At 40 years old, I thought I will never be a mom. We had been married 15 years and I had never been pregnant. I wanted to be a mom, but I was also open to not being one, if that’s the path God is leading me to. But then, just a few weeks after my 40th birthday, we confirmed my pregnancy. Shortly after that, we found out we were having twins!
Being a mom of two beautiful girls at 40, and after 15 years of wedded bliss, is perhaps one of my life’s biggest miracles. It is an experience made possible only through the GRACE of our God. From the time I found out we were expecting, to now that I get to enjoy my babies, I feel nothing but gratitude to our God, the author of life.
This section of my blog is a way for me to celebrate my motherhood and remember the moments that make this journey an adventure of a lifetime. I know I will make mistakes. There will be days when I will likely second guess myself – been doing that a lot lately. I will be hurt and frustrated. I will have doubts and fears – I’ve had them since I found out about my pregnancy! But I also know that they are nothing compared to the joy and amazement I feel as I watch my babies grow. I cannot wait to see what this journey awaits me!
