If I look back at my life before Kennedy, when it was just David and I…
Slower, like living in the country instead of the city, no rush.
There was this thing called FREE time.
I didn’t feel guilty for going to the gym or dinner with a friend, or anywhere.
I stayed up later, but got more sleep.
I spent more time with David.
I read books
I had hardly any responsibility and we could do anything, go anywhere… whenever.
I didn’t have a laundry list of things to do just to get ready for the next day.
I could keep going… but I’ll stop.
There are days when I miss how laid back our life used to be.
When all the things that need to be done will take far more time than I have.
When all I really want to do is sit on the couch and do nothing.
As much as I cherish that time, just the two if us. Even though I’ll always think back to it and smile. My life before Kennedy isn’t worth going back to for a second.
Creating a family. Holding your baby in your arms. Watching them grow.
I understand now why God says that children are a blessing.
Life is harder now. Absolutely. More responsibility. Less time. But. My heart is so full of love and my time is so much better spent. A baby changes everything.
And it’s so worth it.
Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.
Psalm 127:3 NLT
