Walking through the wilderness

Yesterday I shared of one of the sweetest times of my life with Jesus. Today I’m sharing what came next.  I hate to paint a picture of everything falling into place and being easy. The last few months have been one of the most difficult of my life. Very similar to my first trimester with Vivi, I again felt not only an overwhelming exhaustion and nausea but a sadness and a lack of motivation to do anything. Each day simply
