All My Dreams Came True

This morning I was going thru the routine. You know - makeup, hair, all of that. I was thinking a bit about the legislation that passed last night to break up big banks. I thought about my job with a giant bank, a job that I really enjoy w/ a company that I just.plain.love. I thought about the devastation it would bring to this area if this building closes. I wondered what we would do, since Charlie works here too. And then I realized something. Growing up, I didn't dream of getting this job. I just didn't. All I really wanted was to get married and be a great wife and mom. All of a sudden it hit me, all of my dreams have already come true. So, if this liberal administration wants to take away my job, and my husband's job, they can. But they cannot take away my livelihood. I don't have to let them. And they certainly cannot take away my family. My dream has already come true. God did that.

I'm tired of breaking news updates on my phone. I'm tired of oil spills, floods, and liberal government getting their hands in every piece of our lives. I'm over it. My dreams have come true, but sometimes I'm too busy tweeting or reading tweets or updating my status, or reading statuses, or blogging or reading blogs (yes, I realize that it is totally ironic that I'm currently in the middle of blogging, but...stay w/ me here!) So, its time for a break. The world we live in has more information flying at us than any other generation could've imagined. Maybe thats one reason why there aren't enough hours in the day. So, I'm taking a break. I won't be writing blogs or reading blogs or tweeting or facebooking or googling. And even as I type those words, I take a deep breath. That's not easy for me. But I just need a break. Twitter, including Fox news updates, are officially turned off. So, if this whole thing crashes around me, someone will just have to call me and let me know, I guess. I'm too busy watching my dreams come true all around me. In the midst of total chaos.

great! I can't imagine having the news on my twitter~ well, if I had twitter. lol I rarely watch the news, so when "they" call you~ you might have to call me. ha
Oh, and all I dreamed about was having a baby, or 3 or 5, and being a teacher. Guess, I'm good on that one, too. God even threw in a husband even though I don't really remember asking for one. ha

I can totally relate. In this age of technology, we should have more time but we have less. I am so guilty of getting caught up in things like facebook and such that don't really matter...not like my family and God! Great blog post and a great challenge for myslef too.
