Have you ever been stunned at something you became. Perhaps you know you would have a certain title soon but didn’t really know what it would feel like. I was given one of the most important titles back in 1987. That title?
– Mother –
If you know my story, if you’ve read my past postings, then you know it was a tough time when I found out, at 19 years old, I was pregnant. I often say it was one major soap-opera. My last post shows how I was feeling 24 hours after getting ‘Mother’ as my new title.
Being I’ve shared bits and pieces here of things I endured during those life-changing nine months, I can’t help but mention a few things I had learned. I, along with many others who have endured an unplanned pregnancy, admit there are a few rather important aspects of life that were learned.
1- Don’t put what you think is right above what God knows is right.
2- Never trust yourself 100% in all of your decisions.
3- You’ll realize God shows His children He truly cares.
4- You begin seeing your own parents differently.
5 – You’ll begin seeing a lot of people differently.
6- You learn to appreciate those who love and support you.
7- You realize you had a bit too much pride in yourself before.
8 – You see a new you taking root, not only in your tummy, but in your heart.
9 – You look differently at your spare time knowing you’ll soon be caring for a baby.
10 -Looking at your baby for the very first time, and as those first 24 hours go by, you just might realize how a baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty.
Life comes a full circle when you see for yourself, a new life that you made.
