Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5
That's a great question. I can't say any one person has been my
greatest role model - I admire different people for different things.
The grace in which my older sister handled her son's illness when he was
little comes to mind.
It had always been my plan to marry a wealthy man and hire
servants and stay at home to raise a family. Didn't happen. Married
for lust. Divorced after 9 years with a 4 year old son and a 3 year old
daughter. Found myself skilled as the bread winner having learned the
business world from my dad and skilled as a homemaker having learned
from my mother. Perfect combination. Treasure their influence and love
in my life to this day.
