This is going to sound strange, but I care about and consequently care for myself the most. I have 3 grand daughters in their early 20's, another 6, a grandson 8, and a great grand daughter 18 months. I have always felt about them like I feel about my three (now) adult children: It is up to me to set the best example I can for them in every aspect of life. I feel this even more now as I am a widow after 40 years of marriage. If I do not care for myself, respect myself, love myself, discipline myself, how can I expect them to do the same?
Please do not take me apart if I sound egotistical....that only means I did not say what I mean in a way others can understand.
