Coming up on 8 yrs together

My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate 8 yrs of marriage this October 19th. My goodness so much as happened in this time. I look at this picture of a 24 yr old girl and think, "who is this?"
I certainly don't identify with her frivolous spending habits on herself or her ability to sleep in past 11 am on a weekend. This is a girl long gone by now and instead has been replaced with a fretful mother that hovers over her two small sons to keep them from harms way. A mother like most mothers that does everything first for her children and then herself. I sometimes miss the freedom this girl had but in between the chaos of life from picking up my son's trains and changing dirty diapers there is happiness. A crazy happiness that only a mother knows.

Congratulations on your 8th anniversary! I too remember wondering (after becoming a mom) where is Mary? I am wondering if we had similar wondering... I guess we had to change for what we had gone through and what we were becoming... A Mom :) I would say THIS growth we go through over those first years or so is the real "you've come a long way baby".

Father Corapi is coming within 45 minutes of our home in March!!! Have you seen the Journey Home?

Happy Anniversary!

Hugs,
Mary
