In today's society we are all encouraged to go to school, go to college, get a job, get a house and to get a spouse. But after that what do we do? What are we working to set ourselves up for? What is the meaning of all of this? I have come to the realization that everything that I do now is for my kids. What will I do after my kids are grown? I have no idea... But the thing that we all strive for in any age is to be wanted. We want to feel like we matter. It is a journey we all must take. You will find good people and bad, but it's all about how you handle yourself in different situations. With each situation comes a new experience. you learn to "listen". you learn to "see", you learn to "feel". With each passing day you become wiser. You go through each day sorting and deciding what is good for you and what isn't. You only live once. Try to limit your regrets. At the end of the day you want to look back and say "that was one hell of a ride!"

After dd is grown up and on her own, I hope to be a mentor towards other moms who are starting out or a mentor to children who do not have positive people in their life.  I am hoping i can be as active as my great aunt was in her 80s until she had a debilitating disease hit her.

Life is a journey,
After the kids are grown it's time to do whatever you want ;)

We plan on traveling all over the world, taking a few more classes in painting, lying in my hammock with a book and wine for hours on end, dancing around the house while cleaning totally nude and lots and lots of sex with my hubby all over the house. The possibilities are endless!

I think you have hit the nail on the head with your summations. Good for you for figuring it out. I hope a lot more people learn this lesson so that they can go on through life and enjoy everyday of it.
