Question #1

So another blogger that I follow over at Raising Miss Mommy is doing this “Questions to ask yourself” series.  She answers a question every day, for 365 days.  I think this is a great idea, although I can’t commit to doing one each day but I can do one each week.
My main purpose for doing this is for Mia to look back on.  I have this irrational fear that if something happened to me, Mia would not remember me.  I want her to know me.  I want her to see what we did, when we did it, etc. 
So here goes:
Would you rather be a worried genius, or a joyful simpleton?
EASY!  A joyful simpleton.  I definitely wouldn’t call myself a genius, but I pretty much have the worry thing perfected.
I have spent the vast majority of my life worrying. Over little things and big things.  I feel like if I don’t have something to worry about, I’m doing something wrong, or I’m missing something.  This is definitely a struggle for me.
And guess what worried people do? They go to NURSING SCHOOL! They go to school to learn about all of the things that CAN go wrong and the deadly illnesses you CAN get.
Seriously?  Seriously.
The whole time (I do mean the WHOLE time) I was pregnant with Mia, I worried about her having the strangest, most rare disorders.  Then when she was born, you know the story, I started fearing the worst.
I honestly remember once we brought her home, I noticed her little fuzzy forehead and the first thought that went through my mind was “Oh my gosh, she has that Wolfman syndrome!”  (I don’t even know if that’s what it is called) I am absolutely out of my mind y’all!
Despite what it may look like, I do have faith in God and my faith, thankfully, is getting stronger every day.  I’m not quite as crazy as I used to be :)
So, the answer is simple. 
I would much rather be a JOYFUL SIMPLETON!
I would love for you to join in on this fun with me…
What would you rather be?
