Isn't it every young girls dream to go to college, get married, travel to Europe and various other places for a few years, have a little girl with big blue eyes and blonde ringlets, and then have boy/girl twins? Oh, and buy and renovate a house with your hunky (but completely dorky too!!) hubby? There may have been some twists and turns a long the way...a good bit of suffering...but, WOW, looking at my life written out I'd say I'm living the dream. (And yes, these were all taken by me.)
Ella's latest thing that she likes to come tell me several times a day is "Mommy, God is soooooooo good!"
Have I mentioned that I LOVE this girl? Her innocence and joy for life help me get through these really hard and tiresome days. Her vocabulary has really expanded and we actually have real conversations now. I have decided that 2 & 1/2 is my new favorite age. She still needs me and wants me, I have once again become her best bud, and she is absolutely hysterical! She is constantly cracking me up from sunrise until sunset.
And, although my life is beyond exhausting and hard right now...
It is so, so sweet.
Living the dream. Who would have thought this several months ago?...
Yes, Ella, God is soooooo good!
