There are those of us who feel that no matter what we do, we don't do enough. I feel bad that I can't take this child in NOW, and that we are stalled while I get my career going and can actually give her a stable home. It will come, though. I know it will. I keep feeling that something better is just around the bend. I just with that the bend was closer! :o)
Thanks for the kind words. I wish I could take them to heart. My depression is so crippling sometimes for my daily life. When I think about it, I feel guilty for being depressed because I know I could do more for myself and for my child and future child if I wasn't so sad all the time! Catch 22, you know!
I think that helping people to express themselves is a wonderful thing. Sometimes just knowing that someone is out there who cares what we have to say can make all the difference in the world! I am a big supporter of the written word. Having a career in linguistics and communication makes me wish that everyone could understand each other. Even those who speak the same language have a hard time understanding each other from time to time. My daughter started reading at age 4. She is in Kindergarten now and reads on a 2nd grade level. I am so proud! She also keeps a daily journal. She sometimes lets me read parts, other times, she wants it to be just for her and her stuffed animals. Hehe. I respect her privacy and encourage her to keep writing. Maybe she will be a writer someday. For now she has grand dreams of owning a pet store. Both live and stuffed. LOL
