Wishes

May 2014 be the year we all...

laugh like 2 year olds

cry for someone else

reach out with willing hands

find one true treasure

make a new friend

find time for simple pleasures

step toward our dreams

love with all our hearts

inspire someone

take a risk that scares us

give hope where it's needed

create something magical

believe
 
Best wishes for you all!

  2. Now those are awesome.
    I'd add forgive and forget.
    May we do that and more this year.

  3. I've always thought it would be inspiring to teach. You have so many opportunities to do all these things. Maybe all of us do...we just have to look in the right places. I would second Alex. And may we who want to be published reach that most lofty of goals. Thanks

  21. Hey Jemi,

    That's a very thoughtful list. Let's rejoice in the wonder of our inner child. Would make 2014 such a momentous year.

    I would add, celebrate in the diversity of an all different, all equal world.

    In peace for 2014 and beyond.

    Gary :)

  30. That was beautiful, Jemi!!!!

    2014 brings a new stage in our lives. Our daughter finishes high school and moves away for college. It's happy, sad, scary and exciting. I have to remind myself that my husband and I enjoyed our lives first the first 10 years of marriage before her and we will continue to when she is off having her own life away from us. (gulp)

  31. Sharon - ACK!!! That's such a scary & exciting stage! My kids both stayed close for college (yay!!) but one has moved out and the other is saving up (boo!). I really like a full house of kids & chaos! All the best to you!
