Teacher, chef, doctor, lawyer, firefighter, President, and Scientist are some popular jobs that people want to be when “they grow up”. For me, none of those jobs ever stood out to me. Sometimes, I thought “oh, being a teacher would be nice or maybe a chef would be really neat” but as I got older I knew what I wanted to be. In college I was always debating on what I should study…business, math, foreign language, nutrition, education??…you name it, I probably considered it. So, what would be the right fit for me?
Well, easy to say I love food and I enjoy education so I went the nutrition education route and it was a perfect fit for me. But all during that time, my dream was to graduate, marry the man of my dreams and become a mom. Sometimes when people asked me what I wanted to be, I was hesitant to say a mom, but now I realize what a blessing it is to be one. Not everyone gets that chance. There is much lack of sleep, free time, and spontaneity but it is such a joy to be a mom. How much fun is it to watch something that started out as small as a grain of sand grow to be as big as we are?! How cool is it that we get a glimpse to see how Christ loves His children?! It causes me to be in awe.
It’s not everyone’s dream but it’s my dream and I’m trying to cherish every moment.
