The making of a Mama

Life is so unexpected. We never know who will show up, when. We may have an idea or desire of how we want things to go but life ... life often has other plans. Today I bow to the unknown, I surrender to the path - and life - my soul chose. There are no mistakes. There are no coincidences. There are only miracles. Four years ago I was told I might never be a mama. Today I am a mama in the making.

The past three months have been some of the most challenging yet empowering moments of my life and I wouldn't change any of it.  To be carrying a miracle in my womb is truly life's greatest gift to me. I am constantly in awe. My first trimester was nothing close to easy, I have yet to spot that glow I've heard so much about ... I'm still holding out ;) But wow, have I never been so in awe of my body and of this magical and mysterious ride we call life. This little soul will arrive in July and I'm humbled he/she chose me as it's mama ... what a blessing I'll be sharing more about my pregnancy journey in the coming weeks and months ... in the meantime, I have never felt more in reverence of women, of mothers everywhere, myself included and I can't wait to see where this path of mommyhood takes me ...
