Last night, I had a terrible night’s sleep. I was dreaming so vividly. Unfortunately, many of the people in my dream were loved ones who had died. When I woke, I said to myself, “We are all going to die.” I wasn’t saying it in a morose manner –actually just more in a matter of … More Nina
As the mother of two boys I’m really trying my best to help them become good people. I don’t care if they end up famous or talented or rich (although that would be nice).
