Many thoughts have crossed my mind about being a mother. You would think after all those years of babysitting and taking care of my nieces and nephews would prepare me for this. I have not even held my daughter in my arms yet and I am already understanding the concept that mothers always say "You'll never know or understand until you have one of your own." I sometimes don't feel at all ready for this. But I know it's in God's perfect will and His perfect season. I know He's got a plan for this little girl. There has been many times during this pregnancy when I just didn't feel ready, didn't feel prepared. I just didn't feel qualified. But once again The Lord speaks to my heart with the perfect answer. "The called never come qualified, But I always qualify the called" I know on my own I am not and will never be qualified. But through Jesus. My Heavenly Father, The Great I am. I am qualified through Him and His perfect love for me.I know through Him I can do all things. And raising this Miracle will be for His glory alone!
Preparation for Labor:
Thanks to my dear blog friend Heather from findingbeautyintheordinary I have been inspired in many ways when it comes to being prepared, and being a mother in general. Things she has learned before me because shes a few months ahead of the game since she had her precious daughter back in August. So, because of her posts I am fully prepared and packed for the medical center. She inspired the idea to make the doctors and nurses a goodie basket. I loved this idea because it shows your appreciation to them and I really want my Midwives to know they are appreciated. So, this is my gift basket to them.
And I'm making sure to pack snacks and stuff too! We'll only be there for about four hours after we have her because I'm having her at a medical center but I wanted to make sure I was prepared!
Come on baby girl, Momma's waiting for you!
