Yesterday was Luca’s birthday, he turned one! We are so excited to celebrate this milestone for him and for us, because if you’re a parent you know how hard it can be for everyone in the family, it takes a village!

As I reflected on this past year, all I thought about was how grateful I am to have birthed life into this world and be able to raise my son. I stand in awe of the miracle of life, it’s a beautiful thing and I’m so blessed to have gone through this process.

Motherhood definitely changes you, teaches you, molds you, tests you, and challenges you. I used to hear people say, that it’s the hardest job in the world but also the most rewarding, and omg the statement cannot be truer.

It’s a season of life that comes with many surprises, motherhood is not for the weak at heart.

On the other hand, we should always remember that not all women can have children at the moment they desire, and also some women don’t have the desire to have children. Their calling and assignment here on earth have taken them in a different direction, and that’s ok. Let’s celebrate motherhood but let’s not condemn the beautiful women around us if they choose not to or can’t have babies in the season of their life when they expected to.

If there is one thing I am sure of is that God’s timing is perfect!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. – Ecclesiastes 3:1
