Happy Mother's Day !!!
Pregnancy has never been easy for me. It took me several years to get pregnant the first time and 4 more years after my first daughter to get pregnant again. I almost had lost all hope and was getting used to the idea of having just one child. Then this miracle happened and here I am, pregnant again. The news came and I was in shock. I had lost almost all hope and I wasn't expecting to be expecting! Then came the problems and the bed rest. Finally the day of the appointment arrived and the bad news came again: 3 more weeks of bed rest.
Sometimes I think I'm going crazy here. But life sometimes send us signals to make us reflect again on the things that are happening to us and see them differently. Just outside my house there's a tree and in the tree there's a nest. In the nest there's a mom bird and she's laying on her eggs. She's there, day and night, rain or sunshine, just waiting, doing what she must. Unlike me, she doesn't complain for being there, for not being able to fly. She's doing it for a bigger, more beautiful purpose and that is bringing new life to this world. I feel obliged to follow her steps. Sometimes your life has to be on hold while bigger things are happening and you have to wait and be patient. Maybe that's the lesson that life is trying to teach me: to be patient. After all, it's one of the things that you will need the most when you're a mom.
I hope you have a wonderful, blessed day! My best who all the mothers out who always give the best of them for the ones they love. Many hugs and blessings!
