Moms spin so many plates and go (grow) in so many directions that at the end of the year, there is a "thinning" of sorts. Much like our cervix has to thin in childbirth, the pains that bring us to the end of a year, also leave us ripe for new Life to be born.
This year was full of unexpected gains and losses for me (and many I've had the privilege to journey Life with). I suspect you too.
I wish for you to see and embrace the abundant gifts that remain and that you can envision 2019 being your happiest and healthiest YET.
