Every time I stand in front of the mirror, I can't help but stare in wonder at my ever-growing belly, knowing that a life is being created inside of me. This morning as I gazed at my "bump" I unexpectedly started crying, thinking that in just a few (hopefully short) weeks I will get to meet our daughter. I was overwhelmed with emotion in anticipation of the day I get to hold her and experience the unconditional love that only a parent understands.
It is truly phenomenal that the love between two people can create a human being. Knowing that God has planned our daughter's life since the beginning of time is amazing, in the real sense of the word. I am beyond eager for her arrival, to see what God has designed her to look like, His molding of her personality, and to find out what plans He has for her life.
Lord knows I'm going to need some waterproof mascara on the big day if just looking at my belly brings me to tears!
