When you learn that caring about someone else is more important than anything you could do for yourself.
Sometimes it can be hard to put someone before ourselves. We are human and we are innately selfish. It takes a conscientious effort to put others before ourselves.
But when a women gets pregnant, there is shift. We now have a growing little one we carry inside our bellies. Our focus shifts from ourselves to the little one.
I remember the day I was walking through Wal-Mart with my mother-in-law. She told me that once I had my baby I’d shift from buying things for myself all the time to buying them for the baby. I didn’t believe her. Boy was I wrong. You have subconscious desire to buy everything you can for your little one. For the first time in your life you truly care about someone else more than yourself.
For me, Mari was that little baby. She was my little miracle that wasn’t supposed to happen. I’m glad that God put within me the desire to care more about her than myself. I had the privilege of rained a very special little girl. She will always be a part of me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
