Oh how she has grown

Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
Napoleon Hill

Kirstie has wanted to be a teacher since she was 5 and has had so many people tell her she has so many other options and that teaching little ones is such a hard job.... People are funny aren't they, do they really know what is in her heart!!!!....Her mummy has always encouraged her to do whatever makes her heart sing, whatever could make a little difference to her life and the lives of others. I know people think that I am an idealist and I sometimes don't live in the real world....but this is how my parents raised me and I turned out ok !!!!

  9. Cathy.. the fact that you are an idealist is what has always inspired me.. and the ability to live that dream [love the banner by the way] even more ... so I think Kirstie is just a chip of the old block.. thank goodness. we need more of that in the world..
