{Laura} ♥


{Momma Love Series}
Yesterday my Guest Blogger was Darlene. Darlene took my breath away.....

 Today another wonderful Momma...
and guess what, she is Darlene's Momma!!!!

Laura is funny, I loved reading her story she reminded me of my own Momma who was young and only had my Dad as her support as she birth her first 3 children... {we are 4 but the 4th came when I was 13, my sister was 11 and my brother was 8...}

I am loving my part-time job as a Blogger these days... and the people who are on this ride with me! 

Enjoy her story...as I have....

               My name is Laura, I Love Jesus, I love my family, I love to read, I love the beach. I have 3 kids. 2 daughters and one son, my eldest daughter's name is Darlene and my babygirl daughter is named Angelina after my mama. My son is Tony Jr. . I became a mama when I was just 19 years old. I was very young and in love with their father Tony. My eldest daughter Darlene was born to me when I was 19, I got pregnant, graduated high school and married at 18. I was very scared but honestly I had their father's love by my side and he helped me alot. So I can say I didn't know what I was getting into and I'm sorry to say I didn't have the patience I should've had, she had colic real bad and was always sickly my poor Darla but I never hurt my child. 
              Pregnancy wasn't what I expected but then again I was so naive I didn't know what to expect. My daughter Darlene was such a good little baby and I love her. It  was  3 yrs later my husband & I wanted another child and were very blessed with another daughter whom we named after my dying mama Angie. I was 5 months pregnant with Angie when my mama Angie passed away. I was so distraught and honestly I know my Angie was heaven sent because she was the happiest baby and was so cute and just funny always has been. She helped me make it through my mama's death, well her and Darla did. I knew I had to be the best mama I could try to be to them, even though I didn't have much guidance from my mom, I tried and I know I made mistakes along the way but I hope and pray my girls will only remember the good times and not the bad ones. There weren't many bad ones :) . So my husband and I said we would try for another baby and I especially wanted to try before I turned 30. 
                 From the time my Angie was born in 89 to 95 I had got a bad infection from an IUD and was told I might not be able to have anymore babies so I was scared but my husband and I decided to try because If I did get pregnant I wanted it to happen before I turned 30, so the year I was turning 30 we succeeded! I had my son one month shy of turning 31 and he was born 13 years after his big sister and 10 years from his other big sister so it was a huge time gap! 
                 My pregnancies were all good, I have to say the last one took a toll on my back and I had them all NATURAL! OMG! What pain, but when they put that little person in your arms for the first time, there is no words to describe the instant love you feel for a person you just met. When I was pregnant with my first one my mom prepared me by saying "Just imagine the worst pain you will ever feel in your life" I was like Thanks mom! LOL and as I was in labor all I kept focusing on was meeting my baby for the first time and I'm so happy to say my hubby Tony was by my side to help me with each of our children. 
                 My kids have been true blessings to me and all three are good kids, thank you Lord! I now have 2 beautiful grandchildren from my eldest and let me tell you that love is like no other, it's undescribable and yes you do let your grandbabies get away with more, It's like the love is intensified because you see that little piece of person that came from your flesh and it's like "WOW", So I have to conclude this by saying being a mother is a true blessing from above and the joy I feel in my heart when I see my kids and now grandkids happy, smiling, laughing fills me up with love & hope for our futures. 
             Thank you for allowing me to share this, it does make you feel good :) And for me to remember ALL the way back to being that young, naive mom to this happy confident mom and grammy is AWESOME!
