Day 5. They say, life is filled with twists and turns, ups and downs, happiness and bitterness… But, we shouldn’t forget that life is also sprinkled with lots of surprises and proud moments.
When I saw Day 5 on my 30-day blogging challenge, I unconsciously took few weeks of blogging hiatus. Reason? I cannot choose which among my proud moments is my “proudest.”
As a wife, as sister, and a daughter, I hope my loved ones would understand if I say that my proudest moment is not when I got married, not when we had my sister, and not when I felt loved and pampered by my parents. My proudest moment was when I found out that I was pregnant. It was an early Tuesday morning, exactly on my birth date, when I found out that I’m going to be a mom.
(Just a side story: When I woke my husband and showed him the pregnancy test result, he just held it with eyes closed thinking that I was handing him a USB. Tsk, tsk, tsk! What a sleepy head!)
I wasn’t able to take a photo of the kit, but I still keep it at my wardrobe cabinet to this day. As they say, “Record things in your heart. It’s more important than trying to show people what you’re experiencing.”
Thereafter, I had an endless roster of proud moments – when my son first rolled over onto his tummy, when my son learned how to sit, when my son started singing, when he first called me with my new name – “Mommy.” The list goes on and on and on… I guess, it’s true that motherhood changes lives of many women. But, one thing’s for sure… It’s changed by life for the best.
Proud mom and happy wife,
