This is it! This is the time I have been waiting for since I was able to carry a baby doll in my toddler arms. I am a mom!
Now I have someone to read stories to all day if I choose.
Now I have someone to converse with all day.
Now I have someone to go with on treasure hunts and nature walks.
Now I can establish fun family traditions or plan spontaneous events – like camping in the living room or eating ice cream for breakfast.
Now I can use all of the unique baby items, old-fashioned toys, and classic books that I have been saving through the years.
Now I am able to set a routine for someone that provides security and teaches positive life habits.
Now I will teach the same child, year after year, everything that is on my heart instead of having to say good-bye at the end of the school year.
Now I will finally be able to experience what it is like to write truth on a clean slate, shower love into a brand new heart, and introduce Jesus to an untainted mind.
Now is finally here and I am going to make the most of it!
