"God will never lead you to it,
if he can't get you through it."
It's officially getting real y'all... I'm going to be a mother soon. More than just a fur-mom. I'm going to be responsible for a living breathing real life human...
Pause for effect. Let's let that sink in.
I'd be lying if I sat here and said I'm not scared or nervous. Let's be frank. I'm terrified. Terrified of labor and giving birth. Terrified of learning the ropes of this huge responsibility. Terrified to raise a child, not to mention a girl. Terrified of how drastically (and potentially quickly) my life is going to change.
My one bit of strength? My support group. I may be the only one able to deliver this little bit to the real world... but I get to learn the parenthood ropes with my husband. So far he's had it relatively easy... but once she is here... it's on. I couldn't ask for a better partner to tackle this next step in our life with. With him, I am blessed to have parents that are excited for this adventure. Excited to help in any way they can as we transition into this new world. Finally, I am blessed with countless family members and friends who have checked in on me and share our enthusiasm for this little person about to make her appearance.
I know I am blessed to even have this opportunity. I know I am strong enough to get through it... but the fear of the unknown has been on my mind so much lately. Uncharted territory gives me the jitters... and all I can say is... the definition of uncharted territory doesn't even being to describe this next life change.
