~Mommy Wish List~ ♥

{ My first Mommy Wish List of 2011 }

I am making this my Non-New Year Resolutions List as well:

  • I reallllllllllyyyyyy pray that my Husband can finish school this year.... ::sigh::
  • I reallllllllyyyyyy pray for some good and productive changes at work...
  • I want to be more organized this year, I think I will need it when Camila arrives.
  • To be more organized, I think I realllllllly need to establish a very practical daily, weekly, monthly schedule! { Suggestions Accepted here! }
 [ STRUCTURE is needed...MORE structure in our everyday lives]
  • I want to wake up early and read my Bible; I used to do sooooo good at reading it every night with Ricardo and we would pray and talk...A LOT about God, Faith and our own personal beliefs....we've lost that in the last 16 months. Makes me sad. Life is busy and weighs you down.... I guess....
  • We need to make it a HUGE priority to attend mass EVERY Sunday again.... it's been really hard since Santi's stopped napping at noon and became mobile. I know EXCUSES! We just need to go...we have not been regularly in MONTHS.... 3 to be exact! (So embarrassing....)
[Accountability is what I am after. ]
  • I want to make some ME time and spend more times with my Girlfriends; Maybe set up some play dates and take Santi to some new places before his sister arrives! 

And uhmmmm that's it.
 A short one.

 I want to be practical in the goals I set as well...
I can't make a super huge list full of too many over the top commitments...
Just those that really matter to me....

My Faith, my Marriage, my Family and my life.

My life, LIKE EVERY OTHER MOM & WIFE out there trying to juggle; Faith, Husband, Children, Work, Home and extras, gets very hectic and chaotic.

It's difficult to Be, Do, Create, Teach and Move {But we manage!}
...it's a lot of work to be a Mom and Wife, Sister and Daughter, Friend and Co-Worker...our roles as women are sooooo diverse it's amazing we look as good as do doing it all!


I just hope that my goals this year are attainable and manageable...and I also pray for His will to be done...and not MINE!

{ Matthew 26:39 (New Living Translation) }

39 He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.
