Beautiful Heartbreak

A little more than a year ago, my Dad dropped me off at the Cincinnati airport for the last time as a single woman. I could barely look at him in the eye because it was like I was saying goodbye to my daddy for the last time as a little girl–thinking everything was about to change. He jokingly, but holding back tears, said to me, “You can stay here, you know?” We grinned, I gave him another hug, and said goodbye.

It was weird leaving my home that day knowing that the next time I’d be married. I was worried about how things would be in the future. I was content where I was. But things worked out and getting married was the best decision I’ve ever made.

So, here I was on Tuesday afternoon. I took a walk down the beautiful street I grew up in, standing between my parents. The thought came to my mind how next time I’d walk down that road I’d be a mother. Next time I visit Kentucky, I’ll have a baby. Everything will change.

Sometimes changes seem so scary to me. It’s not that I don’t want those changes to occur, I just get nervous thinking how they’ll affect the rest of my life.

But change is good. Looking back, change is good.


You probably have seen this video, as it’s making its way through Facebook and the blogosphere right now. It’s not my usual music style, but the video is so touching and the lyrics are very motivational. Enjoy.
