    Life has surprised me by how much I enjoy being a mom. When I was younger, I wasn’t sure I would ever have kids. Now I can’t imagine not!

    “In what way has life surprised you the most?”
    Oh, my gosh. That’s a huge question for me! There isn’t one single thing that I can name; it’s hard to put a finger on. It’s more like, How things have turned out. (For reference, I’m in my mid-30s.) I seemingly did Everything Right, and excelled at everything that I put my mind to, and yet here I am– at absolutely the worst possible low. And, I (along with those closest to me) have no idea how to get out of it.

    Life surprised me by how hard it is, hard to have a balance, time to yourself fun things, missing out on things, some jealousy maybe.

    Life has surprised me in that the world does not care about you. The world is never against you. Some things you can’t control and instead of being miserable about it, change the way you feel about it and move on to things that do make you happy.

    I believe it is in looking back and seeing how things just fit in a certain order. Like if this (something) didn’t happen something not so good would have happened. It is seeing the Hand that does take care of you. Gives me much more faith when life is certainly uncertain. Like if it is a good thing, or even what you think is a bad thing, Circumstances turned out alright perhaps even better, when at first they scared me.

    I feel like life is constantly surprising me, but I feel like right now I’m most surprised by my ability to handle things in a crisis. I’ve always felt like I would be too stress/anxious to function in an emergency situation, but a few things recently have shown me that I can actually take care of what I need to when it comes down to it.

    Life surprised me in the moments leading up to and after my birth. My mom needed an emergency C-Section to save her life (and mine!); while I was healthy, her heart stopped, but was restarted. Life is, more often than not, cruel, but it can also be kind. The cruelty makes the kind parts sweeter.

    I suppose life has surprised me most if I think about how much I can love my children. I mean I knew I would love them…duh! But, I didn’t understand when that little booger was growing inside of me how much I would give up, how much I would protect them. I guess I didn’t even know I had that much love in me! God bless everyone!

    Honestly? I could say a bunch of flowery stuff and be all nostalgic and zen, but I won’t. Life amazes me with how crappy it can get. Life sucks, we deal with it as best we can and get on with it. I’m not saying their aren’t good things that happen, but it’s not all rainbows and unicorns.

  80. Jennifer Boehme
    November 15, 2017 at 1:09 pm

    Life has surprised me by not being what I thought it was going to be like when I was so little. People passed away, and not house with white picket fence i always colored. Still, it’s a good life.

  81. Kortney Lah
    November 15, 2017 at 2:55 pm

    The fact that I have so many friends surrounding me that are willing to help in any way they can, when I never tought they would.

    November 15, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    I guess I’s have to say that the biggest surprises in my life can be seen and understood in retrospect. Many of the things that I prayed for- or really wanted to happen- didn’t happen. This saved me from a lot of troubles and grief.

  83. Juanita May
    November 15, 2017 at 8:52 pm

    That there are more good people than I thought there were. When I needed help, many people stepped forward and offered help.
