Two Reasons Why I Work So Hard

I came across some pictures on my FB page today. Here are pics of my two children. They are the two most important people in my life! They are the reason why I do what I do. I try to instill so much into them and know that what I tell them, only half of it they will listen to and retain. I hope that isn't true, but is most likely since they are still so young and innocent.

I try to see things from their eyes, feel from their little hearts and listen with their censored ears. I find myself staring at these little people in awe and just wonder what goes through their minds at any given moment. I can remember a time when I was as young as they are, thinking how great life is, what I wanted to be when I grow up, and having no cares whatsoever! Thoughts such as what color shirt I was going to wear, what color crayons I was going to use to "color an decorate" the walls LOL!! The days seemed so long and lazy.. nothing like today; fast paced and always in a hurry, no time for anything anymore except work, cook, and sleep (if that). They truly don't know that right now they have it made; the life!  I want them to enjoy every minute of it and I want to enjoy it with them because like I said in an earlier post, time stands still for no one.

Anyway, I guess I'm finished reminiscing and reliving my thoughts as a child, but I do plan to stay a child at heart and strive to see the beauty and innocence in the world, no matter how much I have been subjected to jaded thoughts and actions. It's hard for me to because as they say, ignorance is bliss, that rings true.
