Growing up I think we are all told how we should do things. Do good in school, be good to your parents, be nice to your friends.....the list could go on and on. Anyone with children knows that just as our parents hoped and prayed for these things so do we, and really we are lucky to get half of what we had hoped for. Looking back at life I know I can admit I have done many things wrong and my path has been more of a maze then anything. Yet I sit here today looking at my life and know I wouldn't change a thing. It may not have been the easiest path or the right path all the time but it has led me to an amazing place, and really changed my perspective as a parent. Take some time to sit back today and think about all the struggles you have faced and remember when your children do something you may not like or approve of they have to find their path.

The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
