who am I? who can I become?

I recently got the boot from teaching the Sunbeams, and got a couple of new callings with the Young Women in our ward. I have quickly fell in love with these young ladies, and truly feel at home with this group. I am so excited to plan girls camp, I do admit I don't know what I am doing. I am going on faith and a prayer, or something like that.

Even though I am not in the presidency or a teacher, I have been invited to attend class and activities. Our lesson this past week was especially good for my lil' soul. 

As the girls answered the question "Who Can I Become?", I loved all of their responses. One girl wants to own a farm, one girl wants to marry a return missionary, one girl wants to have 2 kids. I remember being that age, and hoping for all those things too. 

After they all shared their big, grand goals, I thought of mine. I couldn't help but feel emotional. I am living what I dreamed of, and what an honor that I get to. I didn't always believe I deserved it, or that it would happen for me. Thankfully I have a loving Heavenly Father that has always been watching out for me.

Although being a Wife and a Mother isn't what everyone dreams of, it was my dream. It didn't all come as naturally as I thought it would, but I try every single day to be better than I was the day before. So thankful for the opportunity that I have, and feel especially lucky.
