Today I have been blessed beyond measure.
It’s been a rough week. The baby has days and nights mixed up, so I’m a bit lacking on sleep. And there have been issues, so many issues, with my other kiddos. It’s been rough. I’ve hit my knees so many times I’m pretty sure they have callouses. And they may be bruised. I’ve been looking for devotionals and begging for anything to bring peace to my house. Therapeutic runs can only do so much.
And I’ve been working so hard on the blog. Trying to make it reach more people who have experienced infertility or are struggling with adoption or the difficulties that come with adopting a child from foster care. And things have been semi-stagnant. But there have been glimmers of beauty. I’m a part of an amazing community of women who are all about (in)couragement. A couple of girls I’ve never met before have reached out to help me master the non-techy issues I’d been pulling my hair out over on the blog. (Thank you ladies!!!)
And today the blog is being featured on the SITS Girls website. More women have taken a peek at my little bit of writing today than I had ever hoped for. And my words are reaching out. I’ve had comments from women who have experienced infertility and are looking for hope. I’ve had remarks from women who know some one who has faced this giant and are glad to have found a resource. I’ve connected with other adoptive parents and build some new friendships.
So the week has been a bit difficult, but beauty has risen from it. I’m praying for peace and finding grace in the Word and through relationships. I’m being blessed beyond measure, and I hope I’m blessing back.
