Fearlessly loving parenting
Brutally honest

To raise a happy daughter who has the courage to be herself in spite of the pressure to conform
To write a book (who doesn't have this.)
For my photography to make a positive difference
To stop questioning my ability
To be a foster parent
To eat less cheese
To have an upstairs bathroom
To not be so greedy and accept that I am lucky to have a bathroom when so many people don't
To finish this website
To run further than to my car
To have chickens
(and a runner duck)
To not kill plants
To create a paint for snail shells so they don't break when we stand on them because it makes me cry
To be the person I know I am capable of being not just sometimes but ALL the time
To be as wise as my friend Jamie
To accept that all is ok even if I don't manage everything that I have aspired to do or be
