"A Mother’s Love for her child is like nothing else in the world, it knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path" - Agatha Christie
Until you become a mother you have no idea how much these words ring true. I have three beautiful children and with each child the love that I have as a mother simply grew.
Pregnant with my second child I was not very nervous throughout the whole pregnancy, this wasn’t my first time so I didn’t have a lot of the worries and unsureness many new moms feel. I felt confident in my abilities as a mother and had heard from many people that the second birth is usually easier.
But then one day I suddenly had a thought that never occured to me and caused me great concern. My son at the time was 3 years old and was so excited for his little sister to arrive, and the whole pregnancy I focused on this so much, his excitement and his involvement that I never thought about the love for the new child that was about to arrive.
In a panic, I thought to myself, how could I possibly love my second child as much as the first, would I always favor my son? As my daughter’s due date approached the thought kept creeping up, but when the birth finally arrived and they placed her on my chest all my worries melted away. In an instant my heart grew in ways I never thought possible for this beautiful new love in my life.
