For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

If the mountain was smooth, you wouldn't be able to climb it.

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” —Mark Victor Hansenauthor.

You know the funny thing about life is - and I wonder if any of you feel the same way - I can totally envision what I want my life to be like, I just don't know how to get there. It's not that I'm afraid to go there - there just seems to be a step missing - the stepping stone or bridge from where I am at now to where I want to go. Have any of you ever felt that way?

Is it all about taking that leap of faith?

Love, Chatty

You'll get there! You just have to get old (;>))

I've gotten to the age when my wishes are that everybody I love could get to the top of that mountain without all the trouble.

I'm looking at how to get to the place I see from the place I am.

Maybe the grass is always greener on the other side though.

The grass always looks greener over the fence - don't ya know. We all make our own decisions - dream it, or live it. Your choice! And, a tough one to make!
