This month's challenge from Tracy Weinzapfel Studios Mixed Media Monday was to create something that included a life list, or a dream from that list. At first I thought that it was going to be difficult ... after all, having a life with my husband and kids is the answer to my girlhood prayers. I always wanted to be a wife and mother, and God has graciously given me those blessings.
However, once I got started, it was really easy to come up with a list of 15 things that I would love to have come true during my life. Some of them are doable in the near future and I am going to own it and work towards fulfilling those dreams.
Anyone with a little girl is going to recognize the quote I use as coming from the Disney movie "Cinderella". It is rare for me to hear a word or phrase and NOT think of a song, and many of those musical references are Disney. After all, they have a lot of music on many topics and I think I've watched just about everything they've produced. (Even before I had kids of my own, truth be told!)
I wrote the list in my own handwriting, and most of it is obscured by the stuff over top. Some of my dreams are:
1. celebrate my 60th anniversary
2. dance at my children's weddings
3. rock my grandchildren to sleep
4. go to Scotland with Chuck (my wonderful husband)
5. pay off our mortgage
6. take piano lessons
7. visit Australia
8. enjoy a clean house very day
9. make friends with an elephant
10. meet Elizabeth Elliot
11. go to CHA
12. learn to like gardening
13. attend Wimbledon
14. have a crafting budget
15. see the Grand Canyon
As I thought of these things, I realized that this could be just the tip of an iceberg of travel wishes and dreams for my kids.
