Parents want nothing but something good for their children. Every parent wants their children to grow healthy, smart, and become a good successful individual. Everyone has a different style and set of priorities when it comes to raising children. From the moment a child is born, the parents even, somehow, have thought of his future and saved for it.
I, as a parent, have my own priorities with my little girl. She is our pride and joy. I want her to become successful someday. Finishing her college education is a going to be a huge achievement for her. So as early as now, my husband and I are saving for her education. In addition, I am wishing for good luck because I joined Upromise’s Share Your Dream contest. Upromise is celebrating their 10th Anniversary. And as part of celebrating the big milestone, they are giving away a total of $20,000 to the lucky winners of the contest.
The most valuable dream I have for my daughter is for her to finish college. I believe that knowledge is the only thing cannot be taken away. Wherever you go, education is your best weapon. That is why I am hoping to win the contest so the winnings will be added to my daughter’s education funds.
You can also join the Upromise Share Your Dream contest. Go to www.upromisetodream.com and write about your dream for your child. And as a member, you are able to vote on your favorite story by “liking” it. But you also have to encourage others to like yours too. See dream wall official rules for more details about the contest. Good luck!
This is my younger sister (in red sunglasses) and me. Our picture was taken four years ago when we were traveling to Cebu for a three-day getaway. My thoughtful husband provided travel expenses for the whole trip. It was a great experience sailing. And that was the first time my sister has been to Cebu. She really enjoyed our mini-vacation. It was also our bonding time since I left for Manila to pursue college and had to work at the same time.
I really missed spending time with my siblings. Our family’s difficulty getting by brought a gap between me and my siblings. I had to go to find a job after high school to help my parents provide for the family. My younger siblings were still in school. I was away from home for years. Time lost and never get to know my siblings growing up. I felt really bad when she got married soon after she graduated high school. I cried for weeks because I was disappointed. I had a dream for her. I wanted her to finish college like I did. I wish I was there to give her sisterly advice and stuff when she needed it.
But past is past. I was very happy that opportunities like these came. Now we have families of our own. Although we’re busy, I enjoy every single moment we talk and catch up on things over the phone or on the Internet.
When I arrived here in the USA I thought calling out-of-state is not considered as long distance. My husband said it is. Does it mean I was charged for long distance calls I made to my friends in California, Ohio, and Hawaii? I guess.
It is a good thing that my husband considered and approved switching to different phone service last year. Our monthly phone bills are cut in half. Now we have extra money to save for our next vacation coming in 2014. Straight Talk provided us with options to affordable phones that satisfied us Hook, line and sinker. The unlimited monthly service for only $45 includes calls, text, picture messaging, and web access. We only need simple features like these. But actually Android on Straight Talk is making me happy so far.
So when you Call a friend using your Straight Talk phone, you do not have to worry about extra charges. Straight Talk's long distance service is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates. If you are overpaying with your phone bills, switch and save now because Straight Talk has Everything you need in a phone service.
