Something of a Challenge

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.
