Challenging (well) Myself

I just got finished reading a book by Steven Scott called "Simple Steps to Impossible Dreams" and I have just realized how I don't have a dream in my heart. I am talking about a specific, well thought out, clearly written dream. I can't say that I have really had any specific dreams other than being a mother and wife in my life. BUT I am proud to say THAT is going to change!

I am going to get myself in gear and get them out.
I am determined and inspired to get off my tooshie and get to work on prioritizing my dreams above...I am sad to say... CSI, Bones, Survivor, "the" Fringe (as Jackie likes to call it) or any of my favorite TV shows. (I am not giving them up cold turkey but I am going to get some stuff done in my life. :) Stuff that affects the kingdom of heaven!)

Now, I am not saying that I have not reached any goals I have had nor is it to say that I have not done anything to advance the kingdom of God but I know that there is so much more that I can do and accomplish. In my life, if you know me, you would see and say that I am one who strives hard to be and bring the best to the table whenever I do something for others...when I serve at church, when I am at a job, etc. So in not doing this in my life I feel I am not striving for the best for my family, for my God, or for myself. I want to be excellent in ALL areas of life...I am gonna bring it ya'll!

Babies are awesome! Sometimes I think I wish I was young and innocent again...not caring about what others think and just be me :) .

Just now my 3 1/2 month old let out a stream of toots like no other and just cooed and smiled like it was the best thing that has ever happened in her short, little life. (Actually it probably is the best thing that has ever happened in her short, little life.) I laughed like I haven't laughed in a long time.

That's all I want to say about that....I am not too good at the blogging thing yet but am sharpening my skills so I can be an affluent, interesting blogger.
