Dreaming

"We create our tomorrows by what we dream today."

My boy is dreaming of owning a snowmobile.  Kind of funny since he has never ridden one before, and this is the mildest winter we have experienced in a very long time.  He is determined though, and so we have been spending oodles of time collecting cans on the side of the road.  He has even solicited help from two of his Grandma's neighbors.  They are all hoping to see his dream come true.  It may take a while, but at this rate I think he might actually make it.  It's a good lesson in dreaming and the hard work that it takes to make them come true, and I'm proud to support him in that.  In fact, the whole family is proud to support him in that as well as a few people he doesn't even know.  He has found loads of support in his Grandma, and this has become their mission together.  I love witnessing that.  It just makes this dream of his even better.  That's the beauty of dreaming. It's contagious!

I love seeing children make choices and go for something. I can't wait till mine decide to undertake a project like that.

This is just so great! It's great to see kids dream big and really work towards something. Love it! You'll have to keep us posted on how he's doing with collecting money. :-)
