A Mommy Moment
Last night as I was thinking about this day and among the details I was also wondering what I should wear. For some reason I instantly recalled how I had on a pink blouse at my baby shower when I was pregnant with her. We chose not to find out if she was going to be a boy or a girl but deep down inside I had a feeling she was a girl. I thought it would be fitting to wear pink again today. You see I picked pink at my baby shower becasue I felt in heart she was going to be a girl (although I never told anyone I felt this). Baby showers are a celebration that very soon a baby will be born and it will mark the beginning of a new life with lots of changes and experiences. This bridal shower has the same meaning. This is a celebration that in a few short weeks it will be the beginning of a new life and lots of changes for my (grown up) baby now.
This moment is truly God answering a mother’s prayer. I am in the moment right now and I love you Lauren Elizabeth and thank you for allowing me to be such a part of your life. I know with all my heart that Stephen is the man God purposed just for you. I am so glad you found each other. I will always treasure that God gave me a small glimpse of what was to come after you both met face to face for the first time....I knew then when he texted you and said he was still nervous. I looked at you and said, "It’s because he knows you are the one"...and then you looked at me and said "MOM! We just met!” I smiled and laughed but deep in my heart I just knew!
I celebrate this Mommy Moment with all of the other mothers who have prayed and watched their children grow up and leave the nest of "home" to make a new nest of "home" starting a new beginning with their beloved.
