And absolutely no reason why you should have Elizabeth ... being married and a housewife and mother is a very real and wonderful experience ... this world is all the better for Wive's and Mums ... and Dad's ain't bad either! .... personally I think being a Mum is an absolute privilege and one of the best jobs in the world ... though I know for some people marriage and mother or father 'hood' can be very difficult.
I hope you enjoyed the path that life led you to and that it was even more rewarding than you thought it would be
