Day 412 ~ #5 of My 30 Days of Truth...

My 30 Days of Truth challenge   I will admit that I changed one question and changed a few curse words... other than that the challenge is intact. 

Day 5: Something you hope to do in your life.

This is a no-brain-er!  

For as much as I think about what I would like to do in my life... well nothing else compares.

There are two things I hope to do in my life...

One... help others.  Just to be there for a fellow mom going through tough time... another woman who feels alone... to support someone in their time of need... to help another person unjustly treated... just to help one person feel better... be happier... feel loved... at least one person.

The second thing I would like to do in my life is to have all my children with me... to take a family vacation {at least a month long vacation} and spend a wonderful holiday with my sons, daughter and family.

I just can't think of a better thing to hope to do in my life...

Pure bliss.

Okay...I am going to sneak in a final thought here... about my last night's post- it does have something to do with tonight's post as well... I spoke of forgiveness.  Forgiving others to be exact.  I spoke quite generously about... point blank... forgiving all who had done me wrong.  

I would like to make this perfectly clear.  I am not doing this for "them"... I am doing this for me.  More so because I am tired of walking around having all this negativity within my soul.  I am doing this to free myself from all the wrong in the world.

I hope to be able to free myself from the "baggage" that has dragged me... the events that took the sparkle out of my eyes and took the soul out of my laughter.  

I truly hope I am able to do all these things in my life.
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice. ~Psalm 112:5 (NIV)

I have heard it said that having unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting it to hurt the other person. All it does is hurt you. That is so true. I think we all have struggled with this at one time or another in our lives. I know that I have. Will be praying for you. Blessings!

I'd like to have my family with me for an adult vacation sometime in the future, too. I hope each day I do something that benefits someone else. Anyone else. Live that way and life seems to work itself out.

Keep going, Carla!

Those are awesome things to do! I particularly like the family vacation thing!
