Joining Josie2Shoes for Two shoes Tuesday
She was pregnant with her second child. The baby had just turned two last week and she was scared. Scared that she wouldn’t love another the way she loved the first. She was scared that the first child would not love the second child.
These were new feelings for her. When she was pregnant the first time she didn’t have these fears. Then she wondered how she would take care of a baby; would she know what to do. What if something went wrong? But now she knew that her maternal instincts had kicked in and that taking care of her baby was natural.
What this poor young mother did not understand is that a child holds a special spot in your heart and there is endless room for those spots. They are not saved for anyone else, just your children and grandchildren.
Three years later when she was pregnant again these fears did not reappear.
