Well I see you can't read the Journaling, so here it is:
What did I want to be?
While I was still young enough to believe it was possible, I wanted to be a boy! Because they got to do all the cool stuff!
When I learned that wasn't possible, I decided I wanted to be a mommy... of 10...boys! I know crazy!
My first real desire to be anything was to be a dancer! So I took Tap, Ballet and Gymnastic lessons, for about a year, until my back problems were found. Then I had to stop all the lessons! And I probably wouldn't be able to have children...
So I had to reassess my desires.
First, I wanted to be a scientist/Doctor, so I could learn how to, and then fix my back. I couldn't take the training, because of my back.
I wanted to be a policeman, but my back was an issue.
Maybe a private detective? My back was still an issue.
So I decided I would try to put my artistic ability to work, maybe I could paint, or be a writer...
So what have I become...A strong, independent woman with a bad back and the ability to see the good in people and most situations. So I'm not a doctor or a policewoman! I've been blessed with 2 wonderful sons and 2 sweet and very handsome (of course) grandsons. I have a man who loves me and treats me like I'm spun gold. And I'm a scrapbook artist. What more could a woman want?
