It has been a struggle for the past five or so years for my family. When one of us is not ok, none of us are whole. Still, through the challenges, we have made great memories. Even if I consider the worst of our family’s days, I am thankful for my daughter.
My Daughter has Made Me a Better Mom
At times, the connection between a mother and daughter in inexplicable. From a young age, there were things she would automatically know I needed. As we started to have our challenges, it forced me to up my mom ante. I had to deal with my own “girl” issues and become stronger in ways I never dreamed. I have learned the key to improving my family is continually working on a better me.
My Daughter is Proof Love Comes From the Heart and not the Uterus
I didn’t give birth to my daughter but that does not change our connection. Having had children through both birth and adoption, I can tell you the love is strong with both. The uterus may carry the kid, but the heart carries what really matters — love. A mother’s heart warms with love and aches with grief no matter how she becomes a mother.
I Have Increase Faith
I have learned the real meaning of giving something to God. We have had some bleak times. In those times, I’ve learned to do my best and let God take care of the rest. As I sit here, my heart aches a little bit more than it did yesterday. I wonder what she’s doing and if she’s safe. When I wonder is there something I should be doing, I remember that I gave it to God and that’s the best one for the job.
No matter how tough things are right now, I would not be the woman I am today if it were not for my daughter. Right now my tough love equals no love for mom. I don’t know what will happen in the near future, it’s about my spiritual pay grade. All I know is that she continues to be my favorite girl in the entire world.
