From This Moment On

On this day five years ago my life changed forever. My day started with pleading with doctors, longing for food and drink and breathing. Lots and lots of breathing. Then, sometime around 11AM a mad rush of people came into the room, someone threw my legs into stirrups and told me to do something I never, ever thought I was physically capable of doing. Push another human being out of my body!

And for 45 minutes I huffed and puffed and sucked on an oxygen mask. And soon enough my first born baby boy came into the world.

I would love to say that at that very moment there was joy and jubilation, but sadly there was silence and uncertainty instead. And in that most wonderful, life changing moment my world spun out of control.

But by the grace of God that day turned out to be one of the best days of my life. And because of His amazing ability to heal and restore, my baby boy grew strong and fast and wonderfully perfect. I thank God for him every day.

5 years ago God gave me a gift that I can never thank Him for enough. My little boy has changed my life, he's made me a better person and he brings me more joy and love than I ever thought possible.

Happy Birthday Kiddo! Momma loves you more than you'll ever know!
Until,
D :)
