Let’s take it back to 1997, where my journey into motherhood began, shall we? I was scared to death, just thinking about what labor would be like. After 8 hours, and on her actual due date, Kamren Danae came full force into the world. Wow! That was 21 years ago! Am I that old??
John 16:21 21 When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
From the day I brought her home, she was the perfect baby. She slept all night. She only cried when she was either wet or hungry. She walked at nine months, pretty much potty trained herself at eighteen months, and was speaking full sentences by twenty months. The girl had it going on. She made being her mother a walk in the park. She was such an easy child, that I thought, “Hmm, I can do this again. Especially if it it is going to be this easy.” Boy! Was I wrong? Number two was the absolute polar opposite!
As she got older, it wasn’t always a cake walk, but we made it through. Kamren is on her way to great things. It appears that she has a good plan in place for her future endeavors, and Daddy and I wish her the best. Our mission in life has always been to raise successful christian adults, and prayerfully, they are all well on their way. I am expecting great things from this child of mine, and will be praying her along the way.
3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
Even though she is officially a “Grown-Up”, she will always be MY baby, and she knows that. You don’t stop being a Mama, simply because your kids grow up. Your Mama heart still beats for them, (even if there is a gang of them) and you are laying in wait most days to ensure that they are alright at the end of each day. I know most of you can relate. Well that’s all for now. I have checked in on everybody, and all is good in the White House.
