My Mother-In-Law recently admitted that she wasn’t sure what type of mother I might be or how I would embrace the roll.
As an only child from a small family, she doubted my experience or lack there of.
Not to say: she thought I’d be a bad mother, but more to say: she was pleasantly surprised to see the mother that emerged.
The truth is, that while I can understand where she might have doubt, I never once did.
I think most new first time mothers might tell you that they often feel flooded with doubts.
And where others might drown, I found myself in a carefree backstroke or water aerobics display.
In a joyful expression of dance.
Motherhood has always been my destiny.
I’ve known, from a young age, that in truth, I would never feel complete or completely find myself until I fulfilled that destiny.
And so I plunge.
Deep into the unknown- yet strangely familiar- warm, calming waters of motherhood.
Because together we are invincible.
Destined for greatness.
