My Blessing Way

As I reflect on 2014, I am caught in an emotional whirlwind thinking of how I gave birth last year.  It was by far the most amazing day of Andy and my life.  However I would say that the second best day of last year was my beautiful blessing way that my girld threw for me.  Alot of people ask what the difference is between a blessing way and a baby shower.  A blessing way is more for the mommy-to-be, to completely adorn her in love and light and focus on her more instead of the baby.  I had to completely surrender to the attention and let them take care of me.  I recieved henna on my belly, a foot massage in flowers and essential oils, a huge handmade dream catcher, and everyone made red bracelets to cut when I went into labor.  They set up a food train  for me and got the phone numbers organized for the bracelet cutting.  We shared stories and ate a ton of gorgeous healthy food and lounged under the sun with puppies.  It was truly one of the most special days for me last year.  And now I know the difference between a shower and a blessing way.  And I can't wait to give it back to my girls when the time comes for them
