Welcome to Orange Tuesdays 19th Edition!
Thank you to my 25 participant last week!
My Orange share for this week is one of the food we prepare during my baby Iris Birthday last Sept. 24, 2011. My baby turns 1 year old. Of course, I wanna thank GOD for giving me my baby to my life, for the gift of motherhood that I am enjoying right now. I know not everyone has given the chance to become a mother, and I am one lucky woman to be called mother, a chance to raise a child. I could say, of all the things I have experience it is of being a mother that I really enjoyed the most. I am not saying I am a perfect mother but I know I am a good mother. Especially raising my baby alone. I am proud to be called single mom.
It is when I become a mother, a single mom where I appreciate every aspect of my life. This is where I realize GOD loves me so much and that GOD is trully an amazing GOD. I know some of you knows that I am a single mom and that my baby's father abandon her, he did not aknowledge Iris to be his child (oh well, he has his own reason why he do that- selfish reason I may say, and now to be honest, I am not that affected anymore-I am happy now..trully happy!) I had no plan to celebrate my baby's 1st birthday because of financial constraint and I have to priotize things especially monetary aspect. Iris needs to undergo 2D echo (Iris has heart problem) after she turns 1year old and my money was intended for that. My friend, Iris godmother insist to celebrate it coz its her 1st birthday. She contact our closest college friends and Iris godparents they plan how they can help to celebrate Iris bday. I was touch, very touch with their gesture. Some give us money, others sponsor cakes and balloons and other stuff. In short Iris birthday was push thru because of my friends. That's where I realize GOD loves me and my baby. GOD uses my friends to show me and my baby that HE loves us. Iris may not have a love of the father she deserve but we have the FATHER above that love us. THAT LOVE IS ENOUGH FOR ME AND MY BABY TO BE HAPPY AND GO ON WITH OUR LIVES. I had no grudges or whatsoever with Iris father. I even wish him well. I know GOD will always be with me and my baby.
