What Will You be Remembered For?


This is an essay that I wrote while going to classes for my GED in 2003 it was one of the first times that I actually kept something that I had written. I managed to get a 3.5 on it and the grade was based on the scales of the GED.

Even though I will probably never achieve fame, and fortune. There are some things that I will be remembered for like being a good mother, getting my GED, and just being myself.

Being a good mother is something that will be remembered because of all the things I do for my children as they grow up in their life, they will always appreciate you, and remember the times you kept them out of trouble, harm, and all the love that you gave them.

Another reason I will be remembered is because I achieved going to classes to get my GED. This is something that I have wanted to do for sometime now, and I will achieve it. My family will remember the trials and triumphs of my life.

The last thing that I would like to be remembered for is just being myself instead of someone that I am not. I would not want people to remember me in a way that was not true, and I would rather be remembered for being myself.

In conclusion, there are many reasons why someone would want to be remembered here are mine being a good mother, getting my GED, just being myself, and eventually getting a college education.

You know after reading this I have come to realize that I have just achieved everything that I want to be remembered for and now it is time to set some new things in place that I would like to be remembered for. I also have to say after going to college and having to write longer essays during those times. This one should not have gotten the grade that it did because it surely was not long enough. However, I am glad that the teacher gave me the grade that she did based on the scale of requirements from the GED. In the future I will work on this to make it better and fill in some of the missing pieces that should be included in such an essay.

The Quiet Versus The Loud

No matter where you are there are all types of noises that you cannot stand. When you are in a restaurant the noises around you dishes clanking, people talking about their life, server’s talking about what is going on in their life, music playing, and other noises that make you lose your train of thought. When you go to sleep at night and you lye in your bed looking at the ceiling trying to go to sleep but the noises around you keep you from going to sleep. It could be a rattle of the fence surrounding your home, birds chirping before they go to sleep for the night, the children running in and out of their bedrooms, the dog barking at the children for picking on him (Sham loves it of course) or anything else. It is the littlest noises that keep you from getting that good nights sleep. Sometimes it is hard to turn your brain off with everything that is going on in the world today. It is the quiet silence that drives a person insane. When the children went away for a couple of days the house was so silent and hard to bare. It is just not the same when you do not have noises around you like you always have. Sometimes you will turn on everything in your house just to make it sound like they are there. Well sometimes people cannot handle being in quiet surroundings. The only time the house is quiet right now is bright and early in the morning when we are having coffee, and listening to the birds chirp while the children are sleeping. I would not trade anything in the world for the noises that I hear on a daily basis. I believe that I would go insane when the children grow up and leave the house to start their own lives. It will be a sad day when that happens but hopefully, with everything that is going on in the world today they will stick close by instead of going far away from home.

The Beautiful Azaleas In Our Yard








You know as I was walking around my yard looking at all the beautiful azaleas that we have in our yard I just had to take some pictures to show here on this blog. They are in full bloom and so pretty to look at. We have many flowers in our yard, and soon will start getting our garden in shape. Mother Nature is sure wonderful this time of year with the beautiful array of flowers that fill our yards. Of course, for some it is a damper on their allergy problems. However, even though my allergies cause me problems I still love the beautiful essence of having flowers, fruits, vegetables, and other things growing in our yard.

More pictures to come later on throughout the year.
