Keep Moving Forward

This has been a tough year. Despite having the most adorable kids on the planet and the most amazing husband EVER, with all the financial, health, and emotional issues we've been dealing with there have been times that I didn't think we were gonna make it.

Amazingly enough, we did.

Although the biggest problems we've had this past year aren't resolved and I don't see a resolution to them in the near future, I'm grateful that we made it this far, and I keep praying for strength to keep going. Sometimes, I think I keep going just because I can't figure out how to quit :)
One of my favorite shows ever is Meet the Robinsons. I think the show is hilarious -- my favorite line, and Blair's, is the dinosaur saying he has a big head and little arms and the plan wasn't thought through very well. Needless to say, if I can get my kids to stop watching Tom and Jerry (I HATE that show!) I'm pushing for Meet the Robinsons.
The real reason, besides that hilarious dinosaur? The dad/boy's motto in life is Keep Moving Forward. And he created wonderful things. I love that. So here I am, thirty years old with three kids, I just lost my cat (who, by the way, I was finally starting to like - After FOUR years) and I'm deciding it's time to stop waiting for life to be okay and to start chasing all those dreams I had when I was a kid. By the way, I had very realistic dreams when I was a kid, so this really is a great idea.
