Place: airport

Poison: chai latte

Favorite Things: my sister and Max

I am sitting here at the airport after a crazy day, knowing that I am so glad there have been seasons in my life where I have been stretched.

Often in my job, I felt overwhelmed, stressed and stretched. It was uncomfortable, it was difficult at times but I know that it truly grew me large on the inside.

I am sure it was all in preparation for times like this. I honestly feel so peaceful. Charl has been discharged from hospital and really wanted Max and I to go to my friends wedding for the weekend. So I’m flying with Max for the first time by myself and he is 7 weeks old.

I am so grateful for times of stress that truly do show us what we are made of. Traveling with a newborn, means prams, bassinets, car seats, hire cars, dummies, clothes, baby slings and then the baby wipes.

Packing all this whilst picking up my husband from hospital, a hair appointment, cooking dinner, cleaning the house and the list continues…writing a blog!!!

Yes, a mums work is never done, but I love it. I love caring for Max.

I honestly feel the most content I have ever been in my life.

I believe this is because I went through really hard seasons that grew me. I was stretched beyond recognition at some points and my little man bears the fruit of those seasons today.

What is stretching you? How are you responding to it?

What is coming in your future that will benefit from the stretch in your today?

Embrace the pain…take a deep breath and acknowledge the fear. You never know what in your future will benefit from it.

I love this scripture

“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule. (Matthew 5:3 MSG)

Woah! I would not have ever asked for the last week to happen, but it truly has tested me.

Love ya
