I've been thinking much about what I aspire to in life. What is it that I am trying to get to? What's my goal? It's not exactly as easy a question as it seems... There's one thing for certain: grow and grow my relationship with my family, friends, and Creator. If I can do that, plus love my neighbor as myself, there's nothing more I'd want.
There is one more goal I am, and have been, working on. Beginning this August, I've planned to read 200 books by the time I'm 18. In saying that, I must read about 4-5 books a month. It will help in the long run, and it's best I read much while I'm young[er]. I'm almost 15... in case you're wondering :-) February 20th, is my own special date.
Speaking of "growing up," it's so easy, isn't it, to find yourself saying "I deserve more now that I am growing up" or "I should be treated just like a grown up now" and "why can't there be a major distinction between child and young adult?" Part of me wants to grow up with a snap of my fingers. Another part urges me to just stay where I am and take each minute I have in my youth like a precious gift because it will eventually leave. To learn and aspire while the foundation is still visible. If you don't get a good foundation when you're young, it's hard to change when you're older.
Have a lovely week, dears, and do drop a visit over at my dear friend's little craft room. I'm assisting Miss Grace with her handmade Christmas.
