Brave New Motherhood

Sharing Our Blessings

Sharing Our Blessings

A few weeks ago, I asked our BraveMoms what they’re grateful for; their answers filled my heart with happiness, gratitude, and a reminder to keep celebrating the good in my life. It was such an unexpected gift to know what other moms are thankful for.

In reading their thoughts, I found myself remembering little moments of bliss I’d tucked away in my mind: the dreamy look of a just fed baby, the warmth of a tiny hand grasping my finger, and the sweet smile of a baby who believes his mama is the center of the universe.

Since November is a month of giving thanks, I wanted to share the gift of our BraveMoms' blessings with you. I hope that you too can enjoy the wonderful expressions of others’ grateful hearts.

Reading these words of gratitude from other moms helps remind me of what’s important and good in my life: snuggles on the couch, the careless abandon of playing tag on the beach, and our beautiful community of strong and magical BraveMoms.

It’s amazing how focusing on gratefulness puts my heart in the right place. It’s hard to complain when I’m being grateful for all the positives. Thank you so much to the moms who took the time to share their blessings with me. I’m so honored to help you celebrate the things that bring you joy.

Wishing you a beautiful holiday season, full of snuggles and joy.

Be you bravely,
Deeanne
