It was a cold February day. I recall being at work and talking to my friend/coworker "Medina". I told her that my menstrual cycle was late and I needed to go to Duane Reade during lunch. That day I took a total of four pregnancy test. I needed to make sure because of a previous experience I had with her sister Tereya. When I was pregnant with Tereya, I also took three test. The results were not accurate. One was positive, two were negative and finally a positive blood test. There is no need for me to elaborate, we all know how the story ended. Lol!
September 8th, is a very special day. God blessed me with my second daughter one decade ago today. I remember that night as if it were yesterday. If it were up to the ER physician, Nyasia would have been born in the elevator or the sidewalk. My Ob/Gyn was performing a c-section and he barely made it in time to deliver my baby. Dr. Kuno handed me this little tiny baby with the big beautiful eyes. She was born at 12:56am and weighed 5lbs and 14ozs. After a few minor complications I endured during the pregnancy, I was ecstatic to know that she was born healthy. It was one of the greatest moments in my life. It's hard to believe that she is 10 years old already. I am so proud of her and all her accomplishments thus far. I am very proud of her for understanding herself and being the best she can be. I cannot imagine my life without her. I am screaming, yelling, hollering, Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter. She was my late birthday present. We have the same zodiac sign but we are nothing alike. I want her to know that Mommy love’s her to the moon and back. May God bless you on this day and every day. May you continue to be the wonderful and kindhearted person you are. I love you and I thank God for allowing me to be your mother.
