What if my life is just to raise my children to be God fearing decent people who perform corporal acts of mercy quietly, without fanfare or acclaim? And that they raise their own children in turn to be and do the same? What kind of dreams and aspirations did my ancestors have? Did they ever wonder about the future generations they were laying the foundation for? What kind of future will my descendants have? Who will they marry? What kind of children will they have? What example will they be for the people they know and the world in general?
Is it really worth it all?
I would like to think so.
