When I wonder why I’m here on this earth, what is my purpose, etc….I need to realize that I have a purpose right now that I’ve never even acknowledged. My beloved cousin said this a while ago but until some other people reiterated it, I never thought about it. I am a stepmother , and though that may not be a huge purpose, it is indeed one. I have been blessed for the last 10 years with a stepson (now 18) and stepdaughter (now 16 – pray for me 🙂 ) I have helped raise them. I never , EVER, would even consider myself anything but a stepparent, they already have 2 wonderful parents. I do think , though, that I’ve added to their lives as they have to mine. I also have become friends with their mother, as well as her family and it’s all been beneficial to the kids. To know that I have helped these 2 kids who’ve come from a divorce, albeit, amicable, is indeed something for me to acknowledge and be proud of. Now, I’m off to figure out what else i can do to be of service to people because that’s what it’s all about. Plus, that helps me get out of my own head where I find myself today, my least favorite day of the week…sorry, Monday !
