When I have my quiet time, the times where it's just me and God and all of my thoughts, I dream. I dream of what I want my life to look like in five years. I dream of where I see my kids in the future. I dream of the future generations coming forth from… Continue reading Dreaming Big
I think the old saying is true. The older you get, the faster it goes. Time is something not to be taken for granted. I've learned over the years and especially this last year that time is precious.
