  • I actually did. I went on wonderful vacations with my friends. We went to Hawaii and Mexico. Funny even then, I was looking at the couples and wishing I was a couple with someone..After I got married and we had kids we bought a home, mini van, all of it. My marriage ended sadly in divorce due to his being very abusive over a 12 yr period. He ended up in jail for it. So, I had to start dreaming new dreams all over again. It hasnt been easy, but my kids have kept me going all this time.

  • No, I did not but I will even with my kids. I am not sorry I didn't I think it just happened the way it did for a reason.

  • Not at all. I was actually in the middle of living out one of my dreams when I found out I was pregnant with #1. It had to come to a halt because of my pregnancy. There are times I feel a little sad about it, but most of the time I realize how blessed I am and how much fun I have every day thanks to my kids.

  • No. Thank God He gave me my children and changed my plans. Looking back, my visions for my future were selfish, pointless, and had no real meaning or purpose. I would never ever wish I could go back and live out my own plans. God certainly knew what I needed better than I did.

  • My only plan was to get married and have kids. So, yes, I accomplished every thing. I went to college because my parents wanted me to go. I had a plan in case I didn't meet someone and get married but plan A was just to have a family and be a mom.
