In light of Monday's holiday and Martin Luther King's famous speech, I decided I needed to post an update on a little dream of my own. Granted, my dream is nowhere near as amazing and selfless as his for equality, but important to me nonetheless.
A long time ago (and by a long time ago, I mean last July) I posted about my dream of running my own event/reception hall designed to look like a rustic barn. We have nothing like this in our area and really the closest reception/event places are a good 20 minutes away.
I want to make THIS happen in our area:
Does it look like I want my reception hall to look? Absolutely not, but all I could think when I saw the big "For Sale" sign go up was, that could be where my dream happens. It is a rectangle building with good bones and a parking lot and isn't right on top of other buildings. Yes, it is a dated brick and has a steeple, but I am enthralled by all the potential.
However, it is for sale for $350,000. That is money I can't even dream about having.
I want it with every fiber of my being. I cannot even explain how my heart squeezes when I go by it. But, there is no cure for this feeling, at least not right now. I am in no position to quit a steady job to chase a dream that is too far from my current reality. So, I am just doing sketchy drive-by's and dreaming of how I could turn it into something beautiful... while praying for an amazing sponsor who wants to be a silent partner and offer me tons of money. One day though, it will happen.
Do you have a dream?
