This tiger I bought when I was 5 weeks pregnant. It was the same time that a nurse told me to consider an abortion. She only saw concern for my life, when I saw concern for the life growing inside me. There were so many fears I had, and losing this baby was one of them. I was not going to purposely choose to lose him or her. I saw this at Target and it was the first purchase I made for my little one. It seems like such a little thing but it was such a big deal to have something tangible to hold onto while I was trying to not lose all hope…. all it takes is faith the size of a mustard seed and the impossible becomes possible.
He brings so much joy to my life, and I look back and wish I knew then what I know now. I wish I knew to enjoy the pregnancy more. I wish I knew to not be so scared to lose the baby and embrace the life growing inside of me without fear of it slipping away. I wish I knew to trust God with every ounce of my being, instead of being scared of Him not answering my prayers.
I am so thankful that he allowed my sweet baby to be laying here, happy and smiling.
We don’t know the future. Right now you might be scared of what is to come. But one day you’ll look back and wish you had trusted a little more. Everything works out the way He plans. Sometimes it’s not the way we want, and sometimes it’s everything we prayed for… all it takes is faith the size of a mustard seed and the impossible becomes possible.
