As far as my mommying:  When the children were small I worked very hard and did not give them as much attention as I now wish that I would have.

    What would make you happier with:

    Your looks

    I would be happier with my self image if I could lose weight.  I am frustrated that I cannot, due to two reasons... my seizure meds I take, and the fact that I have a dead Thyroid (and no money to go to a doctor to have it treated)

    Your finances

    I would love to be able to get a job that works with my disabilities (damaged knees, feet and lower back).

    Your home

    I am looking to rent to own, or buy a home on some acreage.

    Your relationship

    I have a great relationship with my best friend in my husband... I can not see that we need to improve.  : )

    Your personality

    I am ok with my personality, I'm comfortable with who I am, and people can depend on me to be honest, truthful, and loyal.

    Your "mommying"

    I wish I had custody of my children.  They live in another state with their father, and it breaks my heart as they are not where they are happy.  I am hoping to get a job to save the money to move, and be closer to them.  Perhaps then they will then have a choice with who they can live with.

    The world

    The world would be a great place if peace ruled.  I don't see that happening until the return of Jesus.
