3 in 30: May Goals
May goals have escaped me thus far...so many things I want to list, I've just gone without listing any. After a great 4 months of 3 in 30ing, I feel I'm just one month away (always) from inevitable failure.
What if I pick unachievable goals? What if life gets in the way? What if....?
Just being honest.
However, nine days in, I'm ready to list my goals. I'm ready to face this month with a defined purpose. Last week hasn't been without focus...I continued April's goals into May...and brought in a few things from previous months as well, but I'm ready for something new to work toward.
So, without further adieu....I present to you my May goals.
Drum roll, please.
1. Clean out junk drawers. Yes, we have more than one...and, yes, I want to tackle them all. (What am I thinking???)
2. Go through boys' clothes to figure out what fits, what they still like, what we need for the summer months, etc.
3. Part 3 of 3 for the Proverbs 31 goals comes from verse 20..."Her hands reach out to the poor, and she extends her hands to the needy." I'm not confining myself to the direct definition of "poor" and "needy"...there are other ways "poor" and "needy" can be defined aside from financial means. However, with so many tornado victims and (and soon to be flood victims), reaching out to the needy is just a few minutes drive from the house.
Time to get busy! I've got some goals to reach before my birthday on the 31st!
