The busy morning went by and I had to rush off for a haircut. I stopped on the way home for a tasty blended coffee beverage. Mr. Coffee-Man asked if I was doing anything exciting that day. I laughed and told him that I bought a minivan that morning. I told him about how my college roommates and I used to joke around about who would be the first to get a minivan. I said, "I think I just won the game...or lost it depending on how you look at it." He said, "You won. You're just playing a different game."
It's true. I never thought I'd be married with two lovely girls and a minivan to hall us all to playgroup every week. My life is not what I expected but it sure is nice. This Mom Loves perspective.
