Without a doubt, when traveling with a baby, it’s easier to travel with extra hands, ESPECIALLY when baby is sick.
I went with friends and my sister to Savannah this weekend to rest and run a half marathon I needed those three pairs of extra hands to help me help baby survive this trip.
The first two days, I was a stunned, crying mess. It had been a hard week and being in Savannah did not change anything about how much I missed him or how terrible the world appeared.
But friends kept me on my feet and kept baby girl alive and finally, the seas settled a bit on Saturday. I would not say the sun has come out. It is all dark and dreary. But the waves have calmed.
I know sometimes, I just have to keep going and doing life affirming activities. It’s not so much fake it til you make it, as feed yourself healthy food and you will slowly recover. Health food rarely provides instant results.
Other times, it’s ok to just hunker down and let the storm pass. Knowing that you have that anchor of hope.
19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19New International Version (NIV)
I did both this weekend. I hunkered down on survival mode for two days and then I was given strength to push through and keep moving.
