  • Aug 7 2013: I guess my biggest fear is dying before I have done all I can do to help my family survive and the next generation thrive.

    I try to be healthy and look for opportunities to help my family survive and pass on whatever I have to give to the next generation.

      • Aug 8 2013: Thanks Kimberly.

        I really do not worry much about anything, so while it may be my biggest fear, they are all stored neatly in a box somewhere in my attic.

        It is actually even less of a fear now that the kids are mostly grown and moving towards self-sufficiency.

        I use to be concerned I would not be there to teach, protect, nurture, and show them how to enjoy life. They are both pretty well balanced and happy, so now i am more like a Bonsai tree pruner.
