I know we all have those weeks every now and then when it feels like the world is against us. Doors are shut in our face both literally and figuratively and it feels a little like no matter what we do or how hard we try things just aren’t going to turn around.
Well, my lovelies I certainly had one of those weeks last week until I journeyed to Birmingham, Alabama to help celebrate the opening of Brookwood Women’s Medical Center. I had the great privilege to meet some 250 woman who wanted to be part of the Brookwood celebrations and to ask me literally anything, and I mean anything about the world of reality TV, being a mom, running a business, maternity style, infertility, sex (oh yes I really did mean anything).
What so humbled me was that I met so many women that support and are thankful for what I’m doing and in return I couldn’t be more thankful to them for reminding me of my purpose and giving me the encouragement continue and do even more. I know my company primarily focuses on pregnancy education and fashion at the moment but I truly believe this is only the beginning. What we are here for is to support moms in every way and pregnancy is clearly the beginning.
So thank you Brookwood Medical Center for reminding me why I do what I do. When I got back from the trip I burst through my front door only to be greeted by the beautiful smiles of my boys and I fell onto the couch, looked down at my pregnant belly and thought to myself, I feel like the luckiest woman alive.
So now you can see why thank you just doesn’t seem like a big enough word to truly describe how thankful I am. It sort of seems amazingly apt that thanksgiving is just around the corner to remind me what’s really important and all the things I should be thankful for. Perhaps we need a bi-weekly thanksgiving just to help us keep the right perspective. Although, even for me that would involve too much pumpkin pie!
