No, I’m not pregnant yet. I say yet, because I am under full conviction that God WILL provide a baby for us when He’s ready. I will not live in fear, discouragement, or disbelief in His promises. He led me to this dream and He’ll bring me through.
I’m trying to get this blog more evenly distributed between homemaking and infertility posts so stay with me while I get there. Next Monday, I will start ‘Momma Heart Mondays’ where another blogger/ttc sister helps me by either answering my interview questions or writing their story out. So either sign up to get an email when I have a new post or follow me on Instagram here and I’ll tell you when to check it out.
So, I’ve been reading ‘Grace, Not Perfection’ by Emily Ley and wow! This girl spent some time figuring things out! I love it so far, 2 pages in and I was sobbing. Anyway, good book review cut short- she inspired me to spend some time today doing things that can rejuvenate and make today and day’s ahead better.
I am currently in a hotel. Yep, confined to a hotel. Ovulation days call for desperate measures. I always feel weird sharing this specific of stuff, but being real is vulnerable and awkward so here we are. First thing out of bed today, I had some hotel breakfast, mostly carbs, but man was I craving a waffle. Then, I had planned to exercise. Usually during the day, I’m pretty active, but not necessarily enough to help with fitness and weight loss so I’m trying to be more intentional with how my time is spent and making sure to get some exercise in there. I enrolled in Revelation Wellness’s online workout videos and did one of her 20 minute kickboxing videos.
Then I helped someone. Well, I tried to anyway, but the effort is what counts and that always makes my heart feel good. I always get more from helping someone than the someone gets from my help. I had a hot shower, those are always relaxing. Then I went outside to the pool, it is such a beautiful day today, to read my Bible, do my devotional and another chapter in ‘Grace, Not Perfection’.
I apologize, these photos aren’t stellar quality, but the day was so good, and I didn’t feel like over playing this awesome hand I was dealt so I just went with what I could get.
Then, it got a little cloudy, and I felt a few rain drops so I came in for a snack- freshly picked strawberries. So. Much. Yum!
If you put good in- God, fruits and veggies, kindness- you get good out.
Now, go to something that will make your day so. much. yum! Take a hike, do a craft, tell someone ya love ’em, anything that will free your happiness.
