Next week is my last week at work. I will then have about two or three weeks until the baby comes to prepare and adjust to being at home and have a chance to relax a bit before his arrival. I must admit that I'm both excited and nervous about this new phase of my life. I'm going to be a mother. Somebody's mother. That's such an awesome responsibility, one that I look forward to, but sometimes I wonder am I equipped enough? Earlier today, I read a wonderful article on natural family planning and the author said that God has equipped us to take care of the children that He blesses us with. That was very empowering and I feel so much more confident as I await the birth of my first blessing. I encourage all first time mothers to trust in God as they prepare for one of the largest and greatest jobs that they will ever have.
