I Can No Longer...

"At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It's like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it's not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you , and once in a while people may even take your breath away."  (Grey's Anatomy)

My life takes my breath away everyday... Not always because of the best reasons, but always because my life has true meaning and reason!

I am not sure if it is simply the fact that I now am a mother, or that being pregnant royally messed up my hormones, but I can no longer watch just about any movie, or show without crying.  During my pregnancy that is typical, but I really truly thought that it would change once my beautiful babies were safely in our world, but it has not!  Every emotion is heightened and that is not always a good thing.  I seem to have higher happy and lower lows!  I even cried while re-reading Eclipse!  Which brings me to my post today...

Things I can no longer do since having children

- I can no longer pee in private
- I can no longer read "I'll Love you Forever" without crying
- I can no longer fit in my favourite jeans
- I can no longer go the entire day with clean clothes
- I can no longer sleep in
- I can no longer plan more than a couple days ahead
- I can no longer hear and pay attention to most of church meetings


- I can no longer imagine my life ANY OTHER WAY!

so so true! Sometimes I think I'll make it through I'll Love you Forever, but gets me everytime. Children are totally worth it!
