This is one of my two goals too :D . Not a stay at home, but still a wife and a mom :) .
Yes and on my end, the mom part may be completely out of reach since I may not be able to have children at all, but I can always dream of one day

Keep in mind Mary's cousin, Elizabeth, who was thought to be barren. God ALWAYS has the final say!

Angela,
this is what I have always advised my kids (youngest is your age):
In order to find your dream job:
- Find something that you love to do (what is your passion)
- Find something that you are good at (if it is your passion you are likely to dedicate a lot of time to become proficient)
- Find something that someone is willing to pay you for (money is not everything, but if it is sufficient to sustain you and it makes you happy - consider yourself blessed).

Yes, I have a dream job (granted every now and again personalities come and go just enough to make it interesting and cause me pause), but at the end of the day I can say yes to all three of the above.

God Bless

Just curious.

Not necessarily a current one. Even one you, once, had :) .

I'll start saying I wanted to be a veterinary, but then I changed idea, since I'm too sensible with medical conditions and I suffer of trypanophobia.

So, since I was ten, I want to be a cartoonist or a storyboarder/ cartoon characters designer.
Hope this doesn't sound silly.
that doesnt sound silly to me...

to be honest ive been happy in almost every field ive worked in....

but i guess i have been putting a lot of thought into getting a workshop set up...


where i can start making appliances or furniture
maybe mix in some weapons or original ideas as art to give them away or sell them

id love to have that as a side job

and id also like to become part of a ministry and help in what way i can (looking into this already)

Retirement To? Avg life length is 7 yrs past nothing...
I could see if you worked until the age of 65-70, then after that do absolutely nothing, making it about 7 more years or less. I've known people who worked for 35-40 years then only living one year or less after retirement. Basically, worked themselves to death. The key is to retire at a younger age (if you can) then you can still work part time for a while, doing something that is not stressful, like being a greeter at Bass Pro Ships. ;)

For my last job I would like to be a greeter at Walmart and hand out the little yellow smiley's.
