Dream Maker

Our children are children for such a small season of life. Let their laughter ring out, their imaginations soar, their feet stomp in puddles, their hands clap for joy. Too soon they will grow up and out of their youthful exuberance and zest and settle into the life and routine of adulthood.”

L.R. Knost

This quote came to mind as Caleb our 2nd born, asked if I could drive an hour to pick up a calf that he wants to raise. I had to pause a few minutes to ponder if I could swing it.

Thankfully, I came around to say “yes” to his dreams and put aside the to do list, schooling, and chores to make it happen yesterday.

Bonus ****

– Time in the car together

– Talks about how to raise a calf

– A visit to the feed store

– “To go” lunch which was a treat

– Lessons on the farm

I can find myself caught up in the daily grind, but want to make sure that I leave space for helping our children find their desires and dreams.

I should be the poster face for Honda Oddysey.
“Not just a mini van for soccer moms- but farming mamas too! Built for kids, parents, and calves!”

Can I be our children’s dream maker? I hope I can leave space for doing just that – being a dream maker!


Instead of raising children who turn out okay despite their childhood, let’s raise children who turn out extraordinary BECAUSE of their childhood.”
