My Mom Friends -- I didn't have any close girlfriends growing up, and only a few in college. Many of my friends in college were guys, a relationship that naturally changes a lot when you get married. So I didn't have much experience of close female friendship until I met my mommy friends. For me, motherhood has created a bond with other women that I never thought I would experience. How would I have gotten through the past six years without them? And I feel like that connection will always be there to those friends from my earliest mommy days, even through geographical moves and life changes.
A Good Novel to Read -- I often watch a little TV on Netflix at night, but in reality it's both more satisfying and more relaxing to get lost in an absorbing book instead. Currently I'm about 2/3 through The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I highly recommend it!
A Great Deal -- This may seem weird or silly to some people, but I feel like God often blesses me through great deals. Yesterday, a lady from a local classifieds group sold me some new-in-package birthday presents for my son for much less than she could have asked for them. I feel so blessed by her lack of greed and am so excited to be able to get these items for my baby. I can't wait to see his face when he opens them!
