Well, first of all, this post is 2 years and 5 months late. My daughter Rethabile was born in May 2015.
Nothing could have prepared me for what has been this past 2 years of my life. My heart made room for the bundle of joy as soon as I found out I was pregnant. My soul has been accompanied since she was conceived. Since she was born, I have grown and matured in areas of my life that I honestly didn’t think still needed to. It has been amazing. I have always loved kids, I have always planned on having 3 of my own though that number has now been changed to 2.
I have seen growth and maturity and much more understanding between myself, my mom and my older sister. I guess the fact that we are now all mothers makes our bond that much stronger. Our unique experiences make us that much more compassionate, sensitive and direct with one another. My sister and I have always been besties such that I inherited her other besties and her mine but I must say that motherhood has brought us even closer and has introduced a whole new dimension into that sisterhood.
One thing that has come out shining for me from this experience is something that I have always believed in, that women need one another. We need all the love, support and understanding we can get. My journey certainly could have not been the same without a string of women that have been a strong force behind me since day 1. Some of them mothers and some not but they all had one thing in common, a heart of gold.
As for my husband and I, having a child, though it was unplanned has brought us even closer. I now understand what they mean when they say that putting your kids first means putting each other first (Topic for another day!) We definitely have become a stronger force of Love with God the center!
Till next time…
Mommy-ing in the city!
