My First Mother's Day

I don't mean to be cheesy or cliche', but being a mom is so amazing. It's only been three months, but these past three months have been the most fulfilling months of my life. I watch her grow and see how she's starting to explore things and she's just so happy. I love the way she stares at me so innocently and then smiles (she's so silly). I'm so excited to see what's going to happen next. I keep reading ahead in my book to see what to expect. Lailah-Alease is such a blessing in my life, I whole-heartedly treasure every moment we spend together. I used to hear people say "I thank God everyday for..." and I never believed them.I would think "thats impossible, you must forget sometimes". But I honestly thank God EVERY SINGLE DAY for my daughter. She's my heart, and motivates me to go back to school, and pursue my goal of becoming a teacher. Some people may say the timing was wrong, but I say she came at the perfect at time in my life, and restored my faith in so many things that I had begun to lose sight of.
I spent part of my Mother's Day with my mom and we had lunch. Soon after, Lailah and I got dressed and spent the rest of the day with Omar.My first Mother's Day was beautiful, I really felt appreciated and blessed at the same time.

A Gift from Omar

Aw Torchy! It doesn't matter who thought it was or wasn't perfect timing, GOD makes things happen for a reason. It's not really for us to understand. And if Sweetface Baby restored your faith in yourself, your beliefs, your goals and whatever else, then 1) it's all worth it, and 2) perhaps that was her purpose. Continue to enjoy the blessing of motherhood. It's only the beginning. Even on the days when I could swear he was a demon spawn, I still end up cuddling and kissing my Prince Pie. LOLOLOL

P.S. - Give Omar a high five. Nice gift.
