my friend's kids...

are simply wonderful. I can't put into words the emotion I have except to say that it is really meaningful to see my friends as moms and experience their process and journey as make that transition.

I won't say that it hasn't been hard, it has in the past year been a struggle for me to find my place between discussions about burp clothes and potty training. And I also can say that I know it will be a little while yet until we step into that phase of our lives so I will continue to struggle to find my place in those conversations.

But in the past week I have had several opportunities to sit with, hold and entertain their little ones and have been so blessed by their kiddos. The moments that I let go of trying to be in the secret society of motherhood and get over myself, I get lost in loving those moments. And I am really thankful because it feels good to let go and love my friends where they are at including loving their kids.
