My Little Girl Dream

Doesn't every little kid have a dream? A dream about who they want to be like or what they want to do when they grow up. I had LOTS of dreams! Like when I was really little I wanted to be Daisy Duke and have a really awesome Jeep. Then I wanted to be a Veterinarian and take care of horses. Horses, horses, horses. It was all I thought about and all I dreamed about. Then in the midst of horses I heard about this cowgirl chick named Charmayne James. It was all over from there. I WANTED TO BE....Charmayne James! Cause SHE was awesome!

Charmayne James is a barrel racer. She is the holder of more World Championships than any other woman in Professional Sports. But back when I wanted to be her I didn't even know about all of her championships and all of her titles. All I knew was that she had saved a horse from "being put to pasture" when she was just 14 years old. Now how cool is that? His name was Scamper and he was not much more than a bucking bronc when she got him. But she saw something that no one else saw. She saw his potential and slowly but surely turned him into a legend. And that is why I wanted to be her. I wanted to do something really great like that. I wanted to make my mark on the world! But at the time it was the rodeo world.

Needless to say I didn't become the next Charmayne James and I didn't save a horse from "being put to pasture". I guess my dreams have changed a little cause I know realistically that at my age and in the state of Maryland I'm not gonna be the next big rodeo star or save a rotten horse. But, I'm still looking for my sharpie so I can make my mark. I just have a much broader canvas to mark on now! And one day...I'm gonna find the perfect spot! When I do everyone better watch out cause I'm gonna go CRAZY! I'm already excited about it! It's gonna be great!

In the meantime...I guess I'll change a few diapers and teach someone their ABC's. That's pretty great I guess...don't ya think? I think so. Maybe I'll throw in a few 123's for some added greatness.

And maybe organize a few closets. Cause Lord knows the world is a MUCH better place when it is organized! I guess I covered that yesterday though huh? Speaking of yesterday...y'all aren't holding me to that are ya?

Just kiddin...simmer down....I plan on starting my first closet tomorrow. Things got a little out of hand today! Tomorrow, tomorrow, there's always tomorrow......
