I've got dreams. They're pretty big and require a lot of school. They will lead to making a big difference in a lot of people's lives. I hope.

I've also got dreams of being a mom. Those make me happy to think about. And they'll happen someday. And they will make all the difference in those little people's lives. I know.

I've got potential. I like to think I have a lot of potential. For a lot of different things. But how to spend the time? When to chase to which dreams?

I'm at a crossroads. School? Family? Work? All three? Only two? So many questions and only One who knows the answers. Only One knows me, knows my potential, knows my biggest and most sensitive dreams and doesn't scoff. I'll ask Him.

What are you doing in your life right now? Feeling the same as me? Got it all figured out? I would love to know, my friends.

YOU ARE AMAZING ! The Lord isn't the only one who knows that and recognizes it : ) He's not the only one who would never scoff at your dreams and your goals : ) Even though I have been a Mother for almost 7 years now, I still don't think I have it all " figured out " There are days I wonder what could have been had I gone down a different path. But at the end of the day, I KNOW I am where I was meant to be - and I know that because I am HAPPY here. And through pondering and Prayer and with help from the Lord, you will get to that place too. You are SMART, FUN, TALENTED, HIIIILARIOUS and a GOOD person. Whatever path you chose will be the perfect one for you ! But never stop dreaming and not stop working toward what you WANT in this life.

All I have figured out is the family part – and what joy they bring. Those they chose to marry was not part of any of my “figuring” but they cause the joy or overflow! I’m still working on the rest of the dreams.

It’s interesting that even though I have a lot of righteous dreams, I’ve only been able to achieve a small number of them – but they were the most important, and if I don’t remember that then I can feel a bit empty. But when I do think of them I get the overflowing feeling again!

You’re wonderful!

More and more these days people (girls especially) are not realizing their is so refreshing to hear you recognize how much potential you have, Em! When people do that, great things happen..
