Not so long ago, my husband and I were blessed with 3 little girls (not all of them at once *L*, thank goodness). It feels like yesterday when I had a little miracle growing in my tummy those first fluttering of the kicks, the little hiccups, the first sound of the little heart beating in the doctors rooms.
Pregnancy is the privilege of experiencing God’s miracles on earth. Sometimes it feels like you have aching muscles in places you never knew muscles even exist, and sometimes it feels like the 9 months are taking forever. You cry about an add on TV about washing powder, because you know that the next time you wash your jeans you wont be able to fit into them. These experiences are all given to you to cherish forever, besides the aching muscles, the sleepless nights, the getting up 10 times during the night because you are thirsty and another 10 times to just make it in time to get rid of all the water you had
The gift you are about to receive will last a lifetime, the first cry, the first smile, the first laughter. The first step, and then the endless kisses, everyday, everynight. The precious moments, when they tell you, you are the most beautiful in the world, and when you say I love you….and then the words I LOVE YOU MORE in return. Children are God’s little miracles to us, they keep us humble, and they show us what life is really about.
