The postpartum season of life brings about a lot of joy, a lot of tears and many times, a lot of emotions we aren't prepared for. In my care, that emotion was anxiety. After waiting 6 years to have another baby, I was thrust back into baby mode and honestly, wasn't prepared. I spent many nights sobbing, wondering how I was ever going to get back on track. My new routines (and a whole lot of grace) saved me.
While routines will not be the fix for all moms in this difficult stage, especially those dealing with crippling depression, it gave me more peace than I had in a long time. The predictability of my routines gave me strength and handed me some of the control I felt like I lost when I gave birth to my precious boy.
This is another heart-driven episode that I am honored to share with you.
