Being an Older Mom

I was just reading this blog at MSN about the advantages of being an older mom. I had my daughter four months before I turned 40 and had my son this past November, just shy of 42. If I had gotten married and had children back in my twenties when I thought I would, I never would have enjoyed the life and freedom I did: travelling where I wanted when I wanted; trips to Jamaica, Austria, Hungary; three years living in Italy; buying a home, getting out of debt, publishing a book, making mistakes and learning life lessons… Not only have I done more than friends my age, I’ve done more and forgotten half of what most people probably never even dream about – period. I have no regrets for what I ‘could’ve, should’ve, would’ve done’… I did it and now I will not be afraid to let my children live their lives, knowing what possibilities lie before them. I learned that no dream is too big or unrealistic to achieve. I am grateful that my dreams were so much bigger than selfish desires. By reaching out for selfless goals, I taught, helped, encouraged and inspired others. I have nothing but joy when meditating on past accomplishments…as I presently am now immersed in “What’s that?” questions, spilled milk and poo poo diapers. No matter what the future brings, I’ll always have Italy.
