Be who you are

What do I want for my kids? That they will dare to be who they are.(I also want them to do the dishes without complaining)

I read this quote today and it said it better than I could have said it:

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: They try to have more things, or more money in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you really need to do, in order to have what you want.

    Those sure are the most beautiful girls I have ever seen. It looks like summer though, duh, huh? We have snow in San Francisco..Mount Tamalpais has snow right now. That is a big deal around here, I remember as a girl the snow on Mt Tam, then I went to Alaska and there was snow EVERYWHERE. Like Norway…..burrrrrrr I do miss a fireplace though……Love my grandgirlies………. I think they could never be any less than who they are. Look at the wonderful life they have lived.
