Hello Starsnosigns . Every one can dream some can have there dreams come true in years to come if they are real LUCKY and some can not SORRY to say . Me I use to dream and wish a lot yes I did . In a way my dream did come true as I have a lovely partner and a horse that I always wanted and he is my first horse . The only thing now is I wish and dream I could stop moaning about my silly wee illness as there is a lot more people sicker than me and they NEVER moan . I am stopping now take care and keep dreaming as if you work real hard at them they can come true . Purplelady

That sounds like it could be a Canadian dream too... :)

I hate to burst your bubble!

Houses need cleaning, gardens tended, the dog needs walking and, although not mentioned, husbands can be demanding and as for children, they can be harder work than the husband!

I'm sure you could have those things in Canada too

One of my sons did have the American Dream though when he was growing up in the UK, he's now lived in Arizona, California, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah but he's had to work very hard to make it happen and get the sort of life he dreamt of.
As the old English saying goes
You don't get owt for nowt!!!

Nahh. Can't be true Foxhunter. My wife always told me I was twice as much trouble as the kid.

The “dream” is the result of a lot of hard work and sacrifice, and like Foxhunter said, it takes a lot of work to maintain! There’s nothing saying you can’t have that in your own country, but you have to play the game like everyone else. I will be 32 in less than 3 months and still chasing my own dream after some hefty setbacks, and I was born right in America's capital!

If you want a house, kids, dog, what-have-you, your best bet is to learn all you can now about how to manage your finances. Finances and learning to manage a home and bills are the cornerstones of actually getting to live those dreams. Read books, find free seminars to go to about managing your money, and look for a career that makes a good living. Learn to live within your means and not stretch yourself to the limit. Find out what your credit score is and how to keep it healthy! Finances keep a lot of people from achieving their dreams, or delays them until very late in their lives.

Sitting around and crying for what you want in life does nothing to help you get it. I have days where I feel like everything I want is very far away, but we build the future one day at a time!

mine came girl, girl, boy, girl, boy.

my grandmothers maiden name was Johnson. I wanted to name the youngest boy using Johnson
and it would have been Jeremiah Johnson ______________. that was shot down right off the bat.

Funny, my mother was a Johnson....

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
