After being asked if I wanted to participate in a Mother's Day blog, I accepted as being a mom is new to me. But putting my thoughts of motherhood into words has been a struggle. How can you accurately convey something you are so emotional about?
When I was pregnant I had posted a blog about how excited I was to have this baby that was going to show the world how in love I was with my husband, and I still believe this, but little did I know the world was going to show me how in love I was with my baby. I'm mesmerized with every coo, whimper, laugh, sneeze, cough, yawn, and his smile... now I claim to not be an emotional person ...but now when he looks at me and smiles, I have to do all I can to not shed a tear. Maybe it's because I value his life so much more because of what we've endured, but he's just made an improved me.
I feel we've had many instances that God has opened up my eyes and shown me a glimpse of how he sees me. Jesus served everyone when He was here, and I look at how I take care of Lincoln, and realize God does all of this for me. Maybe that's why He made us mothers and fathers, because if I can have so much love for my son here on earth, I can't even imagine the love my heavenly Father has for me. And I thank Him for the gift of motherhood. Though it's been a rollercoaster ride, we don't know any better, but just to keep moving forward through it all. And as long as Lincoln keeps flashing me smiles, they'll give me the strength to keep pressing onward.
It may by Mother's Day, but today this mother is blessed to have another day to share with her son, and I shall rejoice.
Let your mother and father be glad, and let her who bore you rejoice.
