Week 14: A Picture of Someone You Could Never Imagine Your Life Without

IMG_3558

I can’t imagine my life without any of my kids, but I am going to spotlight Steven for now.  When I graduated from high school I had this plan to go to college, go on a mission, graduate from college, get married and then have kids.  Things turned out a little differently than I planned as Darrell proposed a year to the day of my high school graduation. Even after Darrell and I got married, our original plan was to start having kids after we both graduated with our Bachelor’s Degrees..  So when the Lord told us we needed to start trying to have kids only 3 months after we got married, it required a large leap of faith, more on my part than Darrell’s.  So – instead of my original life plan of going on a mission at age 21, I become a mom at age 21.  But I wouldn’t trade my life for anything now.  This little boy paved the way for our growing family and his sweetness brightens each and every one of my days.
