Today is Monday, which means it’s time for the Inspirational song of the week.
(click the link above to go to YouTube to hear it)
I loved being pregnant! Really loved it!! Although I had to quit smoking (a pack a day) I decided to start walking and have continued to do so every since.
I remember taking walks through the mall where I worked, fantasizing about what he would look like and the sound of his voice.
I’d walk every day, feeling him grow bigger inside me, until I’d gained 50 lbs. (This picture was taken the morning we went to the hospital)
I was so excited to be his Mom, that when the day finally came to have him, I pretty much just cried the whole time! Good, happy tears, because the pain, although intense, didn’t last.
That’s where the magic of life comes in.
The anticipation of his arrival, compounded with the sheer ecstasy of finally meeting him, wiped my memory clean of the physical pain of childbirth. (I’m not saying it didn’t hurt, I’m just saying he was totally worth it.)
My son turned 10 years old yesterday. I pulled up this song on YouTube to share with him. I told him I used to sing it to him while he was still in my tummy and how I dreamed about how beautiful he would be and how lucky I was to be his Mom.
Awwwwwe!!! We are so very blessed!
I hope, my friendly blog reader, that this song reminds you of someone you are in love with. Everyone needs someone who makes their heart sing.
I’ll be back on Wednesday with the Inspirational word of the week.
