Good Evening Everyone,
I hope everyone is doing great on this wonderful Friday night. We had 80 degree weather here, so I am lovin' it!
I don't mean to get serious on everyone, especially for a Friday night, but I just wanted to take a moment to share a realization of mine with you...
As a lot of you know, becoming a mother changes your world. I'm sure a lot of you thought that becoming a spouse would change your world, too... but not like becoming a mother does. I have stretch marks that I appreciate (crazy, I know!) because the result of them is this beautiful little person. I have grey hairs and wrinkles that I'm growing fond of. I have extra skin that no matter how much I run, lift weights or do lunges will never leave my body unless I actually have it surgically removed. But, surprisingly that's not a big deal as it turns out. And below the physical aspects of how much my world has changed becoming a mother, there are the psychological changes as well. The instant overwhelming fear that was instilled into me the moment they let her lye on my chest will never go away. In fact, it's only getting stronger. I worry about days that won't come from 10-20 years from now as I lay in my bed at night. I build anxiety over her meeting the right guy, and I do mean the RIGHT guy! I stress more than I ever imagined. I don't think I'll ever manage to get enough sleep. I am more irritable than any husband should have to deal with. Personally, I feel like I'm a mess at least half of the time I'm awake....
But, I am the luckiest girl in the whole wide world. I have everything I have ever asked for and some how my life keeps getting better. The pride and joy I feel every day is something some people will only get to dream about. My husband is the most kindest supporting loving man I will ever know. And together we've created this incredible human being that I swear is a little slice of heaven... and now, I get to use my creative energy to be a part of brightening someone else's day! So THANK YOU to any of you and all of you who are supporting me and O. Rae Designs. We are having so much fun and I hope that we get to continue to do so for a long time to come.
Have a wonderful weekend!
