More from my favorite book

We must confront, in the dreams we dream, as well as our intimate relationships, all that we never will have and never will be.

The Lazears go on to say, "As parents, we can dream; but we must also face reality. No matter how much we do for our children, they will never be everything we wish them to be."

Everyday, or at least it feels that way, I look at my children and wonder what are they going to be when they grow up. And everyday I come to the same conclusion. It doesn't matter what they do. Whether they are doctors, moms, scientists, programmers, nurses -- it doesn't matter. They have fullfilled my goals for them. They are my children. And I love them.
