I've posted before about how each individual's perception can create an entirely different version of reality. I'm still sold on this idea. I believe it to be truth.
I remember being viewed as a desirable young thing until the day I brought home a baby. From that point forward, I was a mama--and we all know there's nothing like a baby on your hip to put you in an entirely different class on the "hot" scale.
But when you make a choice to be a mother, none of that stuff is important anymore anyway. The choice of motherhood involves having had enough of being preoccupied with your outward appearance, and striving for more important pursuits--like creating a human being and sharing the world as you know it with someone who's interested.
The connection between mother and child is like none other. They may not get along all the time. They may not even like each other all the time. But the connection is always there.
And in the end, you always have each other.
I watched a lot of old movies that profess the same thing of marriage. I'm not seeing it though. I would love to be wrong about this one.
Miss Jessica has a longtime friend in Texas that has been calling quite frequently to get confirmation on her daily wedding plans. They were more than a little put out when I compared a wedding to Thanksgiving dinner--all that planning and its over in 20 minutes.
I'm thinking more preparation should go into planning the marriage, rather than the wedding.
Share your thoughts and sway me, please.
