Young Love

This is my son and his beautiful girlfriend, they are only 16.  I see them and I can't help thinking back to when I was 16.  I remember being that age and thinking that everything about my life and my loves were so important, they were not.  I also remember the dreams I had, in my case of becoming a lawyer and having a wonderful marriage and family.  Well, I'm not a lawyer and I don't have a wonderful marriage anymore but I do have three incredible children.  I work a regular desk job, struggle with money worries and I am sometimes overwhelmed taking care of three boys.  It may not be the life I planned when I was 17 but it is my life and I am so grateful for it.  However, no matter how old I get I will never stop coming up with new plans/dreams because change is inevitable.

  1. What a great John Green quote. I must agree that my life isn't what I thought it would be either, but I'm okay with that.
