Your journey begins
You are walking the road into unknown territory
Motherhood is a mystery
Of varying emotions suspended in the same second
No one can fully prepare you for it...
So, Brace yourself!!
The road is long and winding
Scattered with spectacular views of stunning mountaintops and beautiful hills, yet dotted about with deep dark valleys
Choose the right Guide for this lifelong journey
Hold tightly to God’s hand as you walk through the numerous doors
that motherhood will surely bring your way
The doors of...
Courage and Fear
Strength and Weakness
Sanity and Insanity
Laughter and Joy
Light and Shadows
Sorrow and Tears
Contentment and Resentment
Pride and Shame
Guilt and Perseverance
The life that has come through you is a blank page
Fill it up. Don’t hold back!
Shower your child with love. Don’t hold it in!
Let the pages of your baby’s life be filled with moments of wonder and appreciation.
Write into it –
Forgiveness and Grace
Allow your friends to share in the writing of this mini book of life –
Use them to dot the i’s and cross the t’s.
Let your family contribute their own special marks, stamps and stickers on the blank pages.
Teach and train your child to embrace all the blessings of living in the light
Experience life in all its fullness with this little being
Then send him or her off to light up the world!
Give yourself lots of room to make mistakes and learn from them.
In time you’ll see that there is Beauty in the Mystery.
You will understand through contemplation and frustration
that this robust journey is a gift to better you.
And you’ll see that your blank pages too are being coloured with heart warming pictures, heart stopping words and heart trusting life lessons.
