It's our first T21 Tuesday!
Feel free to link up with your own blog post regarding the prompt, "If someone had only told me."
If someone had only told me the highs would be higher and the lows would be lower.
The good would be better and the bad would be worse than I could ever imagine.
The heartbreaks would seem to hurt more, but the healing would hold more meaning.
If someone had only told me it wasn't that big of a deal.
Life is unpredictable and, therein, lies the journey.
Every step of the way, you will learn more, feel more fully and discover the hidden treasures of love and life.
If someone had only told me your life would change mine forever more, I would smile as if I knew exactly what they meant, even when I had no idea.
Your struggles still break my heart. But your accomplishments send my mommy-heart flying high!
If someone had only told me that it was going to be okay, I would have laughed at them.
But my someones held out truth and honesty. They held out the good and the bad. They held out the reality of what life would REALLY be like and prepare me for all you would bring my way.
Ironically, their reality grounded me and prepared me for the not so great parts of what you would bring. But their promises of the good you would bring paled in comparison to the reality of you.
And I am thankfully, each and every day, that I was chosen to be your mom.
Now, it's your turn! Link Up!
