Would probably not have included all that reality gave me.
My 2nd granddaughter...YES.
A grandchild, and husband, from child #2...YES...Knowing how much she wanted to be a mommy, though I wasn't sure about the husband part.
Steph going to college...YES.
Taking care of my mom here at our home....YES.
Now if anyone had read my actual future, I would have told them they were HIGH!
4 and 2/3rds granddaughters?? No. Way. But love them all I do! But seriously, no grandSONS?
Steph in her 4th year of college? yah, I could see this, admittedly.
Mom's dementia becoming more challenging? No, I was blissfully ignorant, or I would have been very frightened of the future with her. Her death? No. We know that's a given.
My son moving back home. No. But if I had known the financial future,
hopefully I would have made some changes!
My son gaining full custody of his 2 girls and moving them in with us? No. Way.
The oldest granddaughter's diagnosis with Aspergers Syndrome? No. Way. At. All.
Getting back to the sewing machine to make skirts for 4 of the grand-girls? Never. Depression had to strong a hold on me to see this. At. All.
What have I forgotten?
