I'm not typically a person that can just "go with the flow".
No, I'm more of a "let's plan this out and write those plans down, freak out when they don't happen" kind of person. So you can imagine how incredibly painful it was for me to have to NOT be that person.
I had dreams. Big ones. I had dreams of doing the whole "backpack through Europe" thing most teens dream about. It never happened. Money issues, time issues, life issues. But that's okay. I was going to be a superstar, a mega singer that was selling out stadiums left and right.....except I had zero sex appeal. Oh well...such is life.
I'm not one to stir trouble. I avoid that. Sometimes, though, it finds me. So, I deal with it. People say that makes me brave. I say it makes me human. What do I know though, right?
In a gutsy move on my part, I threw caution to the wind when I met this one certain person. It was absolutely life changing for me. I looked at all of my dreams, all of my hopes, and I realized that, in one moment, one breath of a second, I was willing to exchange them for something else, something HUGE.
My life was about to be dedicated to something so much bigger than me. My life was about to not belong to me anymore. It was about to belong to this gift that some might say a stork brought me. I would spend my time nourishing, comforting, loving, teaching.
It would be so worth it.
Because let me tell you.....having a husband is a awesome!
Okay so I admit....I sat down to write this several times, but the kids were on Spring Break and The Hubs was on vacation, so I got sidetracked. A lot. As I was sitting on the toilet this morning at 3:45 AM, I realized that I'd forgotten to write this. So, I sat down, without having any coffee in me, mind you, and wrote this out. I had no clue what direction I was going to go with this, but, well, there it is. Thank you to the lovely Tamara from Confessions of a part-time working mom for the words!
