My Family

I can remember teaching a class that requires that students think about how they would like to be remembered. I was helping people write their goals and think about what they would want on their epithets. I remember when I went through that exercise once upon a time, I said I wanted a master's degree and a Ph.d. I accomplished those things, but as I got older, I realized all I wanted to be remembered as is a good mom. That became all that mattered. During those early years, it seems like all you want are the accolades. It feels like that's the only way to be remembered for your accomplishments. But my proudest moments have come from growing up four happy, independent children.
