that you want to protect with everything you have are also reliant on you taking good care of yourself. Feelings surface that you didn't know were planted deep in your soul, and unlike younger counterparts, you fail to see the struggles along this journey as negative and purposeless. You feel like the education-deprived child who longed for years to attend school, and because of the lack of opportunity, willingly and without complaint accepts the challenges along with the joys.

That being said, some may say that it's only a honeymoon period right now, but then it is easy to judge when one does not see the big picture. We struggle, we strive, and we accept it all because the tiny lives we created need us to do this, to be there for them.

    I've been taking a long break from blogging to recover from some hard events on the home front and was excited to see some happy news today when I checked back in. I hope you are enjoying every minute of the sleepless bliss that motherhood brings. It goes too fast!
