It was late one night, I couldn't sleep; I opened my laptop and before I knew it this post was written...
To the Mom whose heart is not yet complete, longing for that first positive pregnancy test: I say to you, don't let anyone make you feel less than. You are strong, and worth SO much more than you may know. You are alive because God wants you to be and your life is unfinished. Keep your chin up as you wait for a little one in your arms, try and be open to what road God is laying out in front of you because it may not look like the path you had initially envisioned.
To the Mom whose heart is broken from saying goodbye to your baby too soon: I say to you, you will survive. As hard as it is to stop crying, one day the tears will dry up. As hard as it is to get out of bed, you will find your foothold again. You will NEVER forget your child, but find ways to mother them on this side of heaven. You are a mom, and always will be a mom- don't ever let someone steal that from you. And one day, you will smile again- and trust me it is ok to do so!
To the Mom whose heart is bursting at the seams from overflowing blessings: I say to you, relish in every moment with your child. Don't take a single day for granted, because we aren't promised tomorrow. Be thankful but humble, because you never know who around you wants desperately what you have. Give yourself a break from time to time, because you can only be the best mom when you recharge your soul.
