I copied the idea for this post from my dear niece, K. I thought it was such a good idea that I copied.

For me, many of my hopes and dreams were shattered in the last couple of years. The life I was living was wonderful and in the middle of accomplishing most of my dreams. Yet, I am pleased to report that those shattered dreams have been replaced by new hopes and dreams and I am excited and happy for my future.

  • Have my children lead happy, accomplished, and fulfilled lives.
  • Become a temple worker.
  • Go back to school either for a master's or a second degree....probably in accounting, architecture, school library science, or school counseling.
  • Serve at least three missions.
  • Marry in the temple to the man of my dreams.
  • Be an amazing and loving step-mom.
  • Travel...particularly to Guatemala and to Europe.
  • Write a book about being an LDS divorced woman and the struggles and triumphs that entails, particularly how relying on the Lord changes everything.
  • Put in a swimming pool.
  • Remain debt-free, with the exception of my house. If I can't afford it, I don't need it.
  • Become a professional organizer.
  • Have more children (after marrying that man of my dreams, of course!)
  • Watch all my children (the three I have now, my step children, and my future children) be raised in righteousness, serve missions, attend the temple, and marry in the House of the Lord.
  • Run a non-profit budgeting center to help families learn how to budget and carry out the plans.
  • Build a house...from scratch. Only hiring out for a few things. I love power tools and I love building. I would love to participate in framing, drywalling, electrical, painting, and everything else.
  • Foster children.
  • Smile, laugh, and enjoy every day.
  • Die knowing that I have done the work I was sent here to do and hopefully can rejoice in hearing, "Well done, my good and faithful [daughter]!"
