30 DAYS ABOUT ME
A DREAM FOR THE FUTURE BEYOND THE NEXT YEAR
As I think ahead to my life only 5 years from now, I see something that is very different and frightening. I will no longer have any children at home. I will no longer be a home school mom. That's a tough one! Being a mom has been my breath for the past 24 years.....it will be very hard to move beyond that. I know, I will always BE a mom, but as the children grow, move out, move on....my role changes drastically. This is a change that I am very slowly adjusting to. It is a painful one. Many women have done it and lived through it, I expect I will too!
So what are my "plans" when that day comes? Well, I am very much looking forward to grandchildren :) I expect that will be a most wonderful experience!
I have also been considering going back to school and getting my degree in Education. Not so that I can go out and get a job, but so that I can be an advocate for home schoolers. Here in VT where I live a degree would be necessary to do what I have in mind. That is also a very scary idea :) I'm not so sure I could be successful....but I think I should really give it a try. I've been considering this for a while now, but haven't looked into it.....I have 5 years, guess I'd better get started :)
