Living The Dream

Five Minute Friday


Today the word is DREAM.

I struggled for a bit about where to go with such a broad topic.

I thought about what my dreams are and what they used to be. I thought about the dreams I have for my marriage, children, summer, etc and then I dawned me…

I have had different dreams for my life in different seasons. Some have morphed and some changed but I can with full confidence tell you that today I am living out my dreams.

It might sound shallow, selfish, or boastful… but that is not my intent.

I have a healthy marriage (not to be confused with perfect), awesome kids (not to be confused with angelic), and more than we need of all the materialistic stuff.

I love my people and the life we live.

I really never thought I would be able to type/say, “I am living the dream” and don’t get me wrong…

1) I went through some hell to get here

2) We have plenty of issues we wrestle through regularly

3) I am darn sure there will be more struggles in the future.

But God is good all the time and all the time… God is good.

So for now… I am living and embracing this dream I call life.


This post was part of a link up called Five Minute Friday. It is an opportunity to join Kate Motaung and other fellow #fmfparty bloggers to purely blog for five minutes based on a prompt or word of the day so please excuse the chaotic thought processing.

  1. Ditto your 1…2…3… I can honestly say I’m living my dreams too. I am also hopeful and excited for the future and all God has for me and my Bennett Zoo 🙂

  2. I feel so blessed to. I know God is guiding and directing me. He takes care of my family. Life can be hard, but I love living a dream life with my loved ones. Thanks for sharing.
