A letter from a mom-to-be to her little angel

This was written by a dear friend who will soon become a mother. Pregnancy is one very special moment in every woman’s life. Even if I’m yet to be one, I know it brings unfathomable joy. But it also comes with mixed emotions especially for those who are bearing a child for the first time. I hope this letter will bring inspiration to other mothers-to-be.

Dear my little angel,

How are you inside mommy’s womb? I hope you are doing ok as you develop and grow each and every single day. What you are going through is not easy. Mommy knows that for she is having a hard time too. But don’t worry, mommy has stopped complaining by the time she started hearing your heartbeat. She already embraced the pain and discomfort she might possibly feel while she carries you. Worry and stress has been replaced with excitement and joy.

One time she was so sick she can barely move or stand, all she did is to think of you, wondered how you would be look like. Will you have your daddy’s eyes? or mommy’s smile? She even wondered about the sound of your voice when you cry or when you laugh. And everytime she thinks of all those things she would suddenly feel better. You always make mommy feel better. Just the thought of you my little angel.

Mommy will do anything for you. In fact, she always make sure she takes her medicines on time just for you to be healthy and strong, even if it’s hard for her to swallow them. She already have your name even before you really exist. She already got an idea how to make your room up for your comfort. She wanted to buy things for you like clothes and toys as early as possible. She just don’t know where and how to start. Mommy is just so excited to see you, and daddy too.

Mommy used to be so concious about her body. She doesn’t want to grow big or fat. The thought really scares her so much. But when you came to be the reason of that changes, she embraced it without fear. All because of you baby. Everything is because of you. You are the center of her attention now–her world, her inspiration, her everything.

Though you won’t be able to read this. Maybe you will after how many years. Mommy just want you to know that she loves you very much. The love she has for you is beyond measure, beyond doubt. The kind of love she has for your daddy too.

Be strong there my little angel. We will see each other soon. Mommy can’t wait for that moment to happen.


Always,
Mom

New year’s resolution

More often than not, with new year comes new year’s resolution. People would vow to start doing or not doing the list of things they swear to resolve after the clock strikes 12 midnight on the 1st of January. Well, I am not an exemption.

However, mine was done a bit earlier. I believe in the statement of Stephen Covey in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People which refers to habits being associated with the pull of gravity wherein the more you go against it, the harder it becomes.

Hence, so as not to make my new years resolution a torture rather than a positive change of lifestyle, I started reorganizing my thoughts and way of life as early as December. I deserve a pat on the back from my own self for making it little by little (laugh out loud).

Now I’m ready to kick off the year with less pressure being able to keep myself on track with what I wanted to change. Indeed, it is never easy to make a drastic change but we can make it easier if we do it by heart and by not being too hard on ourselves. After all, it’s not how we started but how we made it to the end that matters.

A prosperous 2012 to everyone!
