Bored of Dreams???????

My Dreams have all come true!
Family that loves each other!

House on a lake with fabulous view!
Adventures- First kayak ride, First Fish, First Horsey Ride:

But it all comes down to this,  This is from my Grandmother:
Let me live in a house by the side of the road, Where the race of men go by, The men who are good and the men who are bad, As good and as bad as I.  I would not sit in the scorner's seat, or hurl the cynics ban, Let me line in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man. 
My grandmother had 4 daughters and her husband died, she married soon after to a man with 4 daughters. She had 10 more children after that.  They lived through the depression, she worked at home in a 2 bedroom home, my grandfather was a barber and kept his boys busy with shinning shoes and selling papers.   They taught them to love the Lord, work hard, lean on each other and work through their problems.  They survived, had fun, hated and loved each other and left us with a legacy that is so wonderful that just blows me away.  Two of the children are still alive and I am so thankful to be born to this family and I am so glad that I have passed that on to my own children.  In the end, it is not about houses, views, gardens, or anything you own, but how you treated others, how you raised your family, how you loved others.  
And when you get bored of your Dreams, or bored with life, remember what it is all for,  Not yourself, but others, not your own desires, but what does God desire for you.  Thank you Lord.  Thank you.
