These last few weeks of pregnancy have been really rough on me. Between just the pure discomfort I’ve felt to the guilt I feel about not being able to be as active with Huff the Tot as I used to be, I’ve just felt incredibly down.
Last week, a dear friend sent me a text:
“FYI, I sent you a book through Amazon.
It’ll be there Monday!”
I was excited! She didn’t tell me what the book was. So Monday, when I opened the package, I saw this:
I felt a peace come over me. I couldn’t really put my finger on it, but I KNEW I needed to read this book. (Now I know that it was such a God thing).
As I read the Introduction, I started sobbing. This woman was me. Even though she had three kids and I only one (with one on the way) I completely understood her. It was as though she looked inside my mind and heart and wrote down my deepest secrets. One line stuck with me:
I’ve thought that A LOT these past few weeks. Between the constant Braxton Hicks and the false alarms, there are days I dread hearing the alarm or my daughter calling over the monitor, “Mommy! I awake!” There are days I want to call in sick, but Moms don’t have that luxury.
Even though I’ve only read a few chapters of this book, my spirit has been renewed and I’m feeling like there is hope when I couldn’t even see the possibility of it before.
If you’re a young momma that needs to feel like she’s not alone in her struggles or an older momma that wants to help out the new generation of mothers, I would definitely read this book!
You can get it here!
