so I've been thinking

I've been thinking a lot lately about life. I'll admit, something's gotten into me, and I think it's this beautiful baby girl God has blessed me with. She is growing so quickly, and I already feel like time is rushing by, and I worry that I'm missing things. Missing opportunities. Forgetting the details. I feel like I need to be a better person for my daughter. I see in her all the good that I want to be, and she makes me want to be better. What a priceless gift! I have so much to work on, where do I even begin?

A few weeks ago I really felt strongly that I needed to increase my spirituality so that I can be the best mom I can possibly be. I know I will need guidance from above. So an interesting thing happened - as I have made efforts to grow closer to my Heavenly Father, so many things come to my mind. I've made so many goals about how I can improve as a person so that I can be a good example to my daughter.

I want to be a better mother, a better wife, a better homemaker, a better cook, a better everything. I want to live a healthier, more active life. I've set goals to run a 5k in April, and a 10k in June. For you runners out there, I know that's nothin, but for a girl like me who does not work out, it's a pretty big deal. ;)

So prepare yourself for an overload. And a lot more of this:
