I hope one or both of you let me teach you how to sew… maybe become a tailor or design and make that line of clothes I always dreamed of doing myself. I hope one of you becomes a woodworker and that you both learn to love hard work with your hands. I also expect you to both have full sleeve tattoos, ride motorcycles and be adrenaline junkies. Love each other, life, your mamma and Jesus like it’s your last chance.
p.s. when I’m old don’t forget about me when you take those weekend fishing trips… I’ll still want to come.
*found this via my Tumblr from a year ago. still relevant.

Excuse me ma’am for the intrusion. I wanted to tell you that this post touched my occasional insensitive heart. Your hopes for your boys are indeed worthy aspirations. Tis an awesome responsibility to raise children in the nurture and admonition of our Lord. It’s a task that manages to keep us parents quite humble and dependent on God if we expect success. I recognize that those who comment here are predominantly women, but I hope you won’t mind a man commenting this once. Have a blessed week.
This is wonderful, thank you. Perspective from men is always welcome and a blessing indeed.
It’s not too late for you to be the designer. Remember that. I’m one month of turning 50 and looking forward to all sorts of new discoveries of my talents. 🙂
Now those are wonderful things to want for your children : )
Such sweet dreams…you have so much love and living to get to!!! 😀
thank you for sharing such personal lovely momma thoughts!!
be still my heart. 🙂
This. So good.
You’re blog is truly so inspiring. I’m so glad i’ve come across it (less than a month ago) and that now it is a regular destination. I’m a fan. It nice to ‘travel’ with your thoughts, your visual inspiration and snippets of your life.
I just found your blog and am overly obsessed. You live such an inspiring life, and portray it beautifully through your pictures and words. God bless you.
This warmed my inner mama’s heart. Though not yet one, I long for things like this too. Thank you for your words and your beautiful heart.
