Big Dreams

When Don and I made the decision for me to step down as Creative Arts Director at The ROCK, we knew it was because our children were the most important thing in our lives. Reagan is the best gift I have ever been given – more than I could EVER dream to ask for. Rylee is coming in seven weeks and I can only imagine how much more love my little heart can muster. God’s gifts are always perfect and I can’t wait to finally see this little girl face to face and kiss her about a million times. This is why we made our decision – so I could stay home more and focus my attention on them.

Since deciding to make this change, I have realized that God’s intentions are far greater than we first thought. They usually are…

He’s been keeping me up at night – bombarding my heart and my mind with new ideas and big fat dreams. I was worried that my ability to create would be severely limited when I gave up my full time “payed” position and that I would be relegated to the nether-regions of mommy hood for the rest of my days. What I have discovered is that giving myself the room – clearing my mind of TOO much – has given me the permission to start thinking again and believing again in what I could truly accomplish if I decide to make it happen.

    I think you are absolutely right! Sometimes our brains just need space for dreams to grow!!! They might just have been crowded out otherwise.

    Sometimes we can be so overloaded with trying to accomplish so many tasks that we find that we cannot do any one of them to their fullest potential. So we have to make cut backs for the sake of accomplishing what is truly important, and not just getting it done, but doing it well. Been there, done that.

    I admire your ability to recognize what you have and make the tough descisions.
