I have been having a reflect over our wedding photographs (If you haven’t had a gander at them in all their glory yet, have a look at my most recent #bloggybrides post ‘Bloggy Bride gets married’) and I realised something that I had forgotten about since we opened up all of our amazing gifts and cards; we are loved. We were so overwhelmed by the kindness and happiness that everyone bestowed upon us! So today I am using my weekly musing to make it known that you really should never underestimate how much you truly mean to your friends and family.
I think its easily done isn’t it? After we become Mothers we tend to become adrift from a lot of those who we would usually see frequently; we become estranged from those who were once the best of friends and we are no longer able to visit those who live far and wide.
I have posted previously about ‘Finding your Mama Clan: Friendships after childbirth’ and I think you should have a read if you too are struggling with your friendships after you become a Mama.
It is incredibly difficult to maintain your relationships with everyone after having children and becoming a family and you also make new friendships that will flourish and take up your time.
You become fearful that you are losing people around you, people have forgotten about you and that is an incredibly lonely place in your mind to be.
It is the big moments like a wedding that really make you realise that actually, those who matter most are the ones who, even though you can’t see them as frequently, they understand that and are always there for you regardless!
It was so touching to know that in the midst of everything, when you work so hard and feel like you have lost so many friends and can’t see your family as much after starting your own little family, that they are all still there for you.
So please never underestimate that.
Never think that just because you can’t see people as often that they are no longer a part of your life; they will be there when it matters!
