He Embraces Me

For a very long time I wanted to be a mother. I always prayed to God asking him to please bless me with a son. If he was ever going to bless me with a child, and if it was only going to be one baby for all of my life, I said God please at least send me a son. Now, for a very long time my husband and I tried to have a baby, and well no go. Finally after 6 years of trying, I guess you can say God decided this was our time, and we were ready to have a baby. We were given the news that we would be blessed with a baby soon. While durring my pregnancy, I started to think to myself, I came this far and you know what God, please bless us with what ever you want me to have boy or girl. I started getting this feeling that we were going to have a girl. So I was very excited and told my husband this is it we must be having a girl for sure, what led me to believe, well I guess tales of other womens symptoms..so to me I was having a girl. The day came when I was 5 months and I was going to be told if it was going to be a girl or boy. To our surprise we were told we were having a boy!!!!!!!! A boy....dear God, you blessed me with a boy....thank you!!! I teared up just thinking wow I really wanted a girl. ha ha ha.....but deep inside a boy was just for me. Well now he is 1 years old. Holding him in my arms is just the most amazing feeling I have ever felt in all of my life. He is so great, I just want to share this one story....a story with everyone. I hold him in my arms and he lays his head on my shoulder and I pat his back and you know what he does? He pats me back on my back too. He embraces me, now that's amazing.
