Jack Johnson and I Are Better Together

Certain tunes bring out emotions for me, happiness, sadness, joy, floods of memories, you name it they remind me of the past present and what I hope for.

Jack Johnson seems to be a melodic mix of soothing meloncholy for the soul.

These past two weeks of clebrations have been bitter sweet... the kids and i had great times with family and friends and amongst ourselves. In my down time the sadness sets it and then I realize I have more homework than I wish to think about and I press on.

I only have a few more months until I have accomplished something I have wanted to do since I was young. I will be able to support my children, and live out my dreams, care and advocate for patients and show my children through example that an education is more than just letters on a certificate, it is freedom, intelligence and an ability to do unto others.

The beauty as I see it about education is that it comes in so many forms, you can educate yourself in gardening, baking and sewing, you can go to and University and sweat your way to a degree or you can master homeschooling your children. For me the importance of my continuing education is that I show my children that with knowledge comes the ability to be so much more. And no matter your circumstances it can be accomplished.

Here's a song that I love for obvious reasons...
Somebody's Chelsea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jHvJTlnUO4

Oh goodness, I hope that you don't think you need a man to be 'somebody's Chelsea'--you already are to all of us out here in bloggerland! (And nobody agrees on the education/freedom connection like I do!!)

Isn't it amazing where a song can take you. For example, I never ever hear a Spice Girls or No Doubt song without thinking of you.
