Well hello there and welcome to my live Journal. This is my first entry and I'm still not too sure how to maneuver the site so please bear with me.
A little about me:
I am 46 years old with three children. A daughter that will be 22 next month, a son that will be 20 this week and a son who just turned 17. It doesn't matter how old they get they still keep you busy. Or as my mother told me...the children get older and the worries get bigger. How true. No more worrying about whether they will leave the yard, go into the street, fall and hurt themselves, now we get to worry about things like...will they get in the car with a drunk driver? Experiment with drugs? Yes, mom you were right, the worries do get bigger.
Okay so by now you have concluded that I love to talk about children and raising children. Maybe because that is one thing I feel very strongly about. I always wanted children and when they came along I put everything into raising them. Not that I neglected everything else but I took my role as a mother very seriously. After all, these children depended on me.
One of my favourite quotes I would like to share with you and if you give it some thought it is so true. We have the ability to shape the future, to mold future society, within reason of course. We can't control everything. Here it is:
"A hundred years from now it will not matter the house I lived in, the car I drove or the size of my bank account....but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child." - think about it.
Until next time....Trish
