I am 40 years old and a mother of 3. I am also going to be a Grandparent in May of 2009. I have one daughter and two sons. My daughter is 18(Caitlyn) and my boys are 14 (Taylor) and 12 (Wyatt). I am going to be a Grandmom (Nonna)for the first time in May 2009. My daughter has recently gotten married to a wonderful young man. He is an Airborne Solider in the United States Army. Caitlyn and Sherrod are very happy and a mother could not ask much more for her daughter. They were married on Friday, July 11, 2008. He left for a 12 month deployment to the Middle East in December 2008.
I divorced in 2000, but re-married in 2004. I have a wonderful family and the best friends a girl could have. Without my family and my friends, my life would not be worth the trouble! I have had many difficult times throughout my life, the toughest times began in 2000. There have been several times that I felt like giving up, but my family and friends continually give me reasons to fight the battles. I have way too many regrets to mention, but I am learning to accept my mistakes and I am finally beginning to learn from them. I have burnt too many bridges but I have discovered that sometimes there are other ways to cross the "raging river". I have been disappointed and stabbed in the back by people that I have trusted, but I am learning to trust again. I have forgiven all of those that have "wronged" me, but I have not forgotten any of it! I do not carry the anger and hatred with me, like I used to. Despite all of my sorrow and pain, I still believe that I am blessed. I have 3 fantastic children, a husband that "worships" me, a Mom that is trying to understand me after all of these years, and some of the greatest friends in the world. Yeah, I have not always gotten everything that I wanted - but I have everything that I need. I also feel that significant changes are taking place in our world. I can feel the energy everywhere. I do believe that the world as we know it is going to change, well is already changing. Things must change if our planet is going to survive. I do not really think that the world is going to end on 12/21/2012, but I am almost positive that the world as we know it will end. This is a feeling that I have throughout my entire being. I have also had precognitive "visions" about some events. I have no idea what my visions mean and I do not claim to have any kind of "special" powers, BUT, like I have said, something BIG is going to happen to the world as a whole. I am beginning to "listen" during meditation and I have a "sense" that extreme actions will affect us all in the very near future. OK, that has been 2 cents concerning world events. I leave you with this hope: Love & Peace for you and the future! I have also had a difficult time with the concept of religions in general. I have finally found my spiritual path, and it feels wonderful to be able to follow my heart and spirit. For the first time in my life, I feel that I am on the correct spiritual path for me. It may not be the path for everyone and I believe that each person should follow their own path without persecution. I am not going to be the same person as I grow spiritually, I am going to be a "better me". I am happier from the inside out and that makes me a better mom, wife, daughter, and friend. The stresses of my life our going away as I follow my path. The natural herbs are making a huge difference in my life. There is a lot of studying and learning involved on the path, but I enjoy this part of my learning. I can't wait to discover new things each day. I encourage everyone to find your spiritual path and follow it, not matter what that might be.
My dreams ~ well this is a question that may have different answers from time to time. I am at a point in my life where my dreams are both on an individual level and a global level. It is my wish that my children will live in a world of peace, with abundance of love and happiness.
