She's here and she's beautiful.
Our darling Blossom went through the labour of a lifetime, 50 hours with serious complications, but she's glowing with a pride and love that cannot be measured as she holds her newborn daughter, Cully May.
Our Blossom lost 80 percent of her blood volume and is having many blood transfusions, but she's coming along wonderfully. Motherhood has been her desire since she was 6 years old, and now her dream has come true.
Thank you for your prayers over these past few months. They proved to be more valuable than we ever imagined.
After the trauma and celebration of the past two days, something Blossom said made me change my mind about which Gentle Domesticity block I'd share with you this month.
She said "nothing went to plan", and those words are resonating deeply within me.
We do make plans, we do have hopes of a desired process and outcome - yet life isn't our plan.
It unfolds in it's own way and it's up to us to choose how we accept the challenges, joy and surprises that fall upon our life path.
Wherever you are, wherever I am, choose to bloom. Look for the good, look for the worthy, look for the hope.
