I was married less than a year after graduating from high school and by 19 I was a mom. I'm sure there were some that shook their heads, maybe whispered that I was too young. I've never felt like I was behind the wheel, so to speak, as far as the direction my life has taken. Not that I have any regrets or would have changed a thing. That's not what I mean, just the opposite. It seems like things have always fallen into place even though I didn't realize it at the time.
I sit here spent, exhausted. My three year old house guest has worn me down. If I ever doubted it before, I am now so convinced that it was a good thing, a very good thing that I had my children young. If only I had known how to sew back then....
A Christmas skirt with an appliqued tee and headband. Do you think her mom will mind if I send her home with a pile of new duds? Tomorrow, I'm thinking she needs a cute little Christmas apron.
This Gratitude Friday, as much as I am enjoying having a little ball of energy zipping through my house, I am so grateful I had my children young.
