yesterday was my first baby's 28th birthday..she has grown into a lovely young woman that i am so proud of!! she has 2 jobs, makes time for herself, and is such a pleasure to be around!!
Sometimes you just sit back and say..hey i did a good thing. All those times if i wondered if i was being too strict, or holding my kids to too high standards, have evaporated from my mind. I look at my 3 kids who are hard working, kind, caring, and strong and think...yeah..it was good to set limits and have rules.
I see so many kids now that have so much...cellphones and ipods and handheld games. my kids didnt have them. they had animals...and thats all i could afford. horses and goats and kittens..,lol..and wide open spaces and woods and lakes to explore.
I gave up the benefits of living in town for the benefits of nature..and i am so very glad i did...
