Dreams

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let go.”

Carol Burnet (1933 – )

When I was a little girl, I had dreams of flying. I would imagine being able to soar above the earth and see all the world. I could witness people from every country simply by blinking my eyes and appearing in that country, flying just high enough I could see what they were doing, but they never noticed me.

I loved the feeling of feeling that free. I would look forward to going asleep every night in hopes having the dream.

As I grew older I still had the dreams, but the theme became me always rescuing everyone in the dream.

Years later I heard a dream interpreter on a radio interview. I decided to call in and ask about the dream. She told me it was from my childhood and how I felt responsible for my family.

When most children have dreams they are about what they will become when they grew grow or about playing in a candy store.

The results of my dreams as a child has come full circle and it has worked to inspire me.

As an adult, my dream is to create a safe environment for the children who have been left to their own devices. There are millions of children living on the streets because their homes are too challenging, or they don’t even have a home to go to.

My dream is to give those children the proper education and a safe nurturing environment so they can follow their dreams.

The Time We Spend

“My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you?”

Erma Bombeck (1927 –  1996)

My wish, so close to Mother’s Day is that every woman on earth be in a position to hire a house keeper! At the very least she should be able to hire someone who could keep up with their house work for them.

House work is so repetitive! It is such a waste of time! Once complete, it has to be started all over again, from the very beginning.

I understand why some of my friends turn a blind eye to their dust, piled up laundry, un-vacuumed rugs and unkempt rooms. There’s too much to do, too little time and too many more important things to accomplish with one’s life than the sheer tedious tasks of keeping their house in order.

I agree with Erma and protest the mundane and celebrate every woman’s privilege to bring in outside help so they have more than enough time to work on all of those special projects that make their days worthwhile!

Here’s to having more fun and less work!
