What's Wrong With Us That We're So Unamused?
Perspective.
Sometimes I think about all the things I haven't done in my life. I think about the lack of education, my weight, my lack of friends, my lack of voice and how much I'd love to give a few choice people a piece of my mind, and how long it took me to find love - so long, that after almost 3 years, I still have troubles being the woman I should be to him.

But then I think about him, and I think about our son. I think of all the love he has given me, and all the smiles my son has for us. I think of him telling me he'll marry me someday, and I think of my son reaching his little arms out to me for security, love, and maybe a quick little toss in the air.

My point is, no matter how bad things seem, or how much you think you missed out on...one day, something will come along, and that one thing can mean a world of difference.

I don't feel the need to dwell on things like missed education or weight loss; I can always go back to these things if I want to. I don't need a lot of friends, because the select couple that stuck around are all I need in my quiet yet hectic life. I don't need to be some raging woman, yelling at people who have wronged me; It's a waste of breath, and a waste of time...just like them. And last, but not least, love comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and forms.

The love we have for one another is our own. It is designed specifically for us, and should we ever feel the need to alter it, then we will. Love is not cookie cutter, and it comes from the places you least expect. It comes from a simple gesture, a cuddle, a look. Love comes from my son's tiny eyes and tiny hands, and the hugs he has learned to give those who mean the most to him. Love comes from my son's drooly kisses and his outstretched hands when he tries to share his cheerios.

I may not live the perfect life as defined by everyone else, but I live a pretty perfect life as defined by me.
