My husband sent me an article about a girl-turned-woman to mama who climbed mountains in Alaska. She never quit climbing after her kids were born yet changed the sails a bit.
He said you remind me of her…. You have that power. You don’t stop…you aren’t just a mom. You follow your heart, I know you’ll never stop.
I melted. I needed to hear that. With Memaw being sick, the stomach pains, kids being out of school and the road getting in high gear I have been wired and tired J
I have been home 2 days and I still have an entire laundry room full of dirty clothes and 3 suitcases laying on the bedroom floor packed to the gills with kids toys, clothes, shoes and yep fishing nets.
I went to LA and felt seen ya know? Like glamorous and thought…Wait is this where I am supposed to be? Did I miss something? This is easy being here. I have on make up and my hair is coiffed. People are bringing me things. I am spending the day with a Mega Star.
Then…I get back to my farm, a farm I never would’ve dreamed of living on and I feel my roots. My calm. My serenity. My boys, my animals and I know…Ok God that’s right I’m here. I am here.
I sit on my front porch with both babies on my lap. I see the chickens, goats, ducks in my cement pond, horses, cows, clouds, sun, barn, feel the breeze through the trees and hear the birds chirping and know I am home.
So girls. Don’t Stop. Keep Going. We are never just one thing. We want to have babies, we don’t want babies, we wanna create, we want to build, we want to stay home, we want to fly. Do it all.
