For the benefit of my non-blogging friends: Seven months after my first post was published I’m finally having a go at the WordPress prompts/challenges. Today I’m responding to four separate ones and slightly different to the norm I’ve rolled them into one post.
Here I have transcribed my past; the child, the teenage girl with her parents and the young bride with her life ahead of her.
My parents had low expectations where I was concerned; they held no academic ambitions on my behalf. I was expected to marry, stay at home and raise my children and in their minds I wasn’t Capable of anything else. If only they had known that Someday I would prove them wrong and in so many ways. Before that day arrived, however, the future, still unseen and waiting to be written, I would enjoy many years, maybe even the best years, doing exactly what was expected of me.
