You Are Never Too Small To Dream Big

I come from strong stock. I may be small in stature but I am never too small to dream big. When I dream, it is not only what I think about when I am awake, but also when I am asleep.  If I set my mind to something, you better believe that I will do it.  I am a very determined character.

Even when I was very young, I knew that I wanted to be a husband and father and I never gave up hope that I would meet the perfect girl.  When I laid eyes on that Mexican senorita, I knew she was the one for me. She did not disappoint and we were able to raise a family together. Unfortunately, we were not able to keep all three of the children and two of them had to be adopted out. We named our little girl Lola and she proved to be quite the challenge in many ways. We knew she was different and learned later that even at a young age she was deaf and partially blind. But I encouraged her and made her run and play with her friends, even though she was not very social-able.

My aspiration was to be a star of some type and I almost had my chance when Fido contacted my mom and wanted to use me in one of their commercials. However, when the day came for the photo shoot, I got stage fright and just could not follow through with it.

I know that my mom and dad had always wondered what I dreamed about when I slept because my legs have a tendency to move and twitch a lot while I am sleeping. I dream of running in the fields with big guys. I dream of eating all my favorite foods without being restricted. I dream of someone throwing a stick or a ball or a chew toy for me to chase. I never figured out why they like to do that so much, but I dream of bringing my parents pleasure by playing with them. I have a friend that dreams he is eating and you can see him chewing while he is asleep. It is quite hilarious and he looks ridiculous.

The greatest dream I have, whether I am asleep or awake, is that when my parents come home from a long day at work I will be able to curl up on one of their laps, close my eyes and have them rub my ears and cuddle me. I dream about it everyday and every day it happens, just like I dreamed.

I am a miniature Dachshund; my name is Louis Vuitton and I am never too small to follow my big dreams.

Here is a picture of my wife and our three little ones the day they were born.

Carol Graham has written 23 posts in this blog.

I am a wife, mother of two and grandmother of three. Family is of first importance, which includes many 4 legged members. Currently, I own and help operate two jewelry stores with my husband. My passion is being a health coach, which I have been doing for over 30 years. I survived cancer 40 years ago using alternative methods, which started me on the road to better health. Another great passion is public speaking. I am a motivational speaker that has much to share in the area of survival against all odds. I lived an intense life of outrageous traumatic events, always a fighter and a winner over cancer, rape, marital abuse, jail, loss of child, huge financial losses from fraud and greed of others. I strongly believe that laughter will get you through almost anything. I have just finished my memoir - Battered Hope - which was released this past summer. This fast paced memoir reads with all the elements of a good novel – character, conflict, suspense, and resolution. Follow my family through insurmountable hardships and witness the tenacity it takes for me to survive. It is a story of hope, perseverance, and faith.
