Congratulations to Anna, winner of yesterday’s T-shirt and mug!
Oh I love this sign. The first thing I thought when I came across this quote was: This is me. This is my quote. Because over six years ago, I thought I knew how my life was going to turn out. I thought I was going to have a baby with my husband the way everyone else seemed to do. But I didn’t. Olivia came after six years. After five IVFs. After hundreds of injections. After tens of thousands of dollars, three babies in Heaven, two trips across the country, and finally, a life threatening condition that resulted in a six day hospital stay.
Back in 2009, I thought I knew how things would turn out. But life had a better idea. Maybe not an easier idea. But a better one. Olivia was MUCH better idea.
And the thing I love about this quote is that we can all relate to it. One of my very close friends escaped an abusive relationship and is now happily married to a wonderful man. Another friend dropped out of a college program, but doors opened for her and she is now in an incredible job that wouldn’t have come to her if she stayed in her major.
Does this quote resonate with you, too? And isn’t this wood gorgeous?
