A Celebration of Life

Life is precious. It is beautiful and what better way to celebrate life than with a party.

Last Saturday, my sisters organized a shower for me, in celebration of our coming baby boy.  Hubby and I were overwhelmed by the warmth and love that surrounded us.  In the company of family and friends, we rejoiced in  the presence of this little one in me.  We pray that all will be well and sometime in November, we’ll be holding a healthy, happy and normal baby boy in our arms.

Like any mother to be, I have moments when my mind is riddled with doubts and my heart is filled with fears.  I worry that I may not know how to be a good mother.  I haven’t even changed a baby’s diaper! We’ve been without small babies in the family and it doesn’t help that we’re isolated from our other relatives (Yup, my parents  moved away from the rest of their siblings for work and found home in Bacolod.)  =) I know that books will only get you so far and it’s the actual experience that’s necessary.

That said, I know  that I have hubby (who’s a nurse), my two sisters and brother in law (a nurse, an OB res and a pedia, respectively), my mom and parents-in-law to help me embrace motherhood.  More importantly, I have the Lord guiding me through this journey.  I cast all my cares upon You Lord. Quiet my heart and grant me the grace to have faith in your wisdom. Amen.

p.s. Just some pictures from the party.
