Thank God for this little girl. The first picture was from this past Saturday and that is the face of an overwhelmed, tired, broken woman. A day where you think whatever this feeling is, will never end. Where I was crying at the drop of a hat and this little one smiled for me and comforted me all day.
Mom guilt had been washing over me for 2 days, guilt for having to work full time and be away from her, for telling her she couldn't go to work with me and she had to go to school, feeling bad enough when she tells you sometimes she cries for you and her dad at school, guilt because we had only 10 weeks left as a family of three. Her dad was traveling for work this day, guilt because there has been more going on with family and worrying about that, and just topping off the day was taking one of our dogs to the vet. I can laugh now but at the time, taking the dog by myself seemed to be too much.
I guess these are the mood swings they warn you about during pregnancy. And they do happen but like the waves of an ocean or a rain storm, they do pass. I don't have profound words of advice to make it feel better. I just had to make it through the day and pray for a better morning.
So today, I have smile on my face, proudly showing my 31 week belly and thank God again for my 2 blessings.
