The Most Influential People
Dirty diapers, screaming kids, baby food, and no sleep is just what I imagine when I envision my future. Not everyone can understand this life-style. These people are the few who are adorned with a special job title: Mother.
I’ve always entertained the thought of being a stay-at-home-mom, but it wasn’t until I met Jennie that I really embraced this dream. A mother of six beautiful children, Jennie lives, breathes, and loves motherhood. While she was pregnant with her sixth child, Madeline, I was roped into a shopping trip to Old Navy. I had never spent much time with Jennie prior to spending the afternoon with her and her five kids. This excursion was an eye opener for my future life. I hadn’t wanted a huge family before meeting Jennie and her husband Jeff; my desires have changed for the larger. The trip went on, maternity jeans were purchased, and a life-long friendship was formed.
Jennie has inspired me to not only be stronger Christian but to have a passion to prepare for marriage and motherhood. Her influences in my life have made me a better human being and servant for the Lord. She has opened my eyes to the world of Homeschooling, garage-saling, and much more. For that, I am forever grateful. Jennie has become one of the most influential people in my life and in turn, has become my best friend; not many people get to have this adventure in life. I’m so glad I got to spend it with her. Because of Jennie, I have become a valuable, stronger, more passionate person.
*** I don't even like to think of where my heart would be without you Jenn! ***
