Giving Birth

Fifteen years ago, I laid in a hospital bed with labor pains, without knowing what would come out of me. I was in labor with a baby, that was the extent of my knowledge. And with the level of pain that I was having during natural birth, I honestly didn’t care. I carefully prayed for this child that I would be a good steward/parent, and that I would be what this gift from God needed.

Nervously unprepared, I prayed without ceasing asking for details and seeing into what is now present. I have an extraordinary child who is the absolute love of my life!

My daughter is blessed coming in and blessed going out. We have a fantastic relationship and I am proud of that. She is hysterical! And, she knows God spiritually, not religiously.

I appreciate that she is aware and such a servant. I could go on for days and it may to some seem as if I’m bragging but I’m giving thanks. My daughter adds to those who surround themselves with the light that she carries, and she’s an investor in human capital. She believes in people and cares about them. She’s the friend you want.

Today I give thanks to God for giving me such a healthy, beautiful chocolate baby girl. She has chosen to love me. She’s a great example to me of unconditional love.

She believes in me whether I win, lose or draw. While many people can’t wait for their children to leave the nest, I’m trying to hold back tears and I have three years to go.

I pray that every parent chooses to teach, train and develop their children into beings that they want to be connected to not because of title but relationship.

Many times we are in labor, and if the circumstances don’t “seem” right or if you “feel” that the timing is off like getting pregnant out-of-wedlock or in financial ruin, you resent the process of giving birth. Your disdain becomes the creation.

In other words, you pray for something and labor over it with love, and then abandon it in your heart because it does not seem like it will produce. Well, I am here to tell you from experience with my massage company and my book… And as a mother, labor is a sign that its coming whether you like it or will abandon it.

You’re going to give birth! It may not be something you acknowledge, you may abort it, but understand even in abortion the thing that you were pregnant with will come out.

In honor of the greatest daughter to walk the face of the planet I want to provoke you to do an ultrasound. Look deep down and examine what’s inside moving around. Check the heart beat, identify the due date, and get yourself ready. One thing about pregnancy, it may conceptualize when you least expect it, but the growth and delivery are planned for experiences.

Do you have the doctor on speed dial? Have you chosen the method to deliver? Packed your bags yet? Who will hold your hand, and who will feed you ice chips or walk you in the hallway when it begins to get uncomfortable. Before you deliver their will be false contractions, then when its time the real contractions feel like they are going to take you out of here.

But the truth is, God has found a way to get something unexplainable and extraordinary literally through you. Children are tangible reminders of our manifestation process.

Happy Birthday to my daughter and thank you for being such a gift from the most high. You are the light of the world!

I love you,
