Lately it feels like there isn’t a number high enough to count my blessings. Happiness in my life has been a crescendo. Just when I thought it was as good as it got, bam!, it somehow got better. Last night, while putting Lil Z-Bear to bed, I thought about my happiest moments in my adult life, and they were so easy to identify:
May 2003 – My college graduation. It was a proud and fulfilling moment. I could not wait to jump in and see what life had ahead for me.
July 12, 2008 – My wedding day. They say your wedding day is the happiest day of your life – Well, it’s a cliché for a reason. Whether you choose a big celebration, or an intimate affair, what isn’t amazing about celebrating your love with all the people in your life that matter most to you.
June 20, 2010 – The day Lil Z-Bear was born. And truly, every single day after it, because every day has made us fall deeper into love with this little boy. I can’t even begin to describe how it felt when we became parents for the first time. I have plans to do a post on Lil Z-Bear’s birth story soon, because I am afraid that time will erase the crystal clear memory I have of the day Lil Z came into this world.
So what’s next? God willing, the day we welcome a second, and perhaps a third child into our life. Or Lil Z’s graduation, his wedding day, or perhaps the day we get to hold our grandchildren in our arms. I can’t wait.
