My dreams of what adulthood would be like changed a lot over the years. I wanted to be President. An actress on Broadway. An artist. An architect. A teacher.
While many of my dreams didn’t stay the same over the years, one thing remained constant. One day I hoped I would be a wife and a mother. I wanted a family.
Yesterday I turned 36 years old. My life is more full than I ever could have hoped for. In all of my wildest, most daring and creative dreams as a child and young woman, I can honestly tell you that I never could have imagined my life the way it is now.
These little people I am mother to, well, they astound me every day. They make my heart leap. I am so thankful to be their mom.
It hasn’t always been an easy road, but here I am at 36 years old and feeling very happy and so very thankful for the blessings in my life. Each and every day is a blessing.
