I always thought I would drive a sporty car.....but I drive a minivan.
I always thought I would move more than once in my married life....but I have lived in the same house for the past 12 years.
I always thought I would be a radio announcer.....but I teach school.
I always thought I would go on another mission trip.....but my last one was decades ago.
I always said I would never say, "Because I said so" when I had my own kids.....but I have.
I always thought I would live in an old farmhouse.....but I, well, don't.
I always said my kids would not play football or cheer....but they both do.
For all of the things I always thought but that never came to pass, I am grateful. For all of the dreams I am still waiting on, I am hopeful. For all of the what-ifs, if-only's and and just maybes that never panned out, I am thankful.
My life is just what it is supposed to be, where it is supposed to be, and how it is supposed to be.
I am blessed.
