...Why is the 4th of January Important To Me?
I am glad you asked!
Long ago on the 4th of January, I was exhausted from having 72 hours of HARD labour! I kid you not!
Then finally, I became a Mom for the first time. A beautiful girl was born onto me. My life had changed forever on the day of her birth. I fell in love! I held her firmly with my love.
Even now, many years later I still have tears of joy.
I did not know then what life would be like for me as her Mom. I loved her and taught her my best to love God. I prayed for her back then for her future husband. I prayed for strength and patience for me. I watched that sweet baby girl grow and transformed before my very eyes!
I was inadequate and helpless to raise her without God. He sustained me and guided me as this little girl's mother. She, herself has become a wonderful mother with two little girls of her own.
Now I see her as I was so long ago, a young mother of two beautiful girls. There are no words for the amount of pride that I have for this beautiful woman who once was my little baby.
I look at you today and it takes my breath away for you have become an amazing woman. I could not be more prouder of you than I am now. It was and is still is worth being your Mom. I dare say that you are becoming one of my favorite friend! I know that there are miles between us now but our hearts will always be together in spite of that! I look forward to your continuing maturity!
Your Mom Forever!
P.S. Lord, I am truly blessed!
