the sling diaries III love+adventure || inpsiration
Every day my children's eyes are fixed upon me. They are learning self-worth from my example. I want them to see vibrant and beautiful things when they picture me in their childhood memories. That is what makes me who I am. It keeps me pushing through when I want to give up. It forces me to laugh when at times I would rather cry. It reminds me that I should dream big and show them how to chase the stars. I want them to see that I not only believe in them, but in myself. Not a moment is spent where they are not affected by who I am. All that I am. I have always wanted to be a light and inspiration to my children. I want them to find safety in my arms and comfort in my touch. I want them to think highly of me, even in the darkest of times. I can't be any of these things for them unless I am happy with who I am. I want them to know God is my source. I find myself in Him and Him alone. I want Him to be that light that brightens their paths. I want Him to be their everything. And together we can look to tomorrow and know that we are loved and we are cherished. And with God our dreams are never out of reach. My mother has always been a beautiful example of how to chase your dreams without sacrificing your character. I am so inspired by all that she is and all that she stands for. She has faith that moves mountains! I pray my boys one day feel the same about me.
What a beautiful way to end my maternity leave by sharing my first diary post last friday. It is a very sentimental transition as I go back to work. It has been a very emotional week, but I have treasured every moment I had off to spend with sweet Wrennyn. If only I could slow life and make his first months last a bit longer... it all just happens so fast. I want to say a special thank you to my beautiful friend April for capturing so many beautiful moments that I will treasure dearly. We had them taken in our church, a place where so many beautiful moments have happened for our family, including our wedding! April, Not only are you a great photographer, but you are the most amazing friend a girl could ask for. Every one in this world should have a friend like you! I treasure you greatly! We all know you are a real friend if you let me edit my own photo shoot! I owe you big time! xo check out more of April's beautiful work here I wear the pure linen sling in organic maple c/o sakura bloom
