  1. I loved this! I needed it this morning as I sat and thought about my dads.

  2. These are great quotes, and I thank you for the laugh it gave me as I read it this morning. This one is the pick: Having children is like living in a frat house: nobody sleeps, everything’s broken, and there’s a lot of throwing up.”
    Hilarious but true – at least in our house when there were two young boys…

    • I still wish I’d had children in my 20s or even 30s. But I guess some things just aren’t meant to be.

      • You made the best decision at the time and must not regret ewhat uou chose. The universe deemed it wasn’t yo.happen just then. If it was meant to happen, it would have happened somehow. I love my kids but they have given me many worries, and heartaches. You worry so much about them. You have freedom from worry I can never have and plus, they are expensive to raise. This world they grow up in isn’t always kind to them.
