Sometimes the most valuable gift is the light at the end of the tunnel.
The dearest people are the ones who can tell you, “That is normal. This season will pass. The hormones are crazy. It will get better.”
Keep those sweet ladies (because yes, they will be ladies!) close by.
Dear new mama, you’re not alone. Talk to the women who are just a step or two ahead of you. They’ll give you some hope and hold your arms up when you’re too tired to pray yourself. And then suddenly you’ll be able to see the glimmers of hope sparkling all around you.
