Reaching For The Stars in 2011

My family's motto last year was "The Courage To Dream." It's still our motto, because it is one that has worked well for us and it is something I believe in, but, just so we don't sound repetitive, I've re-worded it for this year. This year, we are reaching for the stars.

I believe that everything we hope for and wish for is possible, if we are willing to work towards it. I want my children to believe this too. I strive to show them, through my example, that believing in themselves and in their ability to do great things can help them to achieve their dreams.

I also want them to know that it is possible for each of them to have an effect on the world around them. They, individually, each have the power to create change in the world around them and to shape the world more to their liking.

My children all have beautiful, intelligent, creative and loving souls. They constantly amaze me with their kindness, their wit, their hearts, and their unique and powerful imaginations.

If anyone can change the world and make it a better place, these kids will be the ones to do it!

Happy New Year!
