things im looking forward to...

inspiration: mother's day.

i can't wait to be a mother. granted, i don't plan on being one for a while, but after seeing all the happy mothers in Grace Acres and kids giving their moms cards and flowers and such, i just can't wait to enjoy that season of life.

things have changed a lot for me over the past year. outlook, goals, dreams, aspirations. when i was in high school, i couldn't even fathom being married until i was like 27 or 28 (lol). but after having experienced love and all its wonders (and rollercoaster rides =P), i can't wait to be married. i can't wait to find someone to spend the rest of my life with and to create and share lasting memories with. and as much as i long for that, i know that God has someone for me. and all i can do right now is to wait patiently and to pray for him, wherever he is and whatever he is doing.

a year ago (and before), i couldn't imagine being a mother. as hard as it is, i just didn't even know if i wanted to have kids. i thought "yeah, maybe one. MAYBE!". but my heart has DEFINITELY been changed (especially since volunteering in Grace Acres). i have a long way to go before then, though. i have some growing up to do and lots to learn before i can even fathom being a mother, but i know that the rewards will outweigh all the fear and anxiety and apprehension i'm experiencing now.

but to all the mothers out there. and to those who are mother-figures. and to any and every woman who has had an impact on a child: Happy Mother's Day!! =D
