My husband found this on Rebecca's blog and told me I had to stop everything and read it. He was right. Be sure to also read the comments. The original entry is 4500 words, so give yourself some time.
I knew from a very young age that the most important thing for me was to be a mommy. I refused to date guys who didn't like children - and it was easy to test the guys. I simply brought them to my house and asked them to keep an eye on a sibling or two.
I knew that there were other things I would be called to - but motherhood was #1. I don't wear make-up, don't buy fancy shoes, don't understand 'fashion' at all. But I still managed to find a man to marry who, after 31 years plus, still keeps me warm at night. Not bad, not bad at all.
