Feeling Verklempt

I found this picture just now on my husband's Facebook page. (Yes, we're both on there.)

And I just can't get over it. My teeny tiny new baby. My little girl (who celebrates her 5th birthday this week.) and Me.

Been struggling with my identity lately. Been wondering where the mom part of me ends and feeling selfish about having a part of me to myself. I'm not sure that makes any sense whatsoever, but it is what it is.

This picture makes me feel like I can almost see my Heavenly Father in my life. The way the light is hitting Anna. Lukie's tiny hand on his soft, hours old face. God has touched my heart. And because I need to be more grateful:

1. dinner with friends 2. hugs for no reason 3. sunday naps

I think I understand sometimes about wondering where mom ends and where one begins...it is such a blurry line.

I'm always struggling with this but lately more so than usual. It's weighing heavy on my heart...

I love this photo and you are right....the light is Heavenly.

Who knew there were venomous caterpillars? Why is it that we had to move to fl where everything in either gigantic or venomous? Honestly?!?!?

Ps. does this count as an RsVp for Anna's party? We'll be there!
