A safe place

35 weeks pregnant...
and life has really made a drastic shift in our family.

Right now, my ever ballooning body and tired mind is carrying a pretty heavy load.
I have my family on my shoulders, determined to make it through this rough spot.

I believe every family goes through these times.
Times where your partner needs your shoulder to lean on, to be their rock.
Where you see them vulnerable and open.
In need of so much love and understanding.
A safe place.

When I said my vows before my husband, before God...that is what I promised.

"In sickness and in health...
To love and to cherish..."

I question my strength though, but would never say that to him.
I am not the strongest person in the world.
I would be the squirrel in the forest full of bears.

But this squirrel will do everything in her power not to let anything happen to her family.

Said a prayer for you. Hang in there.

You are way stronger than you give yourself credit for. An even when you think you are not just remember:
He is with you in your highest of highs and your lowest of lows he will never leave you nor forsake you.
