Postpartum

So, I think watching the video at the hospital with a section on postpartum made Jeff a little worried, or maybe he's just teasing me. ;) You decide. Either way, he's asked me a few times what I'm going to do while he's at work, what I'm going to do for me, etc. He told me I should work on my hobbies. Well, my hobbies are already packed, and I don't want to open the boxes.

So . . . perhaps my blog will be my hobby right now!

Anyway, I really, really love this song.

Aaron Shust—My Savior, My God


Lyrics
I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned
I only know at His right hand
Stands one who is my Savior

I take Him at His word and deed
Christ died to save me; this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Chorus (2x's)
My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior's always there for me
My God: He was, my God; He is
My God is always gonna be

Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior

Chorus (2x's)

(Instrumental)

Chorus: (2x's)

My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior loves, My Savior lives

  2. This is a little random, but didn't I catch word of you composing your own song a while back? What's the skinny on that?

    Definitely make sure you do something for YOU every day... even if it's just primping. And I've also heard to keep an open mind, that life as a mommy won't be exactly the way you thought. Don't be disappointed (or essentially depressed) that things don't go the way you imagined/ want, but take those curve balls as a fun surprise.

    Also, don't get tied down by feeling like you have to still be you as a mom. Now you have to re-create yourself as a mom. Like, I still love volleyball, but I don't have the Muncie YSA to play with three or four times a week... so, we're looking into kayaking, or maybe going on pretty hikes and taking our cameras.

    You're amazing. Just roll with it, and see where it takes you.

  3. I worried about the depression thing too. My best advice is, if you're frustrated or whatever, don't try to ignore it, just let it go (not at the baby of course) and then do something fun and uplifting. Because there will be frustration, and add that to lack of sleep... it's easy to start thinking you might be depressed. Call me anytime!
    As another hobby option, you could read my story... :)
    AND I can't wait to see you in a few weeks.
