                         Do what YOU LOVE to Do!

 

        A Glamour Job or Activity is NOT WORTH IT !

                    (for any income or wager) WHEN:

 

  •        You do not enjoy doing it;
  •        Not Safe for yourself and others;
  •        It is not Legal or Morale;
  •        Not able to spent Quality Time with Family and Friends!

Our family history includes maternal ancestors that came into the US from Canada and paternal ancestors that lived in the south and demonstrated inclusion of the American Indians and in other generations the Aftican Americans that were segregated at the time.  I want to be able to pass on our family history as told through letters and stories that have been saved over many generations and that tell of the risks taken to come to the US as well as the risks taken to stand up for what you (or they) believed in.  I am newly retired and have been gathering things up in preparation to do a project such as this one!

I am blessed with two wonderful grandchildren, a girl 7 and her big brother 15 (how did that happen!) My grandson loves family stories especialy about the 'old' days. 

 

I hope they learn from these stories. One, that you don't need so many things! I know life is totally different, but some things don't change. To be kind and compassionate to everyone they come in contact with. To share what they have with love. To learn how to handle their feelings, anger, hurt, dissappointment and happiness and joy! Life is hard, there is no getting around that. I hope they are prepared for whatever life has in store for them.

As a "P.S." - the education/knowledge gained can (and need be) updated throughout one's life anyway, in any field.  Am currently interested in a totally different "career" from the one I have had, and although the obstacles are many, my determination is stronger still!  Feel that I can be an influence in my own grandchildren's lives, but even more, love the fact that there is more freedom to pursue interests now.  Same for you, would guess?!?

You have the right idea-best to get one's education young IF possible - but if not, later in life.  You can retain knowledge (if you work at it) at any phase of life!  You are a wonderful example for your family-KUDOS!

I have 4 wonderful granddaughters (so far!), ages 10, 7, 5 and 3. I want to tell them about what life was like when I was their ages, about my parents and grandparents and all our traditions.

COMMUNICATION:  Treat every day as a gift from a higher being.  Everything you receive is temparary for you to enjoy and share,  Listen and learn (do's and don't)  from everyone you meet..  Remember, SENIORS and YOUTHS are your life line.  Listen and learn from them because you will need them douring your life line.

we have a tradition of baking sugar cookies at Christmas, I did this with both my children and my oldest grandchild, I hope to carry it on with my youngest grandchild. I would like them to know what things were like when I was growing up and to share the memories we made that they may have been to young to remember
