I never thought I was a person who would get such pleasure from doing something someone had told me wasn’t possible, even if I wasn’t planning to do so. I have made some personal and professional decisions over the years based on the supposition that children of my own were a very long shot, at least without serious medical intervention.
This handsome fellow, with his fist in the air says challenge your thoughts, challenge convention. When life places a bend in your path or an “obstacle” you weren’t anticipating. . .take the dive. I have to admit, previously I had been a “keep the status quo” kind of girl, anti-surprise party. . .and a planner ten steps in advance (as a very clumsy child who was placed in ballet as a toddler- plotting your next dozen steps keeps you from tripping and falling). HE has been the most mind blowing and joyous surprise I could have NEVER anticipated.
Part of me would love to pack up Garrett for a visit to the Brody School of Medicine for a hello and visit to some nurses I got to know very well years ago, but I’m so pleased with the (not so, since I’m writing here) silent knowledge that despite some crazy hurdles, insane odds, and what-are-the-chances timing. . .he’s almost here.
To date, Garrett is the best adventure I’ve taken. I can’t wait to see what my cohort and I get into in this next very exciting chapter in my life. So far, he’s been a most excellent and gallant escort while meeting clients and showing homes. 🙂
May you have many exciting new chapters in YOUR life and amazing adventures on your horizon.
