The New Gig

I was put on this planet to be a Mom.

There I've said it.

I now realize my sole purpose is to raise this wee one the best I know how, and to love my husband with every ounce of my being along the way.

From those tiny hands, I have learned to hone patience and to practice positivity. I see how my actions prior to Motherhood demonstrated a woman eager to please everyone else, whilst ignoring the passions and desires of her heart. My tongue was quick to respond, and unfortunately, those responses were too often full of meanness and swill. The moment I became a Mom, I awoke to a world much different than I had seen before. Suddenly, I wanted so badly to protect my little one from the harshness of the world, to raise him in patience and love, to show him how a Godly married couple should talk to one another.

My own insecurities seemed to fade away as I found confidence in my ability to provide for my son. When faced with the challenge of keeping a newborn alive, suddenly those tiny insecurities you clutched so tightly to, come unraveled and fall away.

I've got a new boss man to answer to.

Sure he is demanding at times, but that is small potatoes compared to the pay-off I get in the end.

I was put on this planet to be a mom. I'm sure glad I got the job.
