When I Grow Up

When you were little what did you want to be? Seriously. No holds bar here, what was it? A policeman, astronaut? Did you turn out to be that?

I wanted to be a teacher and a writer. As long as I can remember.

I am currently neither. At least by occupation. I was thinking of this the other day and really gave pause to it. No I do not teach or write as a job. However I quickly realized that I do teach. My children (and occasionally my husband) everyday. Everything I do and say is guiding them in the way they should go. So in that sense, I found new joy in caring for them! Instead of being all emo about not doing something in the exact way that I had thought, I get to do even better and concentrate on a shaping my little girls.

And as you are reading, I do write. Lol. Ok, I know, its lame and to date I have not posted anything noteworthy but who cares. I'm entertained and have a great place to vent. Maybe one day I'll find my artery of thoughts and who knows, could turn it into something more.

For now I do what I do. Making the best of it. Like my pappy always said "wherever you go, there you are". Be here in the moment. Suzi Q Make Do. And enjoy.

And baby, thank you so much for all you do. You encourage me to do what will make me happy. I love being married to you and look forward to all that we will accomplish and become together.

All of my heart,

Great post. Growing up I always wanted to be a fighter pilot. Must have been something to do with Top Gun. So even though I'm not that, you can still be my wing man anytime.
