D is for Dreams



I'd rather dream than not. I'd rather strive than be. 
How can I teach my children to reach for the stars 
if I don't even reach for the moon?

  3. Stopping by from the A-Z and a new follower. Like you, I've had the writing dream most of my life. But more important to me than being a big writing success story was doing the best job possible raising my kids. We inspire through our attitudes and actions every bit as much as we do through our words. Nice to meet you!

  4. Like Langston Hughes said:

    Dreams

    Hold fast to dreams
    For if dreams die
    Life is a broken-winged bird
    That cannot fly.
    Hold fast to dreams
    For when dreams go
    Life is a barren field
    Frozen with snow.

  5. Life lesson #1,294,379: Your kids may deny how much you inspire/influence them... but you do. And parents who aspire to their dreams, and work hard to make their dreams come true, tend to end up with kids who want to do the same. I've seen it in others, and I can only hope it holds true for my own. :)

  6. Love that. I hope my kids know to dream and that I never knock those dreams down.

  8. Says so much in so little. "Rather strive than be." Had to think a bit about that one. Guess I'd rather strive than be, or remain, in one place without growing.

    1. Yup, that is what I was eluding to. So many people seem content to stay stagnant, even if they don't like it there. Its sad. Thanks for visiting :)

  11. I love that you were able to be so inspiring in so few words. Sometimes saying less gets right to the heart of the matter!
