My Little One-Year-Old

Well now I am the mother of a 1 year old. It's been a pretty fun adventure so far. Especially when, frankly, I wasn't sure I'd enjoy it. But looking back over the past year there's so many more smiles, laughter, and joy than two people can make.

I'm so grateful for the chance to be a mother, I know it's not a position to be taken lightly.

A little over a year ago I was a different person. I was more selfish, more judgmental, and had less compassion. Then when I had a baby and realized I couldn't even shower whenever I wanted, I started to change a little. I stopped judging people who's babies cried in the supermarket. And I shed a tear or two whenever I hear of a mother losing their child. I'm not perfect by any means, but I'm grateful to a Heavenly Father who loaned me this gift so I could learn a little.
