Lately, when someone asks me how I'm doing, I often tell them "I'm living the dream." For the first time in my life, I don't long to be something more than I am. I LOVE my life. I am a wife and mother, and as I anticipated for all those years, this is exactly what I am supposed to be.
It amazes me how much motherhood changes a woman immediately. Suddenly, I don't think of my own needs as the primary issue in my life. I think that's why I'm so happy. All day, I think of my baby boy and my husband. Their needs are my life, and I love doing everything I can for them.
I have found my balance, because I have become the person my heart always longed to be. To anyone who is reading this post, I hope that you listen to your heart and let God make your dreams happen, no matter how impossible they may seem. He put them there, and He'll bring them to fruition if you surrender your heart to Him. Don't misunderstand; I'm not saying this is easy. Getting to this place in my life was not simple. There were obstacles and heartache that I can't begin to describe, but I kept looking to Jesus. That's the key.
