Scrap Yourself Challenge Number 6 **Your Most Important Decision*

This challenge over at Scrap Yourself Challenge Blog was my pick this go around. I chose to scrap about the most important decision of my life. Here's my little write up about it:

My challenge is to scrap "Your Most Important Decision In Your Life". I know we all have made them. Maybe it was going back to school?; changing careers?; becoming a stay at home mom; leaving a relationship?; staring a new one?

Whatever it might be, it is likely it has changed you in some way. Mine was to have a child. I wasn't sure about being a mom. I didn't want to be "my mom" or resent having a child. I was almost 41 when I had my little boy. It was a huge decision for me, and it turned out to be the best decision as well.

So, let's here it. What is that "big" decision that change you?

My journaling reads: 

 Having you was the most important decision in my life.  I was so afraid I would turn out to be the mom that "my mom" was to me.  I never wanted to be the kind of mom who put someone else before her child and did not protect them.  I wanted to be a mom where her child knew they were loved above anything else.  It took years of counseling and the belief of others to make me see that I might be a good mom.  I almost waited to late, since I was nearly forty-one when you were born.  I can't tell you how thankful I am that God made it possible to conceive you, Hayden.  You are everything and so much more to me.
