I am grateful that…

It’s Thanksgiving in the USA today – Happy Thanksgiving!

And I found this article on the BBC website which made me very thankful that…

I don’t live in Somalia – where people, especially women are stoned to death for having affairs or sex outside of marriage http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8366197.stm

  • It’s a pleasure to find someone who can think so clearly

  • I love it, Penelope! My kids were born when I was 24 and 25. They are close, I STAYED HOME with them! We did without a few thgins, drove older cars, had picnics out of our car, and gained weight. I was determined MY kids were not going to be raised by a day care center or a nanny. The result, you ask? I have two well adjusted young men Gen Y’s who are not all hung up on themselves. I worked HARD. I babysat whle they were toddling for extra money, when they went to grade school, I took part time jobs and QUIT those jobs when the job didn’t fit our lifestyle. I’ve had more jobs than I can remember and I think’ that is what makes me a good recruiter and a good judge of character. My career has been great for a few years, I refused to be part of the feminist movement. I wish I knew more and have a healthy thirst for knowledge but will never regret staying home with my boys. Yes, my peers (who are no longer my friends) called me names behind my back and thought of me as spoiled because I didn’t work for money, but it was worth it. When the majority of women realize they CAN make it without that extra income and start paying attention to their own kids, the world will be a better place.
