Being a decade older now with a 1 year old, I feel I'm much better prepared for this as I've learned contentment and what is really important in life. I cherish the moments with my son as I know how fast they go by and I cherish moments more with my 10 year old daughter as she grows into womanhood in coming years. I'm completely happy with being a mother and a wife. I honestly didn't know it would bring this much joy and with each child I have, it truly does multiply that love as the Duggars so often say. I love my life!!
Being happy with human beings more than fabric is a big one for me. I see so many who are caught up in that girl that I used to be with clothing, material goods and excessive time spent on SELF. However, some seem to never come to that place of realization like I did about what is really valuable. They continue on with this self-centered life and let those best years with their children (or no children) pass them by. WAKE UP I say!! Wake up to realize that the house, redecorating, new outfit, car or whatever it may be, is not the place to find your happiness. Find it in your husband, children and God and you will be able to think on those wonderful days that you were present in their lives when you are old, with lots of time on your hands to THINK about what your life was full of.
