Friends, It's been a LONG time since I last wrote a post , and I've been really inconsistent about posting since I started HebrewDawn. I've realized that I need to get back on the posting wagon, especially so I can share some things that have been weighing on my heart.
I'm going to be really honest with you. Becoming a mama to VHP is the best thing I have ever done, while being the hardest thing at the same time. It feels like everyone wants to tell you how beautiful and magical it is, without telling you the other side of the story. It's like they're afraid they'll scare you away from this beautiful and magical journey called motherhood. Yes motherhood is beautiful and full of many magical moments, but it is also messy and has its tearful moments.
I've been in the business of babies, preschoolers, children, and teens for over twenties years now. Many folks in my family said I would be great at this motherhood thing and wouldn't need help. Guess what? I don't have lots of questions on what do or how to do things, but I DO need help and do have questions from time to time. Every single one of us on this journey of motherhood (fatherhood for you dads), needs help! It takes a village to raise a child. That village can look very different for every single one of us, but we all need our village. Society is focused on having us say, "I can do it" or "I've got it covered" or "I can do this by myself!" But all of that isn't true. We are built for community, and we need to say "I can do it, but I need you by my side on this path."
It's my hope to share some honest stories about this journey of being a mama, and how I am trying to manage it. I also plan to share other stories on being a wife, balancing work + life, and other various things. I hope you'll join me for the ride and poke me if I'm not posting enough.
