If you have a child, I am guessing you can vividly recall the moment you became a mother. Whether it is a memory clouded with the hazy fog of anesthesia; a moment of pure bliss as you arrived at the nirvana of holding your baby after an exhaustive labor and delivery; or a moment profound joy when you received the call that you would become an adoptive parent — these are some of the memories that remain fresh in our minds, forever.
I am a mother to three children here on earth and another watching over us from the heavens. While each of the births of my children were vastly different, and none went according to plan, all three were incredible in their own rite as they delivered another new life to the earth; a life that I have the privilege of nurturing.
Along with the recollection of relief and intense, other-worldly love that fills our hearts upon first embracing our children, parents might remember experiencing a wide range of flooding emotions. Overwhelm, elation, and gratitude are just a few that describe my experience.
Today at Little & Mighty we are sharing the first emotions we felt upon becoming mothers.
How did you feel as you held your child in your arms for the first time? I do hope you’ll come join us over at Little & Mighty for Mighty Mamas Monday and share your experience!
