The blog looks pretty empty in the recent days. But have no fear! The month of October was dedicated to a series that appeared on a different page of my website. I spent the month writing little letters everyday to my little girls.
I'd love for you to check them out, share any that resonate with you, and let me know what you think. As I wrote, I realized my own heart needed to be reminded of the truths and lessons I so want my daughters to know. I hope you find encouragement in them!
This week has been off to an ugly start. Sunday afternoon my sweet Katherine and I got sick within minutes of each other. Her poor, helpless little self was so scared and confused and shaken up. After she got sick the first time we went up to the bathroom so she could sit in the bathtub, but that's when I ended up helpless myself, hunched over the toilet. And that left my little one even more scared and confused and shaken up. My heart ached as she stood there crying and I could not comfort her.
I’m sitting here rocking my almost nine month old daughter.
We are both crying.
She’s fighting sleep, as usual. And I’m fighting constant exhaustion.
You have made me a mother. And so on this Mother’s Day, I celebrate you, sweet girl.
You are nearing being 7 months old. And I am constantly amazed at how much you have grown, developed, and learned. You already make us so proud. Katherine Elizabeth Connatser, we are completely in love with you (and your precious baby chunkiness only adds to our love).
Sarah loves Jesus and her family and is passionate about addressing the urgent spiritual and physical needs around the world. She is the wife of Spencer and mama of Katherine and Claire, and they live in Nashville, TN. She runs a photography business with her husband and writes in order to offer encouragement and invite others to choose grace, joy, and gratitude in the adventure and the mundane. She loves traveling and reading; she will choose unsweet tea over sweet and bootcut jeans over skinny; and she is all sorts of awkward with small talk but thrives with deep conversations.
