Always Have A Dream
Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

Yesterday was a nice day. The weather was perfect. Cody & I both had Doctor's appts' in the morning. The rest of the day we spent outside putzing around, and of course Cody spent the day playing w/ Lyndsey. Our neighbor Carol had her grandson over the weekend, so all 3 kids played together. And we thought he(Cody) would be bored this summer! It's great to sit back and watch them play. It brings back memories of being little. I don't think there's an adult who don't wish at some point they could be little again. No job, mortgage, car payments, or laundry. Now we have to much to do & worry about. We don't go by age in half years anymore, we don't just sit down with a coloring book and color, we worry to much about eating fattening foods, pretend that we are super hero's, and wonder if Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny are going to make a visit. It was awesome being a kid! The only thing we worried about was getting older so that we would be able to ride the big rides at the carnival, graduating so that we didn't (think) we had anymore school or homework, and what we wanted for Christmas and our birthday. Boy, wouldn't it be wonderful to be little again? If only we would have listened to our Moms and Dads when they told us not to want to grow up too fast, and that when we had kids of our own that they would grow up too fast also. I try to savor every moment with Cody I can. Sometimes I wish I could just make time stand still. When he was less than a month old, we wished he was old enough to sit up, then when he was sitting up, we wished he was old enough to walk so that we didn't have to carry him everywhere, then we wished he was old enough to talk so we didn't have to play the 'guessing game'. But now I miss all of that! I don't wish for yesterday anymore, I hope for today, because when tomorrow gets here today will be gone. Now I know what it really means to 'Live life like there's no tomorrow', and that's just what I try to do. So savor every moment. Live, Laugh, and Love! Take care & smile! ;0)
