If I were to have a baby this year, my oldest child would only be 14 when I turn 40! That means I will be really old when my kids are all grown. No, I'm not pregnant, although I have had three different people ask me if I am in the last 2 weeks. Thanks!
I did think by now I would have at least one, maybe two kids. Life really hasn't turned out like I had planned. When I graduated high school I thought I would go to college for a year and then marry someone that I met at college. Turns out, I finished college, then married someone I met at home.
I thought I might be young women's president someday, when I was like 30 and had a daughter who would be in YW in a few years. Turns out I am 25 and YW president with no kids.
I thought I would work at my current job for maybe a year and then find something better. After three years I'm still here and haven't found anything better.
I never thought I would have a brand new home that I really like, the car of my dreams, or a Yorkie, and I would have been okay without all of these things.
The thing is, I am pretty content with how things are right now most of the time. That's a blessing I am very grateful for. We all have things in life that aren't what we planned in our heads while day dreaming through those boring classes. We all have things that we would change if we could. But, isn't being content pretty good? I can think of a lot worse things. Life is hard, and if we can get through it and be okay with God's plans and the way he has made things, I think that's pretty good.
