Sitting here for the past 2 hours I realized that I haven't blogged in what feels like ages. I've been reflecting on the past few months since we brought Alec home and how many changes our little boy has already made, but not only has my sweet little stinker changed but so have I. Honestly when I first got pregnant last March I never really knew if I was going to be cut out for motherhood or how anything was going to be. There's no book that can prepare you for being a mother, its really a learned instinct that we're all born with, it starts the first moment you read that pregnancy test or the first time you see your little peanut on the screen. It immediately deepens the first moment that your child is placed on your chest and you can see his/her sweet round face looking back at you and you see what exactly God has given you and blessed you with. I've been doing a lot of reflection and seeing how great of a mother I am to my little boy, the sacrifices that I make and the things I do just because I am a mother now. My thinkings changed, I'm not just a teenager anymore, I have another life to think for and to put first before myself in everyday life. I find it VERY humbling to call myself a mommy and to know that someone needs me at every moment of every day.
"Maybe our mistakes are what makes our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, or be who we are. After all seasons change. So do cities. People come in our lives and people go. But it's comforting...the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're lucky, always will be."-Miranda Brogdon
