December 21 – Future Self.
Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)
dear mother of four children, a kazi and a scruffy ruffy dog,
go kiss your husband and thank him for putting up with you. you've finally gotten your way [as if you ever had doubts] and are a SAHM. he works hard to provide for you, kullen, ******, ***** and *****. [yeah, you have 4 kids now, mama!]. you also have kazi and ******* [a puppy] who fight, seriously, like cats and dogs! you're household is crazy and although you feel like pulling your hair out - remember, you wanted this!
you thought a year flew by - try five! keep taking pictures because before you know it, ten years will pass and your babies will be half grown! keep blogging because Lord knows you forget what you had for dinner last night.
plant that garden now that you've had a new house built! you have a great backyard so stop being lazy [ha, lazy ... i know, you have FOUR kids!] and plant that dang garden!
spend time with your parents.
praise your sister for finally growing into the woman you knew she could be.
thank you friends for being there for you through the ups and downs.
again, go love on your husband - he deserves it.
5 years younger kaley.
