Overwhelmed. {Explaining my absence}

It has been over a week since I posted anything on Mommy Snippets.

The past week has been a whirlwind of activity and to put it simply…

I’m overwhelmed.


Overwhelmed with God’s Faithfulness and Love over my life.

Overwhelmed with the way God answers prayers.

Overwhelmed with the blessing of an amazing husband who has stretched himself over and beyond to keep the fort running as I recover.

Overwhelmed with the support of friends who stepped in when they didn’t have to and just showered us with more than we could ask.

Overwhelmed with joy as my beautiful family of 4 has expanded to become a family of 5.

Oh yes, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude…

much gratitude.

Psalm 981

While I’m bursting to share the awesome way with which our tiniest blessing arrived, I’m going to save it for the days to come. (I promise!)

I’m taking some time off to recuperate and just bask in the blessing of family, love and togetherness.

Thank you for your love, support and continued encouragement.

    Congratulations! I’m so glad to hear about your newest blessings. When I first read your “Overwhelmed” title post I thought oh no, to much going on, bad thoughts immediately.
