All of the things we’ve been through, so many decisions we’ve made, all seem like precursors, the introduction, to this big story.
I thought I might be embarrassed about things that have happened to me, choices I have made. Mostly, I am not.
I feel like now I am at a culmination of all of the things I have learned along the way.
Hopefully, the pitfalls I have been through before will help me to be a better parent. They have forced me to grow in ways I did not want to, and I now feel ready to grow in a whole new way.
The Shawn Colvin song keeps running through my head.
All roads are leading to you…
