Well I’m not buying it anymore. Home ownership does not equal success. Success, to me, is much more a matter of the heart. And though I realize a good amount of our frustration could simply be related to our location, I’m ready for an adventure. Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did,” and I believe that wholeheartedly.
That's I guess where you find a bit of peace, knowing there's a million different ways to raise and be a family, and yet no playbook. What works for some won't work for all. Each family, like each child, like all of us, is unique.
