Mother’s Day! As I write this post I am just over 37 weeks pregnant. Today, Mother’s Day holds an entirely new meaning for me. New life is continually fusing and forming inside my body. Inside my body. A beating heart and a soul are being woven within.
Although the first trimester felt like an eternity, (oh the nausea!), the past days, weeks and months have gone by so quickly. Baby girl on the way becomes more real every day. Her movements are strong within me. I am so excited to hold her little hand. Nervous too. I find myself wondering all about her; what she will look like. What color hair and eyes will she have? Will she be an introvert or super outgoing? Will she be incredibly smart like her dad? So many questions.
How will I take care of this precious gift God has blessed Alex and I with? Ask Google, Research, ask mom, talk to other other mom’s, read books. The list goes on and I am left overwhelmed by the blessing of life.
I am beginning to believe you learn as you go. Aside from trusting God alone, I can glean wisdom here and there of course. Accepting that perfection is unattainable calms me down a bit. So, I know I don’t have what it takes to do it all. And that’s okay.
I can and will trust in God’s perfect time. Rest in the truth He is the Good Shepherd and He will lead the way.
Thanks to my mom, I have an idea of what being a “good” mom takes. Perhaps it will become more natural as time goes by. One of God’s greatest gifts for me has been my mom. She’s amazing. Crazy, hard working, creative and fun. I love how she has become an inspiration for me in life and now in motherhood.
One of my desires is to inspire my daughter to live life purpose, love and serve others well.
This brave little girl in my womb, this soul growing within me is my favorite mother’s day gift ever!
Happy Mother’s Day!
