what do you want to be when you grow up?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

When you were little, do you remember your first answer when someone asked you, 
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

When I was little, I used to answer in a song, "Que sera, sera -- what ever will be will be..."

This Thanksgiving weekend, I was blessed to have a full house once again.
After church and a brunch at a nearby diner (Joannie's),  we all walked to the park.

I was pleased and thankful because I know that no matter what --

my children will help each other...

will have adventures together...

and will always remain kids at heart.

The future seems scary at times but I think as long as you have the right perspective,  
every thing will fall into place.

As parents, we sometimes want something different for our children.
We want them to find a career that will provide them stability.
We hope that they pick a college major that is practical and logical.
And we think we should know better because we've been in that road before -- so we are talking from our own experiences.

But even if our teenagers/young adults don't decide do go to the path that we want them to take,
or even if our children decide not to go to the college we want them to attend, 
or major in a course we want them to master,
they are still young -- there are different options, different opportunities -- every step is a learning experience.

We can only continue to guide them, instill proper values and work ethic and hopefully help them be what they want to be when they grow up: HAPPY!

How about you, what do you want to be when you grow up?
