To The Woman At The Bridal Shower

…that offered to hold my baby while I ate, thank you. I had told you he had colic. You said I still needed a break.

To the woman at the bridal shower, thank you for asking to hold the baby a second time considering the first time I said, “I’m fine” but was actually sleep deprived and exhausted. You knew I was pretending to have it covered. I’m glad you reasked and I said yes. You did calm him down so well and I was able to eat and drink some water.

To the woman at the bridal shower, who I didn’t know before that day and whose name I cannot even remember, thank you. I went to the bridal shower with my two month old and was so nervous he was going to be loud and take attention away from my best friend who was getting married.

To the woman at the bridal shower, you don’t even know how a simple gesture made such a big impact and I will always remember. Thank you.

To the woman at the bridal shower, thank you for lending a hand to someone who was a new mom and this was her first time around more than a few family members. I was nervous going into that day but you made me feel comfortable and powerful.

Thank you.

I will never how you reassured me so effortlessly that I was doing well and why you were so sweet and kind to help someone you didn’t know. I hope I can be this woman to another mother. Another stranger or another friend that didn’t know she needed help. This is what it is all about. Supporting one another and lifting each other up. ❤

Love,

A new mom that was impacted

❤ Hope

  1. A man once stopped his truck in the middle of the Target parking lot to load up my diapers and things for me while I buckled the little boys into their car seats. Those little moments can make such a huge impact!
