Wife and mom to 3 wonderful children. I am very passionate about life and living. Many consider me to have somewhat of a creative energy, I consider myself, slightly obsessed with the details. What brings me joy is to listen to my kids interact and share their views about the simple things in life that many take for granted. They are so permeable at the perfect elementary school age. I wish that all the children of the world would have such innocence and the opportunity to experience as many environments as they are able to. That is why in my next life, I hope to be reincarnated as a nomad, because I often feel that the world is our oyster, and we should not waste time but start exploring it. I would reach out and touch as many young lives as I can. The more we expand our borders, the more likely we are to be accepting of others no matter what their cultural, racial, or religious persuasions are. Live life to the fullest, while taking care of mother earth. As this old native American proverb says it best "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
