I’m not one to preach about religion but I think it’s worth noting that I am who I am today partially because of my faith. It’s always been there. Sometimes I haven’t been as good about making it a priority every Sunday but ever since E came around, I’ve started to depend on it. I understand the religion can be loosely defined but for me, it’s the belief in God and something bigger than myself and all the love and compassionate traits that come with it.
E and I were at church this past Sunday and he was actually being relatively good so I got a chance to sit and reflect, I realized just how humbling it feels to be a parent. The idea that this little guy sitting on my lap looks to me for comfort, for support, for love, for discipline, for EVERYTHING was just mind boggling.
I sat there and thought about what type of person I would love to see him become and then I realized there’s probably no better place to be than in church to ensure that E is grounded in true values. I guess that’s an ode to my mom who instilled in us so many valuable qualities that are based in faith.
I can only hope that E, one day, sees my devotion to bringing him up in faith as a crucial part of his development. He will be a better, son, brother (at some point. I’M NOT PREGNANT), husband and dare I say..Father someday.
I love you E! Good Night Dear Baby!
