I miss that life can be simple, Do you? When did it become important that we try every sport, own every toy, be busy every second of the day...so my life is simple...I stay fit but that's enough, I have everything I need to get through any day, most importantly the love of my two kids, and when I don't have something I need to do, or go somewhere I need to go...I relax, it seems there just enough time for it these days...
I like to trim my bushes and trees, rake my leaves, plant my flowers, be the best mom I can every second, be honest and truthful, have faith in all things, change my mind, help my friends, believe I can be who and what I want to be, believe you can be who and what you want to be, accept all walks of life, keep my house tidy, learn something new! remember something I forgot! expect nothing in return...
So I'm simple and truly believe I'm good the way I am...I'm kind and thoughtful, I like to know all your favorite (and not so favorite) things, I'll try those things you like to do and decide if I like them too...I tend to be sarcastic and have been told I'm a "smart lady"...
I have a love of children and fully understand they are OUR future. I don't understand parents that feel money and social positioning are more worthy of their time, what could be more worthy of a parents attention than their children? Yet I see it everyday...I'm a teacher and I know, all too well, what effect a parents love has on a child. I tutor kindergarteners through fifth grade and see it everywhere.
So, for "those" parents out there with the big houses and cars they can't afford, working to save those things, maybe give them up...move, get a Kia, come home to your kids. Talk with them, hold them, show them your love of them...because they see you, make no mistake. They are watching...you. And I know you want too, I know you do. I know you can live without those things, I know you'd rather be with your children, but everyone is so afraid of what others may think. Well, all I can say, is that in time your children will be your mirror, what do you want to see...?
I know, a bit of a rant there, but I can't stress enough how important our children are to our future. Let them discover who they are, let them...it's ok to just guide and support and not control. Tell them everyday how amazing they are, that you love them for all of it, and see what happens.
Ok, so now we know I spend a lot of my time with kids! My own and 100 more or so at the school where I tutor. I'm not rich :) I'm a single mom and give it my all everyday. I have 50% custody so I do get time off, although I gave up dating 6 or more months ago...just was so floored by the intent of the men I spoke with and went out with.
There have to be guys out there that are tired of the game and are capable of dating one woman, there has to be...so here I am, again...I actually have met, and dated several men "in person" versus a dating website, but they turned out to be the same...so perhaps it's better that I can at least express, before any communication, that I'm looking for a man who can commit to one person, someday at least.
