Four years ago today I looked down at this precious angel in my arms and felt a surge of love like none I had ever experienced before. I had fought so hard to bring that baby into the world and finally, after 38 long hours, he was here. I had never understood love like I did in that moment. It was then, that I became a mother.
It’s hard to believe that was really four years ago. I remember thinking that I could never love him more than I did in that moment; but I was wrong. My love for him has grown in ways I never thought possible. It started with those little eyes looking up at me in the delivery room and has grown with every giggle, every hug, every kiss. That little boy is my world. I cannot imagine a life without him.
As a mother I’ve had to make sacrifices, as a single mother I’ve had to make even more, but every single one of those sacrifices has been worth it because they were for him. It hasn’t been an easy road, there have been days when I’ve wanted to rip my hair out, but it is moments like this that make it all worth it. The time is going by so quickly, the years are passing by. Every time I blink he’s grown a little more. I would do anything to be able to slow things down, to be able to sit and enjoy his little personality for a little longer, but time is fighting against me. I am so thankful for this little boy and the memories we are making together. Being a mother is the greatest gift in the world. I am so honored to be his. Happy Birthday Little Bug! I love you more than you will ever know.
