Starting up

There are two fatal errors that keep great projects from coming to life:

1. Not finishing, and...
2. Not starting."
Author Unknown

Thank you all for your sweet comments. I don't really know why it has been so difficult for me to get things posted lately. I guess the "not starting" thing is my big problem. Our family has had such wonderful things going on and we have been extreemly blessed. I really need to get it all written down.

So today I have decided to set some blogging/journaling goals for myself. Infact, I am going to set some goals in a few other areas of my life as well.

President Spencer W. Kimball said concerning goals:
We do believe in setting goals. We live by goals. We must have goals to make progress. Our total existence is goal-oriented.

Wow! Just what I needed to hear.

Look out world, the new and improved me in on its way.
