Baby Steps

I waited anxiously for years for this... who could ever ask for anything more?

Contemplative Abe  : )
It took A LOT of patience and hoping in order to arrive at this much anticipated stage of life without losing my sanity.

Once the seed for little man was planted I waited more; nine months of dreaming and hoping and pure excitement. That last month and then a bit was dreadful. I've never wanted something so much. Never had anything been right at my finger tips yet so very unattainable. But now he's here. I made it through.

Now that he's here I couldn't be happier. I couldn't be more blessed. But learning to be a mom is just another step in this journey of waiting and patience. In the middle of the night when he's screaming for no apparent reason... more waiting and patience.

REALLY good things come to those who wait and to those who endure. I've a long road of financial struggle ahead of (and behind) me. It's not what I'd call a fun journey traversing this road of financial responsibility and trying to climb from the pit we've dug but I know the finish line will feel SOOOOOO sweet!

Just keep baby stepping (like the tortoise) and this race will be won! I'm certain of it.

Those are my thoughts for today.
