MOMI MUSINGS| on death and life

Dec 29, 2016 | Life, Only Berlin

I haven’t thought of a name. I am not excited.  Then your papa told me a story that somehow made me realize of my selfishness or indifference perhaps.

Your papa’s cousin’s nearly three-year-old baby died of dehydration.  The baby had non-stop vomiting and diarrhea for days.

I did not know what to say.  Your papa seemed affected by the news.  After all, he is close to his cousin and the baby was his godchild.

Then I told him.  God works in mysterious ways.  You never know his plans, but if you trust in Him, definitely you will know that it is for the good of all.

And I’ve realized that it was not only to your papa that I want to address that.  I was also telling myself that message.

On death and life

On death and life

We never expect you to be coming so soon and yet you are here– so real — and we are about to see you in seven months from now.

On most nights, I cannot sleep. You’ve been reminding me too much of your presence. I, on the contrary, acted most of the time as if you are never there.

I am sorry.  There is still no acceptance from your mama.  We – your papa and I – never expected there will be someone after our little man.  But God’s message is clear. He will never stop giving me kids until I become a mom.

But hold on there.

And if I would name you, something like “God’s gift or God’s blessings” is but fitting.

    Every pregnancy is different. Sometimes, acceptance may not be here not but it will be soon. Pray. I pray for you as well and your little one. You’ll get there.

      Thank you. I hope so, too. All will go well. Which reminds me of the three idiots’ all is well mantra.

    both pregnancies of mine I hadn’t accepted at first. but as they are God’s gift, I’m sure He won’t give us something we can’t handle. so just hang on in there and try to smile. 🙂

      Thank you. I believe I only need time to accept just the way you’ve mentioned the acceptance to your two pregnancies wasn’t there at first. Thank you again.

    It’s a great news, congratulations. And even if it was not expected, it’s a beautiful news. I believe things happen for a reason. We never wanted a child with my partner and now to be honest we are thinking about it. It’s funny how time and love can change lot of things. All the best.

    Congratulations on another baby. It’s really a blessing from God even if we least expect it to be given. Anyway, do you know its gender already? I hope it’s a girl.
