When I was in 2nd grade, I wanted to be the next Marie Osmond. I loved “The Donny & Marie Show” (dating myself...) - I couldn’t sing, act, ice skate or dance, but for some reason I thought I could get up on that stage (next to Donny of course) and be ‘a little bit country.’
I outgrew that, thank goodness ... next moving into teacher, a fashion merchandiser, a choreographer, and then an MTV VJ.
In high school, I decided I wanted to go into business, leaning toward accounting. I loved math and numbers, so it seemed a logical career path. I entered college as an accounting major.

I guess we had been doing a lot of gardening that spring. When we got in the car to go home, he started crying. I asked him what was the matter. He cried, “I don’t want to be a farmer anymore!”
I smiled and told him he had many years to decide what he wanted to be when he grew up.
