Thriving In The Unknown
I'm a little more than two years into the unknown and it is more familiar and wonderful than ever.
Sure, there are times when I feel like I don't know what I'm doing, but I have Elias' little hand in mine and we are loving our walk together.
There is beauty in not knowing. I have surprises to look forward to everyday. There is no book to tell me when my son will begin talking or walking. No blogs to give me a timeline of when Elias will read, write, or use the potty for the first time. But can I be honest with you? I feel privileged not knowing.
When Elias accomplishes all those wonderful things (and he will) I will be proud. And cry. And jump up and down. And who knows what else.
Sometimes life has us waiting a little longer for something we want. But when it comes, we know and understand something that is hard to see unless we go through the wait.
I've been blessed with details in life that I never noticed before. I've learned to be patient and content. I don't settle for less, I just see life through a different lens. I would not trade this lens for anyone else's, it is perfect for me and perfect for Elias.
