5 Months ago I was a teacher. Like a real life teacher in a real life classroom. I was that kind of teacher for 5 years. I say “that kind” because I know technically I still am a teacher. Just a different kind. I will teach my children everything there is to know about life and loving Jesus. Teach Maximus (puppy number one) to do cool tricks, and hopefully teach Bruce Wayne (puppy number two) to use the restroom outside. There was a time in my life when I thought I would be a classroom teacher until my hair was grey and I needed a cane to walk around. I thought that I was made for it. And I believe that I was for a season. I loved that job. (most days.)
But now, being at home and watching Judah go from a tiny infant to a real baby boy and eventually to a toddler and on and on, I have never felt more like myself. Brandon and I were in the car the other day and he pointed out how goofy I was acting. I looked him square in the face and told him that this was the “real me” that I used to be the bogged down version of myself and this was the girl he actually married. He laughed because that is only partially true, but that is how I felt at that moment.
Maybe the place where you are right now is the place you will be until you go to be with Jesus. Maybe in five years your life will look completely different, heck maybe in five minutes. But what I can be sure of is that God has a plan for you, and it’s a good one, and I am thankful that right now my plan includes this guy…(that’s my father in law’s voice you here.)
