I can’t wait! Except that I kind of can.

Lately I’ve been feeling that old time ache of wanting to be a mom and a wife. Wanting to be at that point where my life is settled enough that I can handle the responsibility of other lives.

I can’t wait to adopt my babies. I dream all the time about their hair, eyes, and skin that doesn’t match mine. I can’t wait to read books to them. I can’t wait to sing to them. I can’t wait to have a line of kids trekking with me everywhere I go.

I can’t wait to have a husband. Someone to start having adventures that I can share with instead of racking up more stories on my own. I can’t wait to have someone to massage my feet when they are dead from a run. I can’t wait to have my heart safely connected to another heart.

Sometimes I sit and dream for these things, look forward to them happening. Because here’s the thing, I trust and believe that they will happen. Those dreams will come true.

But until then, I have other dreams I need to see come true. I have other goals to set into motion.

Dreaming is wonderful, but believing is better.

  1. You are such an inspiration Leslie. I love reading your posts and I really admire your goals and aspirations for life. I have similar feelings to yours, but I also know that God’s plan is not my plan and all these things will happen when the time is right. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with you in the future! I would love to hear more about what you’ve experienced, the places you’ve been and the people’s lives you’ve touched. Like I said, you are truly an inspiration. I know that you will succeed in everything you do!!

  2. Can’t wait until your kids whose hair, eyes, and skin that doesn’t match you can hang out with my kids whose hair, eyes, and skin doesn’t match mine. I love your dreams. I appreciate your transparency. I miss you!!!
