On this Mother’s Day, as I look down at my growing belly, my heart swells with love and happiness as I anxiously await the arrival of my baby girl. As I hold on to these last precious moments of carrying her, I can already feel her growing too quickly. Although I cannot wait to share her with everyone, I know that I am going to miss the silent moments we have shared together these past eight months. My eyes fill with happy tears as I begin to imagine how much her father and I will smother her with kisses, snuggles, and a lifetime of love. Even though I have not met her yet, she has already opened up my heart completely and taught me how to recognize the true riches this world has to offer. I thank God each day for bringing her to me when I needed her most, and I’m truly honored that He has given me a role of a lifetime – a mom on this beautiful Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mothers, mothers-to-be, and mothers to those that were taken from this world too soon.
