All is Well Here

September 14th, 2008 Posted in gratitude, received

It has been a while since I last updated my gratitude blog. Time flies when you’re busy hugging and kissing an infant child. She is absolutely amazing. It is much too obvious to say that I am so very grateful for her, but there it is.

It is amazing how much our lives have changed since we’ve brought her into our world. One of my friends had told me when I was pregnant that when she is born, there will be moments where I will be so proud to be her mother, so proud to have her in my life, so grateful that she is mine, and that I am hers. I had told her at the time, “I’m already proud and I haven’t even seen her yet!”

This is nothing like I thought it would be. It is like a thousand times more beautiful, more sacred, more wonderful. Being a mother is so wonderful. I’ll take a thousand poopy diapers any day to ensure her happiness, her safety, her good health for the rest of her life. I’ll do anything for her. This unconditional love is like no other. There’s no darn thing she can do — ever — to make me love her any less, let alone stop loving her.

The feeling is amazing. I even miss her when I’m asleep. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night just to tiptoe to where she is sleeping and look at her, listen to her soft breathing (and sometimes loud breathing and grunts and squeaks.. hehe), and all is well with the world. We can be at war, and still all is well with the world. We can have to apply for mortgage life insurance over and over again and still, all is well with the world. As long as she’s alive and safe and happy, all will always be well with the world.
