I wish everyone knew this. Having a Master's, big house, ect...is not what matters. And it doesn't make you better than anyone else. What matters is to find happiness & love & special family moments that become memories. I found love, my husband and my children love me, & our family is what matters the most.
As you get older you start doing things in reverse. You start cutting people out from your life. Your Christmas list becomes practically nonexistent. You don’t need to be the first in line for everything. You take less pictures because some memories are best kept in your heart and not your hard drive. And instead of looking for love, you dig for it from within.
True! And I know I need the reminder, for patience is definitely not my strong point! Reminds me of the quote attributed to George Washington Carver ... "How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong, because someday in life you will have been all of these."
