Today I am really grateful for what I've been given....even though it's not always what I asked for.
You see, if I had been the one choosing, I would have had a house full of girls. They would be beautiful and they would be spaced 2 years apart. They would love to sing and dance and I'd sew them ruffled skirts. BUT, I got this.
And while the young ignorant me might have been upset that things didn't go as I had planned, the older current me is so thankful that I wasn't the one making the calls because this life is more than I ever could have planned or dreamed.
And while the current-likes-to-plan-and-be-in-control-of-everything-me has been struggling lately because we've been trying to get pregnant for 11 months now, I know I will look back eventually and be grateful everything happened the way it did. I am grateful to have that trust in God and His plan.
So here's to letting go and handing over the control to someone who knows so much more than I do. Here's to giving up pity parties and frustrations. Here's to being grateful for what I already have.
Thank you for being here.
