If I weren't a mother right now, I would love to be in some sort of humanitarian job abroad.... once the boys are grown and leading lives of their own, I will be doing that.

In reality, I am a 29 year old  married SAHM mom of 2 wonderful sons! And loving every minute of it!

If I werent a wife & a mother right now I am not even sure I would be alive.

Before hubs and I were married I was headed down a very destructive path. I dont share this alot but why not. I was a drug addict. Coke. Pot. Whatever it was I didnt care and i drank every. single. night. i made a ton of bad choices. I had a 2 month marriage to a man who I didnt even love.

Yes I know it sounds stupid but its the truth. My husband came back into my life and saved me, literally, in every way. I am grateful that he still loves me and he gave me a reason to live.

I don't think this sounds stupid at all. I tell my dh if it wasn't for my ds and him I would be insane, lol! They deffinitely keep me sane and happy! I wouldn't want my life any other way, so I have never really thought about where I would be without them.

It is scary to think how different my life was. I cant even imagine what it would be like now but I assume I would be dead, in jail or worse.

If I weren't a mother right now, I would probably be an alcoholic just like my dad, before my son I drank 6 nights a week, smoked cig. and pot and hung out with all the wrong people....when i found out I was pregnant I quit drinking, smoking, everything...now i drink an occational glass of wine once in a while to relax and that is about it I still don't smoke or would even think about drugs....my son is my angel and he saved my life from destruction I have no doubt in my mind that I was meant to have him <3

. (((hugs))) I'm so glad you found something else to live for. I'm sorry to hear about your past, that's really rough. But i'm sure it's comforting knowing that your little family saved you from all of that.

Thank You mama. My daughter & my husband are my reason for living now. I love them both so much that I cant believe I tried to wreck my life that way.

I feel the same way. I grew up the child of a police officer..thought in many ways that I was above the law--definitely thought of myself as indestructible..through a series of events and meeting my husband my life somehow got shoved on track!
