All opinions are 100% mine.
The good, the bad, and the ugly.
However, waking up every single day and choosing for us to be Celebrating Good, that's what matters.
Just like Julia - The Happiest Daughter
"Life" happened to me at the age of 19 when I found out I was pregnant. As you can imagine, this was a huge life change for not only myself but for my family as a whole. Although being pregnant at a young age was hard, it wasn't terrible. I knew had I gone into this hoping for the best and having the best attitude possible, I would be able to come out of this stronger than before, and I did.
Growing up I always knew my mother was an amazing woman. Raising 6 kids, working full time, and always making sure we had dinner as a family was never an easy task. When I got pregnant my mom was, for obvious reasons, disappointed. I knew she wanted more for my life and she was afraid I was compromising those dreams she had for me. My mom and I have become tremendously closer since the birth of my daughter and I am so grateful for that. Now as a wife and mother myself, I have taken so many great lessons from her and applied them to my life. One thing my parents always did was making sure we had dinner together as a family, every single night. Looking back on it, that was my biggest joy. As an adult I realize not many families did/do that. And as an adult I make it a point to have dinner made and on the table so we can have dinner together, as a family.
My mom is my hero. She has taught me so many amazing life lessons and I hope to be half the wife and mother she is. Not only is she an amazing mom, but she is an extrodianry grandma. I love seeing the bond she has with not only my daughter but my nephews as well.
