Have you ever just felt that you were meant to do something? Not because someone told you you should, or because society expects it of you. But because in your heart, nothing could seem more natural to you? 


I think I have always known that I was meant to be a mother. When I was little, baby dolls were always my favourite toy. As I got older, I was always fascinated by new babies, and I spent every second I could with them. I always loved the younger kids, and when I was finally allowed to babysit I just thought it was the coolest thing ever! I still do, babysitting is one of my favourite pastimes :) 

I've always been the same. And it just seems to get stronger and stronger the older I get. To most people, it just doesn't make sense that a college student should feel the way I do, I should be making the most of my freedom (which I most definitely am!), and the thought of being a mother should terrify me, as it does most of my friends. But I can't help it. 

These photos actually make my heart hurt, and I get an awful lump in my throat. I want it so badly. :) It defines me. It's the only thing I am really sure of, I am maternal. I'm supposed to be a mother, and if nothing else ever goes right for me, I won't care as long as I have the chance to be a mother someday. 

What do you dream of? :) 


  1. This is so sweet! This is my ultimate goal in life! In fact, if I ever am given the choice, it'd be mother over college in 2 seconds.
    This is one of my favorite posts ever

  2. Wow that's amazing. I wonder how many kids and parents you will bless without even noticing by God just letting you show His love to those children!! I wonder how God will use you with this evident desire. DREAM BIG!! :D

  3. i have an obsession with younger kids and babies, i just love them. hope you find someone that you can marry and have beautiful children with! i think, from reading your posts that you could be a great mother. i dream of being a successful fashion designer. Or actually, i just want to be happy. I've never been fully happy with myself or my life.

  4. Lovely. I've actually felt like this a ton lately. I'm not quite 16, but I just can't wait! I bet you'll be a wonderful mom, especially if you're already excited for motherhood. :)

  5. I've never met you, and I can only catch a glimpse of your personality on this blog but from what I can see you'd make a pretty great mum! It's such a great dream to have, one I can definitely relate to! Trust in God and know that He's always working for the good of those who love him :) Gina x

  6. I really needed a pick-me-up, I'm so stressed from studying- and then I saw these comments. Thank you girls :)

  7. I just came across your blog post and I have to comment! That was beautiful, it made me tear up a little bit because I totally know how you feel. I started getting that feeling a few years ago and nobody I knew could relate. I was a college student also and “too young” to think about that. My heart would hurt as well but little did I know that about 2 years later I would have my sweet little blessing. He’s 7 months old now and wow was all the pain and waiting worth it! When I hear the song, “Before the morning” by Josh Wilson it reminds me of that time and how I felt. I think I take the song out of context a little but I love that he says,“the pain that you’ve been feeling can’t compare to the joy that’s coming”. Sorry if this was too lengthy! I really loved your post, Thank you for sharing.


Comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy :)
