That is what I said to my friend Paige the other day when she asked how I was doing. It’s hard to explain how I can be so bogged down with stress by so many good things happening in our lives but it hit me, it’s the transition.
In labor, transition is the most painful part of the process. Many women throw up and want to give up and we cry and cry. I am pretty sure I heard about this one lady in Guatamala whose head literally spun all the way around like an owl due to the pain. My point? Transition is HARD. But it means the end is near.
In my case, the payoff is a new home with a lower interest rate, my very own laundry room (no more dirty diapers in the kitchen!), a big yard, and more space for our family to grow. The payoff is a happy husband who loves this house and a son who will likely start climbing the giant Magnolia tree long before I am ready. The payoff is growth.
And sometimes growth stings a little.
But it’s all good baby. It’s all good.
