I dreamed of a successful career. It wasn't the one that I ended up with. But becoming a nurse was what God had planned for me. It wasn't my dream. But I had a successful career. That WAS my dream!

I dreamed of a family. I had two sons. I wouldn't trade them for all the money in the world. Things didn't turn out quite the way I would have wanted them to. But I got my family. That WAS my dream!
I had dreams of traveling all over the world. And, along with Richard, those dreams came true. We traveled all over the United States. And we traveled to Australia, Singapore, Viet Nam, Thailand, Panama, Jamaica, Venezuela, Indonesia, Granada, Mexico and other places I've probably left out. That WAS our dream!
