My Pipe Dream...

One thing I know for sure...Life does NOT turn out the way you expect it to. Sometimes I feel like a two year old, and when life doesn't give me what I want I throw my little tantrum. The great thing about being a grown-up is that after time has past we can look back and see that the path we're on is even better than what we wanted to begin with.

Many of the dreams I had growing up have fallen by the wayside. I had this naive vision of being a young mom straight out of 1950s. Cooking, sewing, crafts, scrapbooking, attending the local bake sales and school fundraisers. But no matter how hard I try, I'm like the two year old trying to force the square block into the round hole, and when it doesn't fit, I throw my little tantrum.

Here is my visual aid :)

Lately, I've started seeing the error of my ways. My life is not what I expected, but that doesn't mean I'm not happy. I'm starting to accept that I am a square block, not round, and I need to find the square hole. I've stared dreaming about my square life.

I want to share just one dream I still hold onto and hope is still part of my square life. I found the floorplan for this house when I was taking interior design in college. I love this house!! Everything about it is just wonderful. I have literally thought and dreamed about this house for going on 10 years now!! I know that in reality I will probably never live in this exact house, but I'm hoping for something similar. So this post is dedicated to dreams. Life may not give us what we expect, but we can still be happy and keep on dreaming.

It's the Little Things

This afternoon I went into my room to find this beautiful colored picture from our 2yr old foster son on my pillow. He had colored it in his nursery class at church. It so made my day. It really is the little things that make life wonderful.
