One year ago today, I became a mom, again. I always get teary whenever I recall what happened in the emergency room last year. I still cry when I reread what I wrote for Benjamin’s birth story. But I promised myself to leave it all behind the doors of 2011. So, I move on.
And I have a pretty good reason to move on – I got my happy ending (despite that horrible experience). I got my precious baby boy and today as I look into his eyes, I am filled with so much gratefulness to be blessed again, to receive the gift and the privilege to become a mom again. The one role in life I wouldn’t trade for anything. The one ‘job’ I can proudly say, I will commit to giving my one hundred percent no matter what. I can suck at all other things but not being a mom is a promise I gave to myself. A promise I enjoy fulfilling.
Before I get all melodramatic…
Today is not only an important milestone for baby Ben. It’s a celebration of a wonderful year filled with so much immeasurable joy he has brought to our lives.
Happy, happy birthday my baby boy.
