I think this is a lesson ive had to learn over and over since becoming a mother. To be honest I didn’t think it would be an area i’d have trouble in.
I bawled my eyes out before church last night. I started thinking about my baby boy turning 1 in just a few weeks. I walked into the bathroom to make sure my makeup wasn’t smeared. When I looked in the mirror. I started laughing at myself- I started thinking “WHO ARE YOU?”
For as long as I can remember the following has been my favorite bedtime story.
I went to the thrift store the other day and for the first time in a longggg time-I shopped for MYSELF😎 I have a boutique so usually when I go I’m focused on getting stuff for the boutique. So it was so fun to shop for myself. I found this dress for $1-and a whole bunch of other stuff😱 It’s super comfy! I love the dress buttt im thinking i might want to repair it a little. I don’t know…we’ll see.
Ryan and I were talking the other day how we’d be content if Luke was the only child God ever decided to give us. It’s true!!! I mean obviously if we have other kids..it’ll be different in a good way!:) i had a dream the other night that we were having another kid and I woke up crying cause I kept thinking “Nooo! I still have so much I want to do just us 3!”haha
When I started this new blog, one of the main desires I had was to bring more attention to Christ and what He is doing in my life and in the lives of others. I wanted to bring more attention to His name. One way he showed me I could do that was by sharing other peoples stories of His hand in their lives. So I began to ask God to bring to mind people that I could have write for my blog that HE KNOWS their stories would be an encouragement to others who read them.
When I found out I was pregnant I began to wonder so many things. Like “WHO IS HE GOING TO BE LIKE?” In our relationship I’m the outgoing one. I like to be crazy, meet new people, smile at everyone and talk, talk, talk. Ryan is super friendly but he’s alot more normal than me:) I often get told “you are crazy, Abie!” I am starting to think that side of me was definitely passed down to Luke. He is seriously so outgoing.
Two weeks ago our family took a mini vacation to Davao City. It’s about three hours from where we live. Shorter depending on who drives. 🙂 It was nice to get away for a few days and just relax. Luke really enjoyed it.
