Living my dream

Go Graham Go wants to know what I am doing to live my dream. Well I can tell you exactly what i am doing I am living life to its fullest. I believe that things happen in life for a reason and many times these things happen even when we do not realize they are happening. As a young mother of stairstepped children my only thought was getting food on the table for them and love them whenever I was not at work. I worked lots of shifts as a nurses aide sometimes 16 hours a day take 8 off to sleep and head back. It was not easy but it did get my babies what I needed them to get and many things that they wanted. I worked hard and then when my daughter reached highschool went back to school and worked at the same time. I recieved an associates degree which allowed me the confidence that I could do anything that I wanted to do. I decided a year ago that it was my time to live my dream. Two of my children had graduated from highschool and all but one had reached highschool age. I had promised my grandmother at a very young age that i would not quit my job until my children were out of thier first 8 year of school. I always loved consignment shops and when my brother opened one and asked me to partner with him I jumped at the chance. My dream is continuing and can not wait til summer starts again where I will be able to travel with the flea markets. I love this and it is so much fun so that is what I am doing to live my dream.
