You know looking back my life has turned out nothing like I thought it would. Let me just say right away, “Thank Goodness!” I imagined myself single. Living in some large city living it up being an interior designer. Drinking at all those glamorous parties and living for my work. Now if this is you then that is awesome because this would still be an amazing way to live! Just not the way I would want my life to be anymore.
I live for moments wrapped up and smothered in kisses from my boys. Sitting with my husband on the couch watching a movie and sharing a bowl of ice cream. Chasing my wild puppy around my house trying to get her back inside when she has slipped out before I can get her leash on her. These moments I now realize are what give me life. I live on the crazy chaos. The baseball games and late nights. The homemade cookies and sloppy kisses. Baiting the fishing lines for my boys and taking the fish off the line that they just reeling in. YES, you read that right. I touch the slimy worms and the fish! Never in a million years did I dream I would be a boy mom. But her I am a mom to three super busy boys and I am killing it! I mean most of the time. I still go Bat shit crazy on the regular and must pray for grace ALL the time. If I didn’t would I even be human? Lol
Here is the thing though. This messy life is just what God knew I needed. He knew I wasn’t made for the life I had made up in my mind so very long ago. He knew I needed wild, rambunctious and free-thinking. It has taken me a long time to realize or accept that God knew just what he was doing when he placed my husband in my life; and then placed these three amazing boys in my life with each personalities being created so they are so different and yet so much alike. How is it that we think we know what is best for us, but then we can be so wrong?
I am thankful I was wrong. It may not always be what I expect, but I am glad someone far wiser than myself seen something so wonderful in me that he chose this life for me. I look forward to sharing this crazy journey with you and hope you stick around and stay tuned. It’s always a wild ride. Make sure to hold on tight!
Love and Light,
