Today is July 15th which means our 20th challenge at Scrap That Poetry is posted!
This poem is called "Dream" by Langston Hughes.
Click here to read the poem!

Brian and I have had a dream of building our log cabin for at least 8 years, since we got married.
Our dream became a reality a few years ago... but the process has been extremely slow.
If our marriage can last building this house, we are set for life!
When you read the words to the poem, you will see why I chose this picture of us and the cabin... there were times where we almost let our dream die...
bank issues
6 months to get permits
more bank issues
even more bank issues
I think you get the idea! 
Anyway, we didn't let our dream die.. we persevered... and we are extremely close to moving in!
I hope you all have a dream and persevere!
I would love to know what your dreams are... please come join me at my challenge blog, STP and play along.  Shazza is giving away a RAK as well as you have the chance to be a guest designer with us!
Tell me what your dream for yourself, child or grandchild is with a layout, card, project, etc.
You have until July 31st at 10 am EST to like to STP.
Thank you again for following me and for stopping by to say hi!
