Today is My Only Child’s Birthday. Her name is Victoria. I never thought I could have children due to years of abusing myself in many ways. However, God is gracious and I became pregnant on my honeymoon. So, I named her Victorious Victoria. She was 3 weeks early and still weighed in at 7 lbs and 8 oz. What a thrill.
She turns 26 today. Her journey has included EXTREME HIGHS AND LOWS. However, Victoria remains Victorious. When I ponder her journey it appears from the outside as very sad, devastating, some would say unbearable. However, a Victory cannot be won without a WAR. The war she has been through and continues to fight not many could have endured.
Victorious Victoria is using her difficulties to PUSH her forward. I have taught her to NOT LET HER FEELINGS DICTATE her direction. The war she fights is inside her head and not many understand it because to them it is invisible. Invisible wars are often misunderstood by friends and family. When friends betray your loyalty it hurts but you can move on, however, family OUCH. Family hurts cut deep.
Victoria has a heritage of Strong Woman. On both sides of her blood line we have had WARS that were invisible. I know she will be Victorious. I know the Lessons she learns will be used in the generations coming up. She has a Gift of Writing. Her exposure to the dark side of life will give her the ability to understand many young woman who feel alone, she will understand them. Nothing she has gone through will go to waste.
So I would like to Place a Memorial Stone for YOU VICTORIOUS VICTORIA on Mommy’s Blog, You continue to teach me many things and I THANK YOU. The Gift of Being a Mother to a Wounded Child causes Me to Dig Deep within Myself into a Spring of Water that will never run dry of LOVE FOR YOU.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY VICTORIOUS VICTORIA, Love Mom
