I dream a lot, but not when I sleep. I mean, I daydream a lot. I daydream about what it would be like to be on TV hosting my own show. I daydream about what it would be like to have tons of money and be able to purchase anything and everything I would ever want. I daydream about what it would be like to travel all over and not be afraid of flying. I daydream a lot.
Lately, I've been daydreaming about several things. One of them is owning my own business. I have this dream about owning my own cupcake bakery and making cupcakes for a living. Cupcakes for weddings, birthday parties, and just for enjoying everyday. I would love to do this. So far, Robin and I have been working on making this dream a reality. We are going to start small, from our homes and then hopefully it will grow into something big where we can open a shop. I dream about that shop too. I picture a cute little store front where people can come, sit down, have a cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk and enjoy a delicious, fresh from the oven cupcake. MMmmm....someday soon this will come true.
The other dream I have is of being a public speaker, a motivational public speaker. I would love LOVE to travel around and speak in front of groups. I daydream what it would be like to be asked to speak in front of a large crowd and share my testimony and give hope. I daydream of what it would be like to be able to touch the lives of perfect strangers in profound ways simply by sharing my journey with them. I daydream of being able to quit my 9-5 job to pursue this. Someday soon this will come true as well.
Finally, my last dream is of writing a book about our Parker. I would love to be able to publish our story of that first year following his death and then being able to touch people through that book. What I wouldn't give for that opportunity. It truly wasn't until I started blogging our journey that first year, that I realized that I could write and that I loved to write. Sometimes, I wish I could go back to NNU and major in Journalism or English or something along those lines. Or even just go back to college entirely and major in Creative Writing. Someday soon, I hope, this dream will come true.
These are my dreams. I hope and pray that at least one of them comes true. That maybe someday, I'll be announcing the grand opening of ZetaNorah's Cupcakery, or maybe giving the dates of my speaking engagements or maybe telling you all where my book will be sold. Who knows, all I know is I'm going to keep dreaming and keep pursuing those dreams however silly it may or may not be.
Happy Tuesday everyone!

- I am a child of God. I am a follower of Jesus. I am a wife, momma, daughter, sister and friend. I love good conversation and hearty laughter. A good cup of coffee is always appreciated. Most of all, I desire to bring others into an experience with Jesus. One that will shape their lives and rock their souls for Him. Geoff is my best friend and amazing husband. Parker is my handsome boy who lives in Heaven. Norah is my bright star and bringer of joy. Tori is my overcomer and peaceful warrior. I live to show Jesus' love to each person He places in my path. I pray this blog strengthens you, comforts you and encourages you and that it MOST OF ALL causes you to want to get to know Jesus in a deeper level.
