I put my dreams on hold for many years after tragedy struck our family, I realized that no one is promised tomorrow. If I put off my dreams much longer that's all they'll ever be.
So I pound away at keyboard day after day, hoping to make them come true.
I am a mother of 7, grandmother of 14 Great Grandma of 1 plus my furry babies.
I love animals and will rescue one in a heartbeat if I see it's abused in any way.

Mistydawn: I found this poem doing research it's so beautiful, fits so well here I had to share it.

The Impossible Dream (The Quest)
To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow,
To run where the brave dare not go.

To right the unrightable wrong,
To love pure and chaste from afar,
To try when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star.

This is my quest, to follow that star:
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far.
To be willing to give when there's no more to give,
To be willing to die so that honor and justice may live.

And I know if I'll only be true
to this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
when I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this:
That one man scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star.

    CD Richards: It is indeed beautiful. Not sure if you know it's actually a song from the stage (and later film) musical, Man of La Mancha, which in turn is based on Cervantes' 17th century novel Don Quixote. I've not read the novel, but the musical film, starring Peter O'Toole, is a classic.

She and my grandbabies are my inspiration, the reason I try as hard as I do.
