The Gypsy Mama . We receive a one word writing prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is TRUE.
True stories. What do I share? I read many stories mama bloggers write. I laugh and I cry as they share. They encourage one another. They teach one another. I love how they help one another realize they are not alone. There are many mamas trying to do their best out there.
But ...I am not a mama.
It's something I always wanted to be. I dreamed about having a family since I was a little girl. I played school in my upstairs bedroom with all of my dolls lined up on the window seat. My little sister Christine was plopped right in the middle of them all.
I imagined a story book life; loving husband, several little ones and a house with a white picket fence. But my life didn't turn out that way. I've certainly had an exciting life in so many ways but it wasn't what I planned.
But God intervened in my life. He took my circumstances and made something beautiful. Because He is God and He is good. He has plans for my life.
I have a loving husband. Even though I wasn't able to have children, I have many nieces and nephews. And I've been placed in a preschool classroom with many children to love.
What can I say that's true? God is good.
Blessings and love,
