dream chaser

I've been dreaming about changes in our lives for a long time.
New and different and exciting mixed with scary and unknown.
It all seems to be coming together.
I'm finding myself more and more.
Realizing things I have daydreamed about could become reality.

Now it's time to get to work and work the plan.
If you know anything about me you know I'm not afraid of work, 
but I am afraid of not being secure.
This year is going to be all about trust in our dreams, my dreams. 
Knowing that everything we have set out to do we have accomplished.

Every time I turn around I keep seeing the words "dream chaser".
I love the little nods that I am heading in the right direction!

Not So Little Monkeys

 Once upon a time I had three little stair step boys.  
My hands were busy, my house was noisy, 
and my heart burst for my little men. 
Time has flown as my little guys have grown into amazing men.  
My heart still bursts, but the noise and busy-ness is passing.  
I miss them being little and being able to pick them up,
but this stage, three teenagers, has been pretty fabulous.
Setting rules, expectations, guidelines when they were little 
has paid off more than I could have imagined.
 Kenny and I get to enjoy these guys rather than worry.
We get to joke and plan and just be.
What a gift this mama gig has been!
Hang in there mamas of littles! 
It gets better and different and more amazing.
Now they just have to lean over so I can still kiss the top of their heads.
