I can't believe we are already looking at the middle of May 2010. Remember when we all thought we would be flying around in spaceships by 2010 because it sounded so futuristic? Heavens, we couldn't even get past the thought of 1999...
Here we are...and June is baring down on us pretty hard. In just a couple of weeks my daughter makes the transition from Junior High to Senior High and she's dreaming of cars and turning the "magical age" of 16. My son will make it out of his first year of school far better than we could have imagined. PTL!!! Of course, he has to polish off the school year by breaking his arm on the playground! Little toot!
In just 4 short months, my hubby will turn 40...an age that isn't looking so bad to me now that I'm officially in my late 30s. (He and my young-buck friends remind me of this on a regular basis.)
The year's almost half over. What have I done so far? How much more do I want/need to do? I can't say that I'm disappointed in the strides I have made in every area of my life this year. I sometimes take two steps forward and then one back, but as Beth Moore points out...doesn't that mean that I'm still one step ahead? Yes it does. And I am optimistic about the strides I will make in the second half of the year...and I'm going to start that out with our first REAL family vacation in June...a much needed vacation...I can't wait. My hubby is even excited and that makes me smile a whole lot.
Reflection...it's good for the soul.
