Okay. So this is just one of those things that I'm hoping happen to everyone else too. Maggie and I were at the mall and I couldn't resist the lure of the photo booth. But most of the buttons didn't work. When I tried to scroll and change the themes, or just get it to say anything other than, "I freaking love you," yeah...obviously I had no luck. I suppose it could be worse. I do, in fact, freaking love her, and she's freaking adorable - no one can argue that!
I saw a speaker this week, Eleni Kalakos of Eleni Speaks. At a meeting I attended on Tuesday we saw an abbreviated version of her Touch the Sky presentation. At the time, it was nice. She's a great singer and speaker, and I chuckled more than once at her recollections of being a teen-aged girl and then a young woman trying to follow her life's purpose and dream. All I could think, though, was that at this time and stage in my life, Maggie IS my purpose. I can't be running around chasing any other dream, even if I could tell you I had another dream. When I got home was when Eleni's words really sunk in. I want Maggie to feel 'cosmic goosebumps' and follow her dreams. Nothing I could think of for myself could top that. And a small part of me wasn't sure if this is good or bad. Am I still supposed to have dreams besides being a mother and wife? Will I have these sort of dreams when I'm not 'needed' by a little one 24/7? What do you think?
