Giving thanks in all things....

Postpartum depression is just a given for me...so I have to work extra hard, take extra vitamins, and look for the good in things. So here's my list:

~ For clean diapers (even if they were stained blue by a pair of new jeans)
~ For Breanna helping around the house (even if she doesn't understand sorting laundry..see 1st)
~ For a lil girl who's working hard to grow (see 2nd)
~ For my abundant blessings (would you believe I'm supposed to be infertile?)
~ For my dh (see 4th lol!) who was able to take off two whole weeks to take care of me
~ For my screaming baby Nathan (friend of a friend just lost her baby, with no warning)
~ For my abundant milk supply (even if I'm waking up soaked every two hours)
~ For new flooring (eventually)

I'm sorry to hear about the postpartum depression. Even when you KNOW it's temporary and you KNOW it's "just" your hormones kicking your butt, that doesn't make it any easier! I am glad to hear DH is able to take care of you. Please take good care of yourself, too! Be very kind and patient and forgiving of yourself. Eat lots of protein and veggies and fruits. Drink lots of water. Get some sleep (easier said than done, I know!). Ask for help before you get to the end of your rope. And wait it out . . . I hope it does not last TOO long!
