The Early Years

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Having children is no easy task. Personally, I am merely an auntie and I wondered at times how I would survive. During the first few weeks we  think: how cute, we want to hold them all the time, hearing them cry breaks our heart, we dote and dote and dote. Unfortunately those feelings won’t last long, they wear off quicker than you’d imagine. Instead our thoughts become: when will they become more independent, we long for the day when they will sleep through the night, we no longer want to hold them all the time – we need time to continue with our daily tasks, when will they use the potty – cleaning diapers is torture. You might think yourself to be bad parents for having these thoughts but kids are challenging.

During these times, time keeps on ticking. It never stops and those innocent babies grow; growing happens quickly; sooner than you think they are little characters of they own. It is only when this happens that you take a moment to reflect. It’s at this time you begin to wonder where did the time go? If only you could have those earlier days back. If you think twice about it however, it’s really not what you want at all.

Details: Kids will never know the sacrifices that are made by parents. Being an auntie I also don’t realize the sacrifice but I am like a parent in that I would do anything for the children in my life.

The birth of my nephew was a scary time, the family was on edge thinking we could lose my sister. This was Try’s first kid and she was all alone, it hurts me to think of how scared she was without her family to help her through. My mom got a parents worst call informing her my sister was on the edge of life; she needed to fly to Washington immediately; we were all shell shocked. But nothing beats the power of prayer, hope and faith.
I look at my nephew, my sister and her husband. I silently say thank you father for your blessings and mercy. You are an awesome sister and mother. Your sacrifice tells the world you have the heart of a angel.
