1. to sustain with food or nutriment; supply with what is necessary for life, health, and growth
I want to pick up a good book and enjoy reading it. (Open to suggestions!)
I want to focus on good health and personal growth. Discovering what fuels my body and challenges my mind and doing more of what feeds my soul.
I want to build a life that is nourishing over seeking breaks to nourish.
2. to cherish, foster, keep alive, etc.
I want to dig deep my relationship roots. I want to keep my friendships alive and cherish the people in my life.
I want to open my door more and invite others in.
I want the people I love to know that they matter and that I am here.
I want to have space for spontaneity.
I want to write more notes of encouragement and love.
I want to cherish these days, this season, with my husband. Knowing how precious and short it is. Knowing that every challenge turns us to each other or away. Knowing we are growing. And somedays, just keeping each other alive.
3. to strengthen, build up, or promote
I want to build up my kids. I want to say yes to one-on-one time. I want to look them in the eye and show them how important and loved they are. I want them to see my eyes screaming- I SEE YOU.
I want to strengthen our bonds. More tickle parties, more books, more bedtime snuggles, more listening, more intentionality. Less “later”, less “not right now”, less “we’ll see”.
I want to soak in their freckles, their dimples, their bedhead. I want to memorize every feature of them all over again.
I want to lay my head down each night knowing I gave the best of me to the ones I love that day.
This blog, this community, this ever-changing team has nourished me so much over the years. I am thankful for every pat on the back, every chance to speak truth about motherhood and sisterhood, every single friendship I get to have because of DMMB. With that heart of gratitude, I am signing off. Thank you all for following my journey. Hope to see you soon.
