I’m sitting here at home and I cannot help but think about all the things I have gone through in the last 25 years of my life.
Some great moments and some ‘not so great’ moments. However, I personally believe that such experiences has prepared myself for the sacred role I am about to embark in the next couple of days. Growing up, my mother has always been my absolute role model and the one person I wish to be when I myself become a mother. She is my definition of hard work and I know for sure if I become half the person that she is, I’d consider myself to be a great mom.
Although I am married and have a family of my own, I am continuously surrounded by powerful and such hardworking women. These women give meaning to the sacred role they hold as a mother and they have played a huge part in my life.
In the next couple days or so, or in 10 days to be exact; I will be a mother. A mother to a beautiful little girl. My heart is filled with so many emotions and I know for sure all of the things I have gone through in the past, has prepared me for this moment. Just knowing that Heavenly Father has chosen us to be parents to one of his children in this life, is humbling on its own.
I don’t know exactly how I’m gona be once my little girl is here, (probably an emotional wreck) lol- but all I know is that I will try my best to be the best mother I could be to her. I was raised by the best mother that I know and continue to be surrounded by such amazing bunch of women; so I think I’m gona be ok.
My husband and I are excited for the arrival of our baby and as newly parents to be, we are looking forward to the sleep less nights. Well, I don’t know about my husband but I am going to have some good sleep. I think I’ve done my part for the past 9 months carrying this child, now it’s my husband’s turn lol
I am excited, scared, nervous all in one! but one thing i know for sure is, that my heart is full.
lots of love,
*special thanks to my dear friend Mele for taking these beautiful pictures!
