I found the beginning of this post from four years ago as I was editing my drafts. If you ever wonder about my writing sometimes they are finished years after they are started.
Sitting at our breakfast table last week eating with my son and daughter-in-love the conversation went like this:
Frances: “They have kittens at the shelter and they have a sale going on.”
Anthony: “Umm humm”
Me: “Lucy would do better with a friend. You should get one.”
Frances: “They have an orange one.”
Anthony: “You’ve been wanting an orange one.”
Frances: “What do you think?”
Anthony: “Well, in a few years, we’re going to have a couple of kids, a dog and two cats. I’ll be at work, you’ll be home, so what do you think?”
Frances: “It sounds a little overwhelming.”
Anthony: “Ummm hummm”
Could I have any better joy than to have a daughter-in-love who is working out the plan of her life with her husband in such a special way? She has a career and goals and a thoughtful process of proceeding.
Cut to today.
Our oldest children have made a major move across the state and are expecting our first grandchild. I can hardly wait. Those dreams sitting at the table four years ago are coming true. God’s timing is always perfect.
Never settle for now. Pray, dream, plan, execute. Living your dream should be a goal!
Oh and the second kitten came. This means the dog and second baby are on the way!
