I became a Mother about a year and a half ago. My journey into motherhood was not as difficult as I had always imagined it would be. I got through the pregnancy (although definitely not pain-free!), I made it through labor & delivory (which had always been my greatest fear!), and the first year of motherhood was surprisingly simple. I was patient with my daughter, attentitive to her needs, and every moment I had to care for her I was glad to do it! This was a shock to me because I have always been an impatient person and I had always worried about how I would be as a mother. God definitely answered my prayers in getting me through the initial shock of being Mom. I fully understood that she was a baby, she did not know any better when she did things wrong (to a certain extent) and when she cried it was for a purpose.
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
