we all have dreams and goals. we have lists of things we’d like to accomplish. some are little. many are big. some we write down. others we keep playing over and over in our mind. still others we keep tucked away in our heart. we want to lose 10 pounds. exercise regularly. save more money. land a new job. redecorate our bedroom. redesign our kitchen. plant a garden. we want to learn to be a better cook. repair a broken piece of furniture. mend a relationship. we want to build a better bond with extended family or reconnect with estranged friends.
