For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him.
1 Samuel 1:27
Today is my eldest's birthday! Seventeen, to be exact. I do not know how that's possible...seems like yesterday we were rushing to the hospital (I had a 2 hour labor. Don't hate me :) Time has flown.
I will never take motherhood for granted. It took three years and as many doctors to get me there. It was a heartwrenching journey of many tests and eventually surgery to fix what was standing in the way.
And I will never forget how utterly overwhelmed with love I was when he got here...and the feeling I had when I realized that as endless and deep my love for him was (and is!), that God loves me even more than that...I'm His child.
Happy Birthday! Being your mom is the best gift I've ever had. ♡
