As woman there are many mile markers in our lives. When we "hit" puberty, or rather it hits us. Then again at sweet sixteen. And for some when we become 21 it is our first "legal" opportunity to become inebriated. When those that have chosen to join in holy matrimony say "I do", they usually don't realize what they "did" till later. Then of course when babies come there's no turning back or looking back actually, cause life will fly by in a matter of years.
I myself have recently hit a mile marker and feel I am more officially a woman. Here I am on the doorstep of turning 32 and I have 4 children and am happily married these almost nine years, and am only now "becoming a woman".
How has that happened? You say. Well we just moved to Texas for my huband to finish seminary after more than a decade on the mission field. WOW, decade sounds so long! And we are renting our first house together, well as a family...you understand. It is the first time I have been able to make our home our home. So I realized that I am experience what a lot of woman may take for granted. Closets...oooh! Carpet...wow...I get to vacuum! And my personal favorite...the tub!Aaaah! Calgon take me away! It also made me realize that there maybe other woman who are late bloomers too. and that's ok...cause so am I.
