My water broke on Friday morning. After 24 hours of labor, I ended up getting a c-section. Everything that I thought this experience would bring, changed every time I turned my head. When they say you can’t predict how things will go, that is an understatement. For me, it was scary, emotional, painful and nothing went according to the plan I had in my head.
But when it’s all said and done, it doesn’t matter what you have planned. God’s plan is bigger. And when you are faced with abandoning your own wants or needs, you do it because all that matters is what you have in your arms at the end of the day, what you’re holding when you walk out of that hospital.
And what I was holding… well, I’m sure you know it’s changed my life. I’ll never be the same.
