Motherhood: A New Sense of Humility
Women give birth everyday, but the experience is enough to completely alter one’s perspective of life. Pregnancy and delivery might make some women feel a sense of power, of creating life, of being the medium for someone’s arrival into this world.But for me, it did the complete opposite.I am extremely humbled. Delivery in all actuality is a near-death experience, and for me, ready to go under the knife as I was out cold from full anesthesia, and came back due to His will, I felt the immense, harrowing, yet assuring realization that my life is not in my hands.It was all Him. My Rabb was the One guiding my body, the doctor’s hands, to bring out the baby alive and breathing..
