Oh boy! And away I go
With this new baby and our introduction to homeschooling, I'm entering another new part of my life journey- one where I relax previous personal goals from my tightly clenched fists and reach for new, worthwhile ambitions concerning my family. I may not have my bachelor's degree framed on a wall yet, but I have two smart, unique, healthy, silly, and thriving children to boast about! I may not be an acclaimed actress, director, or published author, but I will never regret investing this time into nurturing, teaching, inspiring, encouraging, and helping my own kids succeed in their own dreams.
Our pastor just finished an amazing series of messages entitled "The Time of Your Life," and I walked away feeling confident that I am not wasting it. 2 kids, 3 kids, maybe 4 kids later: they will be my greatest work and accomplishments in this life, so it makes sense to put the majority of my time, focus, and energy towards raising them. Careers, hobbies, and degrees have been pushed down the priority list.
Who knows where the next road will take me. I'm sure it won't be easy. I'm positive it will be humbling. But in the end, I will have grown. And I know that with our wise, selfless choices, we'll see blessings along the way.
