While other’s write their Year in Review posts, I’m thinking I’m not so crazy about looking back.
Instead, I’m looking forward.
I’m looking forward to spending more time with the people I love, and being glad they are with me.
I’m looking forward to reading more, relaxing more, enjoying more.
I’m looking forward to summer vacations, swimming pools, trampolines, swing sets, and bike rides.
I’m looking forward to enjoying life with my children and my husband.
I want to live more, love more, learn more. I want to create beautiful things. I want to paint the walls, replace the carpet, plant a garden.
I want to be ok with who I am, and raise my kids to be ok with who they are, while pushing them to be the best “them” they can be.
I want to lay in the grass, in the sunshine, and smile.
I want to catch fireflies. I want to cook something new. I want to spend a day on the lake. I want to go fishing, and tubing, and lounge on a float.
I want to camp, and hike, and drink wine by a fire.
To teach, to encourage, to lift up.
To bow down, to kneel, to surrender.
