    Don't Want It All ... Just Want to Be Me!

    Be me. A woman. For good or bad. for everyday ups and downs, smiles and frowns, hopes and desires, happy and sad. Live everyday as a gift as who I truly am in my heart of hearts. I don't want it all. I just want to be.

    Apparently I am unambitious. But I don't want a lot. I want a pretty house thats warm and comfy, a nice job where I can help people, maybe get published, go to see the world and then live the rest of my life happy with my man. Maybe a dog. Maybe a carport so my car doesn't always...
