How Did I Get Here?

When did I become old enough to make medical decisions on behalf of my husband? When did I become old enough to even be married? When did I become old enough to own my own house?

Am I the only one that feels this way? Can I write an entire post in questions? HA!

Honestly, I sometimes still feel like I'm a kid... but here I am going through life and have amazing responsibilities. I don't even know if I'm qualified sometimes... but this is where I am.

God give me strength... does anyone else sometimes miss the freedom of being a kid?


  1. Yeah. There are times I sit back and wonder "How on earth am I a grown up?" The youth group, thank God, keeps me young!

  2. I don't think I missed being a kid until I became a mom. Then I missed having someone else always clean up the messes! :)

  3. hahaha! Oh yes, I certainly feel like that... often!

  4. Yes, there are many days where I don't want to be the grown-up.

    I haven't dealt with having to make medical decisions for hubby yet, but for my kids. I hate being a mom on those days when they are sick and it is hard to tell if they are sick enough to go to the Dr. (Thankfully they have been pretty healthy)

  5. I've felt like that since the day I turned 16 and was able to drive a car. I was in awe of having a driver's license and driving my mom to work, then me to school, then home again and picking up my mom from work. I guess that was a lot of responsibility for a 16yr old. I never thought of it that way. But, yeah, I was so grateful for being able to drive by myself for probably 2 years until the "newness" actually wore off.

    I think when I had Amarys I was kind of numb and in shock for a bit and I just accepted it. I knew I wasn't "old enough" to have a kid, but I knew I was reponsible enough. It's still the same. I have 2 kids??!! It just sounds weird. I still feel like I'm 23. Eh-age is relative. You ARE the age that you feel, no matter where you are in life. We just need to enjoy we are and don't regret the past and don't worry about the future. It's all ultimately in God's hands anyway. We're just here to make Him happy and do the job he wants us to do - wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, friend. Whatever it is.

    My point it, I know how you feel. I feel like that ALL THE TIME!!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
