33 months (ish)

Ok, so the idea for this blog came from www.dayzeroproject.com.  It’s an okay website, but I decided to move my list over to my blog.  I think I will keep better track of it here.  The concept is to complete 101 things in 1001 days.  That is 33 months (ish) – not quite 3 years.  Now that I think about it, that seems like such a long time.  By the time this is finished I will be 38 years old, Kayla will be 8 years old, and Bekah will be almost 5 years old.  Oh – my – goodness!!   Now that I have looked over my list I don’t think I have stretched myself enough.  I will go back through at another time, remembering the time framework, and re-work things.  Will you join me?  What do you want to accomplish in three years?

I always had some idea of a goal of where I want to end up in life – – physically, emotionally, spiritually, monetarily, so on…  Since being a bit of an “insider” in Awana, I have dabbled in the book Modern Day Joseph. This book encourages you to have a goal (check), but not to stop there.  We must also plan the steps that are going to get you there.  So many times parents say, “I don’t understand what happened.  We thougth she was a good girl!”  To look short term and evaluate what path you are taking on your journey.  To do this especially when guiding your children to a certain end.  I want so many things for my girls!  What are the daily steps that I need to take to get them to the point that they need to be in order to turn out
