Food 4 Thought Friday

september 26 2008

Who was your role model growing up?

My grandmother.
She was strong, stood up for her 7 kids, has lots of wisdom to share.
Her knowledge of motives and minds of people was amazing. Like she was able to read their thoughts.
She was one of the first women in het time to acknowledge that motherhood was extremely important, but that women needed to get some time for themselves.

She shared everything she had and she had the ability to be happy with nothing.

Need I go on?

Who would you turn to first if you were in desperate need of help?


Only once the past year desperation got me so low I asked to have a talk with a friend, the doctor's wife.
For the rest I try to figure everything out by myself.

Are you generally organized or messy?

I'm not messy, my family is.
When the kids were little people admired me for keeping my house so clean and all the closets so ordered.
I even had the cotton nappies all folded and in straight rows ready for use.

Now I have to give up tidying and cleaning everything all by myself.
Taking care of 4 kids with special needs and helping the girls with school just is too much.

Midnight Snack
What do you do when you can't sleep at night?

I try to fall asleep listening at the radio.
Otherwise I'll read.

Last week I haven't slept a complete night because I wanted to write a letter.
When I found the right tone and words I went downstairs and typed it at the computer.
