Having a college degree or even a doctoral degree plus a good job and loving husband will not guarantee that you will be a mother. It’s because I always see that a profession as a mother is a gift from God. His time and His plan, not our time and our plan.
While you know when you will finish your assignment or work project, your job as a mother is infinite. You are still a mother even after your child goes to a college and later has his or her own family.
You also know your child’s characters very well, just like you know the characters of your team members or co-workers. You have to deal with the ups and downs 24 hours a day, 7 days in a week, 365 days in a year.
I would say this is the most challenging, yet the most rewarding job you could ever asked.
So, whether you are pregnant and expect to see the baby soon or are a mother now, I want you to know how precious your job is. I know some days are easy while others are difficult, but I would like to remind you the happy little moments like when you feel the baby moves around inside your belly, see the smile, hear the first word, get the first kiss and more. These moments are priceless, could not be measured with anything else. Thus, enjoy the journey.
Last but not least, if you are longing to have one and/or still waiting for the good news, I want you to continue to hope for the best.
