Blog 16: I never knew I needed him so much!
Bath night, what does that mean to you?
The other night, as I was giving Henry his nightly bath, I sat for awhile and thought back. I thought back almost seven, eight years ago, when I used to sit at my sisters house watching them give their twins a bath. I used to think back then, “wow, what a joy, I can’t wait to experience this with my child.” Little did I know back then, the struggle I would endure to get to that point.
So I sat there, with Henry playing in his infant bath and me leaning over the tub, just how lucky I am. I am lucky that I had faith. I am lucky kept believing. I am lucky for the friends that I had and have that prayed. I am lucky that God believed in me and gave me a son.
But what I didn’t know, is just how much I needed Henry. I needed Henry to make me see life from a different perspective. I needed Henry to make me judge people less, to be more compassionate, to put others before me, and most of all I needed Henry to make my life COMPLETE!
I started this blog last year by beginning with “ I have always dreamed of finding my soulmate, falling in love, getting married and having a family living happily ever after."
Well the one missing piece to that was a child. I had already found my soulmate, we were married and we were trying to create a family......Now we have that family, and my life is complete. We can now watch Henry grow together as I will continue this blog to help others going through the same troubles. I will continue this blog to show all of you what your prayers created, and I will continue this blog to be as open and honest as I can possibly be!
