If I thought of who I was 4 years ago, I never ever ever ever would’ve guessed I’d be who I am today.

4 years ago I couldn’t find the vegetable aisle at the supermarket if my life depended on it. I thought a great meal was finding dollar frozen meals at the supermarket. I thought my mom was crazy the day she talked about eating organic food and told her she might as well just burn her money. 4 years ago I would feel pity when I saw someone in a wheelchair.

Today I look at who I am becoming and I honestly wonder where this person came from! How is it that someone who ate her first vegetable at the age of 18 is now almost fully following a GFCF diet? How is it that someone who doesn’t know her lungs from her kidneys can play “doctor” to a little boy?

Other times I feel that my whole life has been a preparation for who I am becoming. I remember moments of knowing that I was being “made ready” for something big, huge…to be Nathan’s mother. So many events only make sense when I see them from the perspective of being Nathan’s mom.

And you know what… I wouldn’t change a thing about who I am becoming, who Nathan is shaping me into. Being Nathan’s mom is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
