Being a Mom is my life long dream.
Now that it’s so close to fulfillment, I still couldn’t consider myself to be 100% qualified for the job. I just haven’t figured it out yet. Was there anyone ever prepared for this?
At 36 weeks, I’m looking forward to that, maybe final, ultrasound the OB-GYN has requested, and I was very determined to ask for the view of our son’s face even if it’s not part of the doctor’s request. Then it happened, we got so lucky – blessed rather – that the OB-GYN Sonologist on duty granted our request with a “free” 4D view of his lovely face!
My heart melted when I saw those chubby cheeks, that cute little nose,
and those sleeping eyes yet to open up!!!

Little did I know that a famous architect’s dictum I followed when I was young now speaks to my dialogues to our dear Father.
“It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth.
Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants,
with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
We’ll be handed with our own tiny seed very soon. We’re not completely sure if our garden is ready, but we are always, always asking for guidance to enable us to become gardeners worthy of a fruitful tree.
This year is for Selfless Discoveries.
I never considered myself as a volunteer-type, never ever comfortable to be the first person to raise my hand when someone asks for help, unless personally approached. I’d always take time to test the waters before jumping in.
This 2018 will be very different.
Hot or cold, stepping back is not an option.
You Only Live Once
The famous mantra most of the young generation believe in is true. Best moments shared with family, friends, and significant people only comes in a spark of time. Your memory catches some specks only your physical mind can contain.
