|Me on my first day becoming a woman. Don't I look so much more womanly?|
Today is a very special day.
That is because today I officially became a woman.
I didn't hit puberty.
I didn't lose my virginity. (Oh, so scandalous!)
I didn't find out I'm pregnant.
I didn't fall in love.
I didn't suddenly discover my purpose in life.
I didn't start my first real job.
No, no. I didn't do any of those things today.
What happened was of far more significance.
It happened in the kitchen. I was trying to make soup. The recipe called for minced garlic, chicken boullion, an onion, italian sausage, potatoes, and crushed red peppers.
And do you know what?
I had all of those ingredients. Already. On hand. In my house.
A year ago I didn't even know what it means to mince garlic and I had no idea that such a thing as chicken boullion even existed. The most time I had ever spent in the kitchen was to heat up some Sizzler left overs. And here I am now, practically a professional chef having chicken boullion on hand!
Can you believe the miracle?
I have officially entered womanhood.
