Mama Megan Mackey


Hey there friends. I'm Megan and I blog over at Mackey Madness. I'm currently about 35 weeks pregnant with a little girl and I just cannot wait to meet her.

 It has been so fun to be on this pregnancy journey with Sarah and I just know that she is going to be the best mom. That baby boy is blessed. : )

I've only been on the ride of motherhood for a short time compared to most, but I've already learned that it is a crazy, emotional, blessed journey. Sometimes I can think of a million words to describe it and sometimes I can't think of any that do it justice. 

For me it began from the moment that I saw that positive pregnancy test. My world changed, even though I wouldn't really begin to "see" any changes for months. There's just something about knowing that you are carrying a little life inside of you that changes you to the core. It's a miracle...a God-given miracle to be blessed with a child. 

I've already learned that motherhood is scary. We lost our first baby this past February at 11 weeks of pregnancy and it was devastating. During this current pregnancy, I have been a ball of nerves at times, sometimes forgetting that I have no control over anything. Forgetting that God already knows our path and is guiding our steps. With all of the scary things that happen these days, from sickness to the recent tragic school shooting, I have had to learn to let go and let God. I can't protect this little girl from all of the bad parts of life. It's not possible. But I can teach her to love the Lord and to live her life for Him, so that no matter what happens, she spends her eternity in heaven. 

There's so many things that I dream of for our little girl. I want her to be happy. To know that she is loved. To know that someone died for her to live. I want her to exude joy and life. I want her to share the love of Jesus. I want her to be confident in herself, to know that she was made perfect in the eyes of our Creator. I want her to have a heart for people. To love life and really love people. 
I know that I have only tasted the beginnings of motherhood and the thought makes my heart race. How can I love her more than I already do now? But I know that I will, as soon as I hold her. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me, with myself and in our marriage. 

Sarah, I can't wait to see you blossom and grow as a mother! You are an inspiration.

  1. we lost our first at 8 weeks this past july...i was such a nervous wreck through the first 12 weeks of this pregnancy. always waiting for a doc appt so i could reassure myself that he was, in fact, in there and growing! having no control is such a scary thing, but it all works out in the end, God always has a plan :)
