I was inspired this week to share a little bit more about myself and the story I have to tell. I have been home this week recovering from knee surgery. When you are home with nothing much to do you think, and I am pretty good at thinking about things. Well earlier this week I came across a post on a blog I follow My Pink Stamper that totally motivated me to want to share my story.
Okay you might think, wow this woman wants, wants, wants...no, wait a minute. Those ifs are the events of my adult life, well some of them. And they all represent a time in our lives. Don't take me the wrong way each of those ifs were well bathed with prayer and thought about long and hard before the plan was set in motion to tackle each one of those events.So although I do feel they are a bi-product of me being a discontent kind of person, they were designed for me I do believe.
Well fast forward through all those paths in my life to the one I am currently ensconced within. After a very disconcerting year teaching kindergarten I felt as if I needed to take the big step of being home for my family. Now some might think, "Wow, you have an empty nest. There is no one at home but your husband." Well my answer to that would be I so want to take care of the man that indulged all of my discontentness throughout the years AND I have 7 grandchildren that are growing by leaps and bounds...time is in triple beat with them. So, my dream and desire to be home to watch them grow, be totally immersed in their lives, and take care of my sweet hubby's needs has come to fruition. AND I could not be more content! I have never been more happy and content in my entire life!!!
So, I want to leave you, my readers, with this thought. Live in the moment and love each one...don't be always looking for the next thing or milestone to come along. Don't wish away the present, live in it!!
