I have never been that type of girl who oohed and aahed over babies. I was never one of those girls who dreamed of getting married and starting a family. In fact, I always thought that I would be well into my 30s when I got married. It was just not something I pictured when I thought of my future. And kids, well, they were definitely a maybe, not a necessity. There was so many other things I wanted to experience.
Well, my life is quite different from the life I pictured for myself when I was younger. Now I’m 27, I have been married for 5 years and have a baby. And you know what? I wouldn’t change any of it. Even during the hours of crying and fussing, also known as colic, I wouldn’t change any of it. I have been so blessed.
It has taken some hard work and I’ve gone through some rough patches, but now I see why. I could have given up at many points, but I just kept on going. Sometimes I didn’t even know why, there just seemed to be some invisible force keeping me going.
Now I know what it was pushing me towards. It was pushing me towards the best thing anybody can experience in their life. The smile of their child.
