It’s taken me a long time to find the words and the courage to share these feelings but I hope in doing so other postpartum Mamas in similar situations may find encouragement and that others in society may be inspired to be more gentle – considering their words and intentions.
I don’t do winters well. I don’t like being cold. I don’t like snow. And I don’t do well without sun. So it brings me great joy and happiness when summer lingers.
This Fall has been refreshing. Days of warmth and sun, rainbows and roses.
Yes! Full-bloom roses in November. I know it’s cliche but they were the perfect reminder for me to stop and smell the roses…literally.
It’s been wonderful enjoying these last lingering moments of summer. We’ve been spending every chance we get outside, enjoying the sun while we can. The days are growing shorter and colder and winter is near. So for now, I will enjoy each lingering day with roses, rainbows and sun-kissed cheeks.
