One thing that I had always wanted to be as a young child was a mother. I had all my dolls...most of which were girls...and played with them all the time. I even remember one year my parents buying me a doll that was the size of a 6 month old baby (even wore 6 month old baby clothes). I took that doll everywhere...we even went garage saleing for clothes for this doll! I put it into the bath (not a good idea to do with a cloth doll) and dried it off with the hair dryer (again...not such a good idea with a cloth doll), which resulted in a hole in the belly of my baby...just a slight burn! What a great mom! LOL Nothing that a onsie put onto my baby (permanently) wouldn't fix...didn't want to lose all that stuffing! I played with that doll a lot!! (well, until her head popped off...then I had to throw her away)
So here I am today...I'm not a teacher or an accountant. And that degree in computers? I've never had a job that I could use that degree in...and since computers have changed so much since I graduated from college, my degree isn't worth much!! I am a mother...but of boys! :) And I don't work...well, outside of my house for money.
Not quite what I had thought my life would be, but that's ok, God knows what he's doing. I couldn't imagine what my life would even look like if it were my decision on what it would be.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.
I'm forever changed...in more ways than one. I'm ok with that!
