I titled this posting, "Who Knew?" Why do I say this? When I was a little girl my dream in life was this: To become a teacher, to become a wife, and to become a mother. To live my life the way God wants me to. Along this journey I have taken winding roads instead of the straight and narrow path. Each winding road growing me stronger into the person I need to be for where I am now in life!
Why did God allow me to have polio, why did I have to deal with all the self esteem issues that go along with it. Why did I get married latter in life? Why have I not become a teacher. But I ask myself these question and I know the answers and they are the three little children that you see in these pictures. My life experiences have prepared me to help my children grow into the young children they are going to be. My ability to be social and outgoing will help Eli to become the confident young man that I hope he will become. My understanding of physical challenges will help Alex to get the extra encouragement he needs to overcome his challenges. My desire to teach is helping all my kids to learn and to love to learn. Everything is a lesson in life!
So, I have become the person I want to be, maybe not the way I thought it would look like but they way God saw it would be!
The little things I relish... Eli reading two sentence's in a book at 4 years old. Alex signing his first "two word" put together, Emma rolling over for the first time. These are my joys!
I am blessed to have a husband who supports me in all I do! He works so hard so that I can stay home and be actively involved in my kids lives!! To a wonderful family who helps me financially and emotionally, as I go through all the tough struggles as well as blessings. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends who are my church family, who I know are there for me when ever I need them. For wonderful Mentors in my life who have supported me and given me such Godly wisdom and wisdom from their own lives to carry me through everything! MOST OF ALL I AM BLESSED To HAVE THE LOVE AND SUPPORT OF MY FATHER UP IN HEAVEN. Who knows all and shows me a little at a time of his best for me!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! May I give to you as much as you have given to me!!!
