I DO NOT RECALL HAVING ANY ACTUALLY DESIRES TO BE ANYTHING WHEN I WAS A KID. BUT FROM MY EARLY TEENS TILL I GOT PREGNANT WHEN I WAS 20, I WANTED TO BE A TRUCK DRIVER. WELL, SINCE YOU CAN'T DRIVE A TRUCK AS A PROFESSION WITH 3 CHILDREN, THAT IDEA KIND OF LEFT MY MIND. NOW, AFTER 35 PLUS YEARS OF DRIVING CHILDREN & DH AROUND ALL THE TIME, I HATE DRIVING. emoticon emoticon

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU!!

When I was really young, I don't think I had any particular goals or dreams. At some point as a teenager, I thought I might become a world famous mathematician. Later the true dream of my life surfaced -- to be a good mother. I discovered that wasn't very easy since I kept having miscarriages. Finally after many prayers and heartaches, I did become a mother and discovered it was a full time job that wasn't very simple, especially since my first child had Asperger's, but wasn't diagnosed for quite a while, since even doctors didn't know about the autism spectrum at that time and just knew about the very severe cases that were low-functioning. When you have a genius that also has the repetitive behaviors of autism, the doctors didn't know what that was.

I did go on to have 6 children interspersed with more miscarriages. It became easier with practice to effectively function as a mother.

When I try to think of my answer to this question, I don't remember having firm goals. I DO remember having many fantasies about what I'd like to do when I grew up. I have many fantasies where I am performing in either a Ballet or on Broadway. I do remember wanting to live in NY CITY. I never took any action on these fantasies. When I look at my life, I do feel very fortunate and happy. No regrets which is important to me. emoticon

All I ever wanted really was to be a wife and mom, and eventually a grandma. I wanted to share this for my lifetime with my first husband. Never dreamed I would be forced into a divorce. But I am rebuilding my life, and overall have achieved most of my dream. emoticon

When you were a youngster did you have a dream or goal of what you wanted to "be" when you grew up?
