I think I have dreamed of being a mother my entire life. As a little girl, I would play house with my baby dolls for hours upon hours. As a teenager, I loved to be around anyone who had just had a baby; I simply loved them! As soon as I was old enough to baby sit, I babysat anyone and every child in my church. My youth pastor lived down the street and it is amazing they didn’t get sick of me. Even when I wasn’t watching their precious daughter, I practically lived at their house just so I could play with her; I adored children!
I feel like I have been a mother for most of my life. My daughter made me grow up, allowed me to grow up, and has taught me how to be a mother. Although nineteen is not the age I would recommend anyone starting motherhood, it definitely matured me much faster than most people my age. While most of my friends were still in school, I was learning to breastfeed, change diapers, and quiet a fussy baby.
I look back now at my first years of motherhood and I can’t believe how far I have come. I can see all of the mistakes I have made and the things I wish I had done different, but I wonder if it really matters.
Being a mother is the hardest and yet most rewarding job I have ever had. I want them to have more than I have ever had. I want to shield them from all hurt and pain, and yet I have already watched the tears stream from their face as I told them their sister had gone to Heaven.
I can’t protect them from the pain of this World, but I can teach them that we are a FAMILY, and family loves each other no matter what we go through in life.
The Greatest Gift GOD has ever given me has been the gift of MOTHERHOOD, I don’t deserve His blessings, but I am honored He loves me and choose me to be the mother of Four AMAZING children. I love you FOREVER:
