We are born with dreams and hopes that change and grow over the years. When I was in the seventh grade I wanted to be an architect. As a highschool sophomore I committed to being a preacher. While in college I dreamed of being a poet. In my mid-twenties I wanted to be a theater director. In my thirties I dreamed of being a speaker. In my forties I struggled with writing a novel. Some dreams take us farther than others. Some dreams dig their claws into our souls and don't let go. Other dreams float away like hot air balloons. Don't be afraid of your dreams. They give us hope.
