My Purpose

For the last 9 years of my life, I worked in a dermatology office as a medical assistant. I loved my job. Though most dermatology problems are not life threatening, it was still rewarding to help others with their skin problems.

Last September, I quit my job to prepare to have my baby. She was born in October and
my life has not been the same since. God has blessed me with a wonderful baby. I don't think that I could asked for a more perfect little girl. She is beautiful, very happy, and just a joy to be around.

I truly believe that I am supposed to be a mom. I enjoy every little thing about my daughter. I love to watch her chew her Cheerios. I love to watch her play with her toys. I love to listen to her read her books.

I would never want to go back to being childless. After all these years of wondering if I really wanted to have children, I now know this is what I was created for.

This season in my life I know is just to love my little girl and to show her God's love for her. I will enjoy every moment of it. (Don't get me wrong. I still get frustrated with her regularly.) This is probably going to be the easiest season in my life with her. But I know that God will grant me the tools I need for the next season.

Now if I could just talk my husband into hiring a maid for me, I could enjoy it much more.

Hey Emily,

Your Mom sent me the link to your blog - nice. I'll check in now and then to see what's happening with you. How about a picture of my newest cousin? Especially since I haven't seen her yet!

Have you checked out my blog? Your Mom has the address. It's a blog of our time traveling the USA!

Your cousin,

Thanks for the picture - she is a cutie. Dottie kept telling me that she was - she was right.

I always knew that you would be a great Mom. The way you took care of your black-haired baby and your Cabbage Patch Dolls showed me what a great mom you would one day make.
When you asked me to look after your Cabbage Patch dolls while you were in school told me that you were a very caring person and that someday you would care for your children in a very similar manner. You may have given up a career that you loved, but you began a new career that God intented for you to have and you will be an even greater Mom to you children than to all those dolls that were so precious to you years ago. God will truly bless you for taking on this new role. Yes, there will be frustrating days, but HE doesn't give you more than you can carry. Yes, there will be bumps and bruises and maybe even broken bones, but we will all be there to help you and Dave through all your trials. Abby is blessed to have you and Dave for her parents. Love You Lots, Mom

What an adorable baby girl - and what a sweet time in your life. Enjoy every minute...soak up every second...it goes by way too fast. :-)

Your daughter is beautiful!

You are so right. There is nothing more fulfilling than the joys of being a mother. I have a five month old baby boy, and I'm cherishing every moment with him. I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Lol--I agree about the maid thing. ;D
