My cup? It runneth over...

I am living the haze of the sleep-deprived, hormonal, moody, exhausted, slightly neurotic, just-had-a-baby, Mother. I have so much to do, and am so tired, and I should really be sleeping instead of sittting here at the computer. But I just wanted to say this:

I am beyond grateful. For these people, my people. Shane, Georgie and Charlie. My world is so small, but so precious. At times it feels like they are taking everything from me... but I wouldn't change this. It is absolutely priceless. These days, although they may be hard, are what it's all about.

I am so glad for what I have.

I am also so grateful for the people around me who are keeping me up. My husband, who is doing his best, even though he bears the brunt of my hormonal outbursts. My sisters, who are helping in so many ways. And my Mum. She is doing so much for our little family, and so much for me. I am so grateful for the Mother I was blessed with. I hope I can be such a Mother one day. She has just been taking care of me, in so many ways. I cannot thank her enough. Words just can't express it.

To everyone who is helping keep out little family going at the moment,

Linking up with Kate for Thankful Thursdays.

  4. Robyn, Oh, I remember that new born haze....I am thinking of you and am glad that you have family to help and support you

  5. How lovely to have such wonderful support around you. Enjoy this wonderful time

  6. Oh Robyn I am so glad you have so much support. Those early days can be so tiring and the whole adjustment thing a big challenge. Stoked you are so blessed with love.


  7. Hey Robyn,

    It sounds like you and me have the same sort of support around us!! My mum and sisters and peeps were amazing when I had all my babies. It makes me wonder how people do the baby thing alone... I sure wouldn't be able to do it alone!

    Good on you for writing this - in those first weeks of blurry baby bubbledom it can be hard to remember to say a big heart felt thank you. I am sooooo impressed that you are back to blogging already - champion!


Thanks for stopping by, I would so love to hear your thoughts!
