I am a mother and a happy one. I’ve got four boys and had missed abortion three years ago. In each pregnancy, I’ve experienced difficulty and for the first trimester was under bed rest. I gave birth to my boys through normal delivery and should I’ve known the natural way of birthing, I might have opted for that.
Despite the pregnancy hardship, I consider my motherhood journey a happy one. Not because life has always been too generous and kind. Perhaps it’s because I am surrounded by mommies who are more than willing to lend a listening ear, share a bit of wisdom, and even laugh at my flaws and antics. They comfort me and make me understand that motherhood is both exciting and challenging, or it may be heartbreaking but heartwarming as well. And most especially, they remind me that motherhood is inspiring and fulfilling.
