Happy Blogoversary To Me!!



I can't believe today is my 3-year blogging anniversary! I am amazed at all the Lord has brought me through from the time I started this journey until now. This blog began as a sort of therapy as I emerged from what was an 18-month journey from the depths of postpartum depression, anxiety, and (at the beginning) psychosis which included two hospitalizations. I truly have so much for which to be thankful!


This blog was my therapy on my journey to being a healthy mom for this little guy. I never even knew what a blog was until after reaching out and joining a MOPS group one of the moms sent me a link to hers, Neener Girl and Family. Thank you Renee! My blog started out as a daily journal to chronicle my victories, and it evolved from there.

Here I am in the beginning of my 18-mo. postpartum "sickness" journey;
I can remember distinctly the depths of despair I was feeling with the overwhelming
 thought that there was no way I could capably raise this child.

And in this picture, finally emerging from it victoriously, and experiencing some of the first true joys of motherhood as I took my then 20-mo-old on his first sledding excursion.

 And here is the now 4-1/2-yr-old face of this sweet little boy 
that is the greatest gift the Lord has ever bestowed upon me.

I am so thankful for all of you who stop here. You have blessed me in more ways than you know!

As always,
Thank you for visiting!

Thanks for following on twitter! I can so relate to your journey. While my struggled with postpartum depression wasn't quite as severe, it was more than normal and lasted a year. And of course it was in a day where it wasn't discussed or really diagnosed so I had no idea what was wrong with me! But the Lord put great people in my path--especially my MOPS group who provided a lifeline for me for several years. Blessings to you as your journey on in victory. I look forward to reading more. :)

Oh Congratulations your boy is very handsome and he has an amazing Mom who made it through and should be very proud of that. It is a tough road sometimes but we do have that strength to make it.
Look at that face he is the reason.
