“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.” —Gail Tsukiyama
Today is a very special day for me because three years ago I was delivered to the hospital to give birth to the most amazing, little boy. I will never forget this day. My son was not due until October 7th, 2011 but when my husband and I went to our routine check-up on September 15, the nurse noticed that my stomach seemed smaller so, we did an ultrasound to see what was going on. Well, comes out that my water was very low (note – I was not aware of any water breaking). Anyhow, the nurse informed us that I would have to give birth ASAP – hence I was delivered to the hospital to give birth three weeks early. I was induced but did not give birth until September 16, 2011 at 9:59 PM, and truly I tell you: The moment I laid eyes on my son was the most beautiful feeling in my life ever. Here he was – my beloved, little son. Tears of joy came rolling down my face; I knew my life was going to change forever. Never have I experienced love like this…, and I am so grateful for my husband who’s unity with me made it possible to become a family.
So, this post is about L O V E, as well as a big T H A N K Y O U note to my family. Without them I would not be the person I am today.
As always, thank you for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
