Finally all of my packaging for Tiny Fete has arrived and I was able to put it to good use for a recent order. I am so thankful to have orders. I've been busy! Yay! Last week was surely a test of insecurity, but I'm feeling better. It's amazing the power that insecurity can have. I was all kinds of doubting myself in all areas of my life. This video was a nice little nudge to keep pushing forward (thanks Lindsay!).
Matilda had her first morning at a really sweet mother's morning out program that I found. It killed me. She was so excited to get out the door to go to "school." She was skipping down the hall with her backpack on. She said, "Mama, I'm gonna be a real kid." Tearing up as I write this. Sheesh. Parenting is not for the faint of heart.
I also had my first meeting with Rachel at the shop and it felt great to be out and have a little time to get things done. Then we got home and a nap was not happening. Just rolling with the punches and doing what I can to keep calm and be kind and firm at the same time. Tricky business. Napping and parenting aside, something else that has really been troubling me is people in my life who I thought would be really supportive but aren't (just to clarify I do NOT mean supportive monetarily). I have so many awesome people cheering me on that I shouldn't care, right? I wish that were true. Gotta keep loving people anyway. God is teaching me that daily. Hardest lesson in life is learning how to not focus on ourselves and to forgive always. 70 x 7. - Lesley
