A New Day

Sunrise*

Today is another opportunity for a fresh start!
I am so much encouraged by your comments given in a previous post when I was down and out as a mom.
I did not feel very much like I could get up and out and about again, but I am getting going again! It is not just for me, but for everyone.  The day is new for every person.  I know there are days that I feel like I messed up too much or have fallen too far behind, BUT we all deserve a new fresh start at life.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23



Yesterday I received a phone call from a friend--and I let it ring and ring.  Honestly I do not like letting people in my life and let people that I know personally know that I am struggling as a young mom.  I do not like letting friends and family know that I have troubles.  Yet, I publish it on the web.  Alas, I answered her call.  

We talked about
1.) Letting in the sunshine!
2.) Taking a walk with Baby!
3.) Getting together and getting some lunch sometime this week
4.) If I ever needed someone to talk to, she wants me to call her.
5.) Listen and Read the Word of God

Which some of these were similiar to what some of you suggested!  :)
My thanks to--Moon Star Mommy and Rachel Joy for being there to encourage me as a young mom!

Today is a new day in which I am just deciding to grab the day, and just take time to be a mom without losing sight of who I am.  I will enjoy my half hour taking a nice hot shower just me while baby is sleeping!  I will take time to taste my food while she is happily playing with her food.  I will count my blessings, and let the SUN actually come through into our house instead of closing the curtains.  I WILL Walk OUTSIDE!

Taking a few minutes to set your mind on things helps flush out the depression by the way!  Just got to keep our minds thinking right!  Life gets hard and difficult...I hope that this new day will be brighter for you.
