Yes, I decided to start a blog. I am not too sure that I have anything remotely interesting to share, but I thought I would give it a go. Today is like any other day, so why now? Although I cannot answer this, I am excited to get started.
As you can see in my profile, I am a fairly new Mom. Elia, who has stolen my heart, is just under 15 months. I'm sure, as most Moms would agree, it is amazing to partake in the world of Motherhood. I was always a vocal person about not wanting to be a Mom too soon, not feeling confident I could be a "good" and loving Mom, and not sure I was ready. The best thing happened, though, when by surprise I found out I was pregnant. Wow how my world was flipped upside down.
It was my last semester of nursing school, with final projects to attend to and the search for the "perfect" job as my primary focus. I can say the farthest thing from my mind was starting a family. Although my husband and I had been married just under 2 years, I really wanted to get my nursing career started before bringing children into the world. It was early April when my Dr. confirmed that, "yes" I was indeed pregnant. Although I had my own plans, God had even greater plans for us, the best gift we could have ever imagined, even if at the time I was hesitant. Oh yes, I cried when pregnancy test after pregnancy test they were all positive. How could this happen to me now? How would I start my nursing career and leave after 6 months to have a baby?
Elia calls...I will be back later!
