My Heart Is Full

I have come to a point in my life where I can say my heart is full. Today while I was sitting in church, I just felt this joy filling me up.

A lot of this joy has to do with Niya. I dressed her up in this cute outfit and was extremely excited to show her off.

But so much of my joy is centred on more than my present circumstance. Yes, I love being a mother and I feel she has expanded all that is good in me. But as I sat in church I really just felt at peace.

I wasn’t worrying. I wasn’t thinking of yesterday or tomorrow. I was living in the present, counting my blessings. It is the most wonderful feeling, having a full heart.

I’ve been a hopeless romantic for years. When I was about 13 years old I was already praying for my future husband, reading tons of horrible romance novels and hoping for a future filled with love and happiness. I guess that’s the dream for most of us. We yearn for companionship, for an opportunity to love and be loved in return. We want to know the secret to finding the happiness for which our hearts yearn. But too often we are looking in the wrong direction, towards a world that tells us we need to have a perfect body, fat bank accounts and a host of other things to fulfill this innate desire.
