In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, I’m sharing from our 100 Words Project every day.

They knew what to do and I counted my blessings, over and over and over again. Being a mother is certainly not always easy, but I know I am fortunate to say that breastfeeding has been.
