I've Never Wanted So Little...
I never knew how much love and family could change my perspective on...well, everything. When I graduated from college (two and a half years early) I had BIG dreams. I was going to have a big job, a big California house with a pool, and drive some kind of big luxury vehicle with leather seats - a husband and kids would come later.
Then along came Darren and the move to California. I quickly realized my life would not be complete without him. Long story short, we got hitched and started to build our life together. All of a sudden MY goals became OUR goals and they reflected a more frugal and practical life than I dreamed up my last semester at WSU.
And now we have Isaiah. The perfect addition to our life. He fills places in my heart that I didn't even know I had with so much love and joy! Every day I feel like I'm going to explode! How did I get so lucky? Why did God choose me of all people to have the most incredible husband and father to the most wonderful little baby?
While I know it's important to take time for myself, I've never really wanted so little. New clothes? New car? More jewelry? What for? As long as me and my boys are healthy and happy, I have all I need...and that's alright by me.
This life I'm living is better than anything I imagined. I guess sometimes the dreams that come true are the ones you didn't even know you had.
This song came on the radio the other day and I just about started balling. What a perfect way to describe how I feel!
