Did you know mommyhood is the best thing I have ever done? I love it more and more every day. I am so lucky. I get to spend my days with Ty. I know everything about him. He knows me. We have a happy life.
All that being said, every time I see an airplane flying across a clear blue sky, I am filled with a bittersweet wistfulness. And don’t even ask me how it feels to watch a plane take off. More often than not, I find myself fighting back tears. You see, before I had Ty, I was a flight attendant. And I loved it. I miss putting on my uniform and walking through the airport with my luggage rolling behind me. I miss spending every night in a different city. The right choice for us was for me to put aside my career and stay home. The right choice is not always the easy choice. I have to remind myself it is a gift to have the memories. I’ve seen the world. (Well, not all of it, but a lot of it!) I’ve had dreams come true. I’m smiling because it happened.
