Sometimes I think if you say, “Well I’d change this,” and if you did that it might change the course of where you thought you were heading. Then you’d say, “Wait a minute, I had it pretty good back there, I knew what to do, it was safe.” At least it was within my realm. So I don’t know that you should just snap your fingers and change things cuz it might be a place you’re not ready to go. You know how you got to this point so you just snap your fingers and all of the sudden I’m “no longer in Kansas,” you know. You’re like, “Whoa,” you know. Some people have the confidence to get up and go on a plane to go to Europe and live by themselves for the first time. Other people are like, “Hmmm, don’t think I can do that.” It’s not that I can’t. I just don’t have the “bandwidth.” So I don’t think I would change anything, I think everything happens for a reason. Like my kids, I’m proud of them. They’re good people. They may not always do things exactly the way I want them to but they’re…well it’s their book you know, it’s their book. Everyone has to write their own page in their book. You know you can sit there with your little white out and go, “You should have done it like this and, I don’t know about that page there girl. I don’t know where you’re going with this.” But then they land on their feet hopefully and make themselves proud and that’s all you gotta hope for. Hope that they’re very happy in what they’re doing and you know, growing and hope they’re going forward. Society changes and the rules change, and if they can just keep going forward and be happy with what they wrote on their page, it’s good.
