Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed for freedom, and as we remember him on this day, I can’t help but think about my own dreams. So many of them have already come true. Let’s do a check list:
–I am in love with a wonderful man and even got to marry him. October 2013 will be our 10th wedding anniversary, and it still seems like it’s still only the beginning of our lives.
–I have two beautiful and healthy children who never stop surprising me and making me smile.
–I love my job and am paid money to sing and play guitar and spread music to children everyday.
–I have irreplaceable family and friends that can lift me up when I am down and encourage me often to fly.
What more could a gal wish for? I am truly a blessed soul.
A friend said the other day, “The sky becomes the limit if you are willing to dream.” Martin Luther King Jr. certainly dreamed to the sky, and though it has been a painstakingly slow process, America is light-years closer to his dream that “all men should be created equal.” That is a huge dream, and progress (though certainly not perfect completion) has been made.
So, if the sky’s the limit, what else could I possibly dream for? Yes, there are so many more things I would like to do with my blog. I’d like a cleaner and more organized house, too. This all seems like small potatoes though when I think of dreams globally. There is more…always more, and yes my friend, I am willing to dream.
My song of the day is “Dreams” by The Cranberries. I love the lyric:
I want more
impossible to ignore,
Impossible to ignore.
And they’ll come true, impossible not to do,
Impossible not to do.
So yes, the sky’s the limit, blog readers. Click HERE to hear The Cranberries sing “Dreams,” and please don’t forget on this Martin Luther King Day to dream BIG! You deserve it!
