As a mother I am always in a state of worry for some reason or another. A lot of times, as usual, I worry about their futures. I hope that I am not damaging them in some way, I hope that I am giving them the tools they need, and I hope that I am encouraging them enough.
Growing up my family had one goal: college. I don’t blame my parent’s for wanting that for me, but it wasn’t what I wanted. After many years of being miserable on a scholarship at a University I withdrew. I have never looked back, and that’s okay. Yes, education is important, I want my boys growing up knowing that college will be there. I want them to know that money doesn't equal happiness and that you can't take it with you when you die. I don't want them to chase money, I want them to have more.
