My sister sent me this video back in March and I watched it and got all teary eyed thinking about becoming a mom. I saved it and am so glad I did, although this time it produced not just teary eyes but a full streams of tears.
Lately I have been overcome with so many emotions as our due date gets closer. I am beyond excited to meet our baby girl and can't even wait to hold her and start our life as a family of three.
But I am also scared. Scared of labor, of her being born healthy. Scared of not knowing what we are doing and the responsibility of taking care of this tiny baby. Scared that I already love her so much and I haven't even met her. It scares me to think of how much more I'll love her when she's here, which makes me scared to think of anything ever happening to her.
This video was such a great reminder that I am far from alone. A reminder to just breathe and take it day by day. A reminder that it's okay to be scared and to not know what to expect. I also remind myself that God loves our baby girl more than I do and is always in control.
