I just remembered that next year is 2012 and that the world is supposed to end! LOL! So I got to thinking – what would I be bleak about not having done come 2012 and the world actually did end. The list was a bit of a surprise to me. By 2012 I decided that I wanted, desperately, to:
- 1. Have fallen in love
- 2. Owned a new puppy and lavished it with adoration.
- 3. Written and published a novel
- 4. Lived under a warm sea
The last one had me scratching my head but I cannot deny that I would love to live under a warm ocean, swimming in the waters and just letting the tides wash over me. I know I cannot turn into a mermaid *sigh* but I still long to live, somehow, beneath the sea.
The first I’ve given to God. I’ve looked man. I have sought high and low but my time for love has not come. So I’ve left it with God. He’ll let me know when the time is right. It would be awesome God if it could be before the world ends...just saying! *grumbles*
I’m working on number 3. In stops and starts but I’m working on it. Now I have an absolute deadline to have it done by *beams!*
And number 2...I’m a wanderer at the moment and a dog requires a steady home and a pack that sticks together. This one won’t be possible by next year – not if my plans work out as I hope they will. That breaks my heart but I’m hoping we all make it many years beyond 2012 so that I can once again cuddle my very own puppy. I’m planning on naming him/her Sherlock Holmes!
I want to acknowledge my blessings here too because God has truly blessed me and he keeps on giving me love and support and beautiful, beautiful people to cherish. My greatest blessing is my family - I cannot wait to be with them again. Thank you Lord for your continued nourishment, care and love for my loved ones and for me.
