...24 little hours.
Sometime very soon there is going to be such a wonderful change happening in my life. I remember back 3 years ago in just 24 hours I went from being Allison Leybas to Allison Lefler. I became someone's wife. My life suddenly became wrapped in someone elses.
This time my name isn't changing, actually it is - I will be someone's mom - but my whole purpose and way of living will suddenly be changed for one small person. I'm hoping that having a baby takes the selfishness out of me. I'm hoping that having a baby makes me become the person that I want to become, not for myself, but because I am his mommy and he deserves the best mommy he can possibly have.
I can't wait for the moment when my thoughts turn from, "What am I going to do today?" to "What are WE going to do today or what does my baby need today?" I pray that I can be the mommy that he deserves and I am honored that Heavenly Father is trusting me with one of his babies.
In 24 hours I will be living the dream I always had as a little girl. I LOVED playing with my dolls; dressing them up, carrying them around, feeding them, being the perfect mommy. Now that dream will be coming to life. I'm actually one of those people who actually had the chance to say that they've lived out one of their dreams.
The next time you see me I will no longer be Allison Leybas Lefler the friend, teacher, wife, daughter that you've always known because I will also have the word MOTHER attached to it and for that I am thankful.
