Here or There? Decisions are Everywhere.

I have been blessed beyond measure.

I have a wonderful husband who would do almost anything for me & our family.

I have the sweetest little boy who could cheer up a room no matter what.

I have a great family who stands by me in the best & worst of times.

I have an amazing group of friends, each whom contribute and benefit my life in their own ways.

I have a roof over my head, a reliable vehicle, a warm bed, and food in my fridge.

I find myself wondering sometimes if I took a left instead of a right in my life choices would I be where I am today?

5 years ago I was suppose to start the early childhood education program at Holland College. If I hadn’t worn flip flops to work and fell would I have completed my volunteer & CPR and been able to attend, would I be a different person today?

3.5 years ago I married Michael. Someone recently asked if I regretted getting married at 19. Absolutely positively not. If I didn’t truly feel like Michael was the man I was suppose to marry I wouldn’t have done it at 19 or 29. However if our lives were in different places then would we have made that commitment?

3 years ago I met one of the most amazing friends I ever could have asked for. What if neither of  us had applied for a job with Stokes? We’ve already been through a lot together and I couldn’t ask for a better best friend! (and I guess her boyfriend is pretty cool too!)

1.5 years ago I gave birth to a precious little boy whom changed my world. What if I changed the events that led up to his conception? Would he be here? I couldn’t even begin to imagine my life without him.

1 year ago we made the decision to pack up and move provinces and it’s been a roller coaster  ride ever since. If we hadn’t made that decision where would we be today?

I fully believe that there is a plan for my life but often stop and wonder if at any point over the past 23 years of my life if there had been different decisions made who would I be today?

The decisions that Michael & I make over the remainder of our lives will impact who our children turn out to be. That is a lot of pressure as we begin to discuss our options after Michael is done of school, but then I remember that I have been blessed beyond measure so no matter what decisions we make I can just pray that my children will experience the same outpouring of love and support I have received.
