was a phone call from a good friend.
This is a friend who I traveled across the world with to Italy for two weeks last year (I think our hubby's tagged along too ;). She most likely learned more about me then she really wanted to know during this time, but she still loves me anyways. We made this "last hurrah" trip before both of us jumped into motherhood. They got preggo a month after we got back from our trip, and had their baby girl Eden last July. Here I am am, a year later, amidst the same emotions she went through.
She encouraged me to live in the moment instead of looking ahead at what life was or could be. She went through the same "grieving" process that I've been experiencing recently. Lately, she catches herself thinking ahead of when life should get easier, but she often forgets about the special moments she has now with Eden. I can so relate. I am too busy looking ahead or panicking about what I will be losing, instead of enjoying this CA-RAZY miracle of pregnancy. I don't want to spend my 9 months focused on negative thoughts, but rather on the positive aspects that life holds for me.
Thank you my dear friend, for showing me that it's okay to understand the reality of motherhood, but for also reminding me to not worry about tomorrow and live for today.
Another HUGE thank you is due to my readers and friends for your kinds words, messages and comments. I love reading them and appreciate each of you!
Of course these emotions will most likely linger on and relapse, but I can rest assured that I have friends and family that love me and who constantly encourage me to be a better person. I am so blessed!
