So, last night I sat down and put pen to paper and wrote a list of all the things I wanted to get done for Monday. Did I get the done? Only some, but I celebrate because I completed some things instead of nothing. Celebrate the positive things, right? I was able to take some quiet time for myself, so I’d count that a win. I was able to feed my girls and myself, another win. I was able to do some dishes and laundry and care for my husband, children, and my home–that is another win.
Let me tell you a fact about me: I love to plan, goal set, and dream. We’re taking a fun four day family vacation in about a week and I have so much on my mind! I want to do so much with my family. I am so excited I could shout it from the roof tops. If you were looking at me you’d be thinking “Look at that girl, she is crazy (Excited!). Yup. Me… Smile stretched from ear to ear–pure excitement: hope, dreams, and all!
Why do I dream? Why not, is what I say! Dreaming allows me to flourish. Dreaming allows me to give life and hope to my family and my husband. Dreaming allows me to smile. Dreaming allows me to make memories and to cherish life.

#22 is really a dream…one of those deep memories that is created in the heart that when I look back in pictures or talk about “that one time we were in Brookings…” that makes my heart swell with gratefulness and joy. Mmm, I can already taste it.
So, what about you? Do you have dreams for today? Dreams for tomorrow? I hope to hear of them. Take care.
