Some one was up early this morning shuffling around the kitchen. When I got out of bed, I discovered that the shuffler was in fact Finn, raiding the goodies cupboard. When I say goodies, I mean a space dedicated to yummy waist expanding delights which we save for emergency meltdowns (I don’t just mean the kids, incase you were wondering) or special treats or the occasional “it’s Friday, let’s go mad, it’s the weekend, we deserve it, let’s crack open that bag of naughtiness and think about it tomorrow”. I pray when I walk past the goody cupboard that ‘Mum amnesia’ kicks in or my husband has done a good deed & hoovered up everything before my sugar receptors kick in.
Thankfully, today’s incursion was not unfounded. He wanted some biscuits to go with his morning cuppa & found a box of Go Go Biscuits by @littledishuk . Now these biscuits taste like they belong in the waist expanding sugar dungeon of naughtiness but they are pretty healthy as biscuits go as they contain wholegrain oats, flax & chia seeds. So on reflection, I was pleased Finn picked these rather than triple choc chip biccies. The best thing is, he is never able to finish a whole packet which means more for me. .
The one thing I love more than a birth story is a Mothermoon story.
I’ve got a whole bunch of lovely Mothermoon stories from some amazing mums coming soon that I can’t wait to share!
In the meantime, there’s a new page on my website (link in bio) dedicated to Mothermoon stories. I’ve uploaded the ones from @amumvoice @jujuinlondon and @carmenibclc that I had previously shared on the blog. Go check it out for inspiration on how to give yourself the start to motherhood that you deserve!
And if you have your own Mothermoon story to share get in touch if you’d like to be featured 💕
I've learnt this: we repeat what we don't repair. 'Hurt people' also end up hurting others. When one is bitter, you can cause someone else to be bitter. It only takes time. Last year, this had to end. I knew where lack of repair (lack of closure) and hurt leads to and it had to stop. Forgive, ask God of forgiveness for grace and move on swiftly. Maybe their past explained their behaviour and who I am (and what they couldn't be) caused them to pass on hurt, but it had to stop. Irregardless of the circumstances, because you value your soul above reputation, and you know that you have to give yourself the chance to heal before you too spur out the venom they poured on you on others. All gracefully. So, are you in pain? Feeling hurt and it's going on the 'beyond repair' stage? Take action so it doesn't spread! Remember how it made you feel? Don't pass it on. Sort it out ASAP.
