Spent a little time this morning snuggling my baby boy on this final day of single-motherhood.
It's been just him and I for nearly 6 years, and I am so thankful for every single moment of laughter and every solitary tear of exhaustion.
The first chapter of James tells us to "Consider it pure joy when you face trials of many kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let it finish its work in you, that you may be mature and complete..."
Let me tell ya; many people read those words and just don't get it. --I GET IT.
I would go back and do it all over again, just to be who I am today; all over again.
I wouldn't say that I'm complete, and a lot of days I wouldn't even say that I'm mature....;) But my faith has certainly been tested, and I'm still here.
Tomorrow I become MRS. Cherri Rodriguez. Look out world....
