Today I am grateful for friends.
The last few weeks have been a bit stressful and as a result there has been some tension between Andrew and I (remember my postpartum blog post…yeah it’s all my fault, haha). Anyway, we had some friends invite us over for a BBQ for Labor Day today. And it was so refreshing and needed. In general today was a great day! Andrew got to work on the car as he likes to do and I just relaxed with the kids, then we went to this BBQ. It was your picture perfect gathering. All the husbands were out by the grill talking and all the woman were talking inside about being moms, and how our husbands take forever in the bathroom, and about children and everything! And you know what, it was so nice just to be reminded that I am not alone.
I am not the only one that lets my husbands long bathroom breaks bug the heck out of me. I am not that only one that has kids that misbehave, I am not the only one that struggled during my pregnancy and after my delivery. I am not the only one!
Today was a reminder as to why we need friendships. Family is great, and a complete necessity in life. But so are friends. Because you need someone who is not related to you to tell you they understand, to show that these problems occur in all families!
It was also so fun to see Cora play with her friends, and to see her develop friendships. And learn to share! Haha.
Today, was what I needed.
So thank you to my friends for helping me today, more than they probably will ever realize!
