I just watched a Kraft Food's commercial about being a perfect parent. Of course I cried. I was suppose to. I never thought that I wasn't a good parent. I think that we gave the kids love, comfort, material things, ethics,stability,a religion that they could decide about later, education, fun, memories. What I would like, is that there are some things that I would like to do over. The years that we had the kids home with us seem to have flown by. Did we have crises, did we handle them right. Probably yes and no. But I think they managed to muddle through growing up without too many visible scars. Did they take charge of their own  decision. Absolutely yes. I think that more than anything, they decided early to take their own paths and we just let them go. Proud of them.?Absolutely YES.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
