Have you ever looked at your life and wondered "How in the world did I get here?" It doesn't have to be in a negative context, but just "How did life happen to turn out like this?". Sometimes I stand back and look at my 3 little boys with their red hair and big brown (and blue) eyes and wonder "How did I get to be a mommy?" I know this sounds silly, but if you've ever experienced this, you know what I mean. I have a husband in the Coast Guard, we are living in Alabama, I am not just a mother, but a BoyMamma of 3 boys! How am I in the Primary Presidency, how is Kit the Young Men's President...how did I come to have saggy boobs and a saggy belly?!! As a girl in Utah, attending Sky View High, this wasn't what I expected my life to be. I wouldn't have known to dream up such an existence!
And yet...how did I not dream of the best possible life for me? How did I not see that I live each day full of love for my 3 little beasties?! How did I not dream a life by the water, enjoying the fishing, beaching and waves? How did I not dream of a husband full of love for me, one who is CRAZY sometimes, but excuses me my craziness, too? How did I not see a future of a husband in the service, which would create a strong patriotism inside?
I am SO very thankful to my Heavenly Father for helping me find the best possible dream to come true! I might not see the ins and outs or the hows and whys, but I do see the Lord's hands in my life. How very grateful I am for a Heavenly Father who loves me and guides me in this twisty-turny life!!!
