So after spending some time cuddling with my husband, the raw emotion and the desire to bust out crying fled. Though I hope I don't have that dream ever again, I am thankful for the perspective it has given me.
So to continue the topic of dreaming.... have you recently seen the commercials for Honda where they talk about finishing their "Leap List" before they get married or have children? The commercials have really struck me, considering all the bullet points Matt and I have on our own "Leap List".
Here is my take on our "Leap List". Matt's probably varies or at least has more to add, but for me... these are a few things I would love to do with Matt before a baby:
- Go on a mission trip together
- Buy a home
- Have another Honeymoon
- Work out together regularly
- Travel out west
- Take Matt to Acadia, Maine (where I spent a summer working)
- Visit as many National Parks as we can
- Find a church family
- Get master degrees
So will our leap list ever get finished? Probably not. But do look forward to crossing off as many as possible? Absolutely.
I enjoy the opportunity to dream. (Preferably not like my dream mentioned up above) :)
