It has been a while since I have left a few links that I love. To be honest, I have been a little blogged out this week. Maybe it is the spring weather we were blessed with - busy outside - harder to take a moment at the computer. Maybe it is that I have almost hit 100 followers and that is very exciting and a little overwhelming. Or maybe it is just the flow of blogging - there are times when there are days I could post 3 times and times when I am too busy living life....and I guess that is what I have been trying to focus on this week - Living life. Enjoying the weather. Being present with my boys. Going to bed early. And trying to feel 100% again. Who knows...but today here are a few links I have come across the last few days that have stayed with me. Enjoy!
This one titled: Somebody Wants What You Have is powerful! It reminds me to approach some of the little frustrations with a different outlook.
Go Ahead, Let Motherhood Redefine You This post has a number of great points. Being a mother is the biggest challenge I will have and it is also the experience that will teach me most about who I am. This post touches on why this is true.
Meghan writes a blog about being a mom to her three kids. EVERY. POST. has me nodding my head - meaning I get it - I have been there - that is my life. I have no idea where she lives - but I do believe that her post on Groceries this solidified the thought that she would be a great "real life" friend if we were neighbors, shopping at the same Target, disheveled - but thrilled to have accomplished the days errands with one, two, or for her - three children in tow. Her post was me - almost exactly on Monday morning!
Nine Words women use was posted on a new blog I came across. I don't think Ali wrote this - from the way she posted it. It reminds me of one of those forward emails that goes around. I will have to check with her. But I thought it was HILARIOUS - and SO TRUE! And I am so glad she posted it. It gave me a chuckle!
And if you have 5 minutes today - READ THIS POST from the blog Enjoying the Small Things - it is such an amazing birth story. One that will sit with you. One that will stay with you. One that you will want others to read.
Have a great Friday friends. It is cold here again. Boo! But I also kind of like the way the seasons change here in Minnesota. A few beautiful days and then they are ripped from our little hands for a few days....but I know they will gently be handed back to us again - and soon enough they will be here to stay.
