It’s been close to two years now that I was blessed with my two precious gifts. My life has changed drastically after that. And now when I think of my cherished possession like many other mom’s I cannot think anything other than my kids, my twin boys who made me a complete person just by being a part of my life.
I adore them so much even today- just like the very first day when I saw them, touched those tiny fingers, felt the softness of those small feet on my face. Those beautiful eyes exact replica of mine, that smooth and supple skin and that adorable smile. How I still remember that first sound of ‘Mamma’ in my ears. It’s close to two years but everything is so fresh.
Life is hard, but when you become a mother you realize how things can get even tougher. Motherhood is exhausting and at times it can be frustrating too. When you are so tired that you’re not sure which end of the baby is the head, all you want is little sleep but sleep becomes a past dream and you become a zombie in the process. With all extra work, dirty diapers, that crying of baby which one can still hear in sleep. Life become hard and for once you thank your mom for all the hard work she did to make you a responsible adult.
In the midst of the day-to-day tasks of motherhood many times I find myself lost without any clear vision about life. I take my eyes off those blessings and look at the chaos, the mess that my life has become. But when those tiny hands hold my fingers and take me with them, I look at their faces and thank God for my priceless treasure.
It can be easy to find yourself lost and discouraged in the early days of life with a newborn. But motherhood is more than those sleepless nights, dirty diapers and all those responsibilities, it is about unconditional love that you feel after seeing that smiling face in your hand.
Motherhood is one of God’s greatest blessings, and I feel so overwhelmed every time I see those two boys running around me, screaming ‘mama’ in their sharp pitch (again my replicas), and I ask myself, “Is this true”? It still feels so much like a dream. Love my precious gifts you both are indeed my “Cherished Possessions”.
A miracle is really the only way to describe motherhood and giving birth. It’s unbelievable how God has made us women and babies to endure and be able to do so much. A miracle, indeed. Such an incredible blessing. – Jennie Finch
