"This too shall pass" is a phrase I've hated and loved for many years. In some ways, it's callous - not validating how difficult the situation may be. In other ways, it's incredibly wise; even when we don't want to admit it, change is the only certainty in life.

Yesterday, I was reminded of this phrase again as I'm three weeks into being a new parent. I'd been really struggling with nursing and sleep deprivation...but I thankfully turned a corner with the help of a couple wise people. We are not meant to do this life alone!! And I can already tell, the classic phrase that started this post will be one I'll need to consult again on my new, beautiful journey.
