5 years ago …
I was 19 years old. I had just graduated high school and knew I would be off to college in the fall.
I did things with my life like cover the whole driveway with chalk. I did not do things like washing cloth diapers, paying a mortgage and paying for my own gas for my car.
I knew I would marry David in the next couple of years.
I was going to be a secretary like my Mom when I got my degree.
I had just started working for an eye doctor in town and I was enjoying the relaxing summer.
5 years ago …
I saw myself being not exactly where I am today. I did see us living in a house in Hutch, but I also thought maybe we would rent for a while instead of buying. I had no idea we would have 2 spoiled kitty cats and I didn’t see any kids in our lives just yet.
5 years from now …
I see myself still living in this house, Adelynn will be 6 and probably starting the 1st grade.
We will have been married 8 years by then.
I see Dave, Adelynn, Bruce, Bella and myself in our house and maybe another kid or two also. I see us having started the Bible Study we really would like to start and us still being happy and feeling settled in our lives. I see myself done with HCC by that point and on to KSU (Online).
I see many projects being completed that we don’t have time/money for right now.
I like all those ideas, so I would like to see that pan out. But what did I know last time I made that 5 year prediction? If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.
