Yesterday, I listened to the 50th anniversary speech commemoration on television of the 1963 March on Washington, and Dr. Martin Luther King’s iconic “I Have A Dream” speech. Listening made me think deeply about dreams. I went outside and noticed a tiny, yellow flower bursting forth with full radiant glory. It was growing in between the rocks and extreme dry heat we have been experiencing in Minnesota. That little vibrant blossom revealed new life. A new dream to grow voluntarily in an adverse situation. In a very big way it gave me inner strength to realize that many of my dreams are still attainable and not to give up the hope!
Little things are so important to realize in our daily life. It’s the possibility of a dream that makes life interesting!
During a Skype session with Gavin yesterday, he received an email from his publisher in America. (Yes, at the exact moment we were online with each other!) It was another sign of hope and faith. They had sent the contract for a long awaited dream of ours to start publishing his children’s books! Things are now coming “together” for the grand purpose to enrich our youth and others in the process. We have worked hard on having this dream unfold. It is not in our timing but God’s timing.
“Nothing happens unless first a dream.”
“Reach high, for the stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal”.

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”
“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?”
~Robert Francis Kennedy
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
