Keeping Hope

Today I was investigating...I love doing all kinds of research abou things that we are interested in doing some of them, will stay dreams but it's fun to think about doing them!

I never want to lose that part of me, the part of me that says yeah it might not happen but it COULD! I love having a childlike excitement for the future.

My husband bought me a book Mocha With Max a few years ago for Valentine's Day I love Max Lucado, he is a gifted writer and in this book he talked about tucking his little girls in for the night and one of them looking into his eyes and saying "I'm so excited for tomorrow!" If only I ad that, I sometimes have anxiety about the days to come, but I long to have that excitement for whatever adventure God has in store for me tomorrow! I am however very excited about long term goals so I will rejoice in that hope and work on my daily hope.

So for the upcoming year...

For Valentine's Day we are thinking about going on a Airboat Ride through Boggy Creek [everglades] It's something that can be done in Florida and not wherever we move so that is exciting and you usually see Alligators! how fun!

For the summer...I looked into getting us some cowboy boots and how much rodeo tickets are. The rodeo is pretty inexpensive, the boots are not...but it's exciting to maybe have a new hobby!

I looked into adopting animals at a zoo! How fun would that be...or naming a star.

Lately I've been wanting to go away to a cabin with Nathan in the mountains...it's been taking up a lot of my thoughts, so I looked into renting cabins over Christmas for this coming year, since it's our year to have by ourselves...we thought it might be fun to go somewhere snowy and isolated!

I also would LOVE to go to Seattle this year, I have a fascination with Washington all the rain and such...so I'm hoping to plan a trip for when the movie New Moon comes out...opening night...yeah that would be so much fun! Being on a trip 1st of all and seeing a new movie in the state it's based in. =]

Those are a handful of hopefuls for the upcoming year...it's fun to dream. =] Everything is based on God and His plan and provision so we shall see!

So anyway, played the keyboard a bit today. Showered and washed our couch cover. The rest of the night will be filled with some frozen pizza [not frozen anymore haha] and a movie or two waiting for my honey to get home from work.

Hope everyone is enjoying there weekends.

Such wonderful plans!! I find having something to look forward to makes the rest of the junk just kind of fall by the wayside.

And some days, that's all you need.
