Life Statements (I was tagged)

Thank you, Hadon, this was very thought provoking.

I want...my kids to grow up happy and healthy and for all of us to remain a happy and close family.

I have...a wonderful husband that loves me, and two fabulous parents that help me and share my life everyday!

I wish...that there will be better medicines for RA and Lupus with less side effects in my lifetime.

I hate...hatred and intolerance.

I miss...having more energy and less pain.

I fear...the lack of coffee.  (c'mon, they can't all be serious)

I hear...my son happily humming as he reads about Shoemaker-Levy Comets online.

I wonder...if I am doing everything I can and should do as a mom.

I love...my life, my family, my pets, my friends, I am very blessed!

I always...see the glass as half full!

I am not...able to function without coffee and those who live with me are very aware!

I am not always...able to do the things I want to do, thanks to RA.

I need...more hugs and kisses from my kids, I can never have enough!

I should...remember to not be as hard on myself as I am sometimes.

I tag...Susan, Luanne, Deb, Betty and anyone else who has not done this yet!  LOL

Be well,
Dawn

Don't we all, as moms, wonder if we are doing everything we can and should do? I think that's part of being a mom and you are a great mom - you are raising wonderful children.

I know what you mean about coffee; sometimes its the only thing that gets me going in the mornings.

I've done this before; but thanks for the tag anyway!!

What a wonderful list of things to live up to.  

And as my Mother always said,

"I only have one cup of coffee in a day.   It's just never empty."

I love it that you express your love for hubby and kids so well!
Do you know parenting is so hard adn so exhasting that aI have some of your same concerns even without lupus ..Of course wiht lupus it's way harder I jsut thought it was amusing that I would have the same feelings
love you, natalie
