It has been a long time since I have posted, but I have the very best of excuses. I have spent the last six months enthralled with my baby girl. Lily is a wonderful baby, happy almost all the time, with the cutest dimples you have ever seen. To be honest, she is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen, though you might just think I’m biased.
I am so thrilled to finally be a mother. After I was married, it was as if my life before marriage faded away, and my married life was the beginning of my real life. Now, after having a baby, I have a similar feeling. The life that I had before she was born was wonderful, but I feel alive in a new way now.
If I can ask one thing of my readers, please do not believe the lie that women need to become more like men in order to be a success. Women are more powerful in being women – creating life inside our bodies, and nurturing life once it is born, shaping the future of humanity with loving hearts and service – than we are in becoming power-suit CEOs. I support and desire women to be CEOs and anything else they are gifted to do, but I have discovered something wonderful. God gave women a gift in being mothers, and motherhood needs to receive more respect. It is truly a blessing to be a mother, and no one should disparage that. So please, don’t buy the lie that any child is an inconvenience to be aborted.
I am just so thrilled to watch Lily grow and develop each day. Most recently, she has started sitting and eating food. What a cutey.
