Day 20: Where do I want to be in 10 years

10 years is a very long time in some ways, but in other ways it is short.  If I think about 10 years from now, Chris will be 26, Hannah will be 23, and Jennifer will be 20. The possibilities I could be a grandma in 10 years is astounding. My dreams are that I will have published some kind of book and that we will be debt free. I want to be 25 pounds lighter and I want to be healthier. I will be 59 years old, but I want to be living like I am young.  My kids will either be finished with college or in the beginnings of college. Mike and I will most likely be empty nesters.  Wow, that's mind boggling.  I can't imagine a home without children living in it.

I want to be deeper in Christ, my faith be stronger and bolder. I want to make a difference regardless of what I am doing at the time. Maybe, I will be working. Last night I dreamed about working in a field that helps abused and neglected children. That is what I feel drawn to as I prepare for the next season in my life.  I want to counsel them and help them work through their pain.

Other than that, God alone knows what the next 10 years will bring. I am going to to my best to take it one day at at time enjoying all the moments in between.
