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?
“God is in the details.”
– Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
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.
There are a lot of reasons to throw a party.
Look around, appreciate what life has for you.
The past year was a tough one because I left myself alone. Yes, I left myself. It was hard to pick myself up from all the challenges that weakened me, self doubt had dwelled on for so long that a few still remained until now. Yet life has its way of telling you enough, how?
