Mothers Day 2012, what a nice day it was. Now that my children, all four of them, are all grown up and living on their own, mothers day seems very special to me. They all called and sent texts my way. All nice thoughts of growing up and thanking me for being such a good mom. They were happy days for me when the kids were young. All the challenges of raising kids, looks so different now that I have got to this stage in my life. I called my daughter in law and wished her Happy Mother Day and then my daughter who will be a mother in late November of this year. I am so fortunate to have four wonderful children, a lucky women I am. Lucky in so many ways; they are all healthy and they are all happy. I think every mom wishes that their kids are happy throughout their lives. They live in four different states but we keep in touch through emails, text messages and phone calls. I go see them whenever I get a chance and time allows. Time allows, there is a statement. I didn't think I had time to go to School years ago and then I found Granite State College. School pretty much filled my nights with reading, writing and studying. It was all very worth it as I did get my degree six years later. My children were all very proud of me, proud that I stuck to it. After raising four children on my own, school was a breeze. So if you are thinking about going back to school or going to college for the first time, you can do it. I did and raised four kids.
