Pillows

Last year I wanted to make something for my family and I got the idea to make pillows. I wanted to make so many more, but my Dad passed away in the middle of this and it set me back and I got behind on what I did do. I really enjoyed making them, they went fast, the only hard part was thinking of different patterns or stitches to use...but I loved how they turned out and everyone loved them :)

Farewell Guiding Light


Today is a sad day for my family...its the last episode of Guiding Light...to me its just not a show, its part of my childhood. Many memories with my grandma, aunts, cousins and my mom watched this show or kept up with it thru each other for 4 generations. My Great-grandmother started listening to it when it started on radio in 1937 and then when it came on TV in 1952...I'm very sad to see this show go...Thanks for the memories GL

Inner Peace

{I love this and wish that all people could read this and apply it to thier own lives, I don't remember where I got it from, but I try to read it often}


Inner Peace

How do you know when you have gained inner peace in your life? You begin to draw emotional boundaries, which negative and toxic people can’t cross. You stop giving your power, time, money, body and sanity away to people and conditions that can steal your joy and purpose.

You begin to simplify your life.You begin to value quiet time.You don't feel insecure if you are alone.You begin to trust yourself more.You begin to trust God more.Your choices in food, fun, family and friends change for the better.You sleep better because you let go of worry.You spend time with the people and activities that bring out your best.You don't spend a lot of energy trying to fix or rescue other folk.

You change what you can and what cannot be changed, "it is what it is!" You have gratitude for the things God has brought you through and make a conscience decision not to dwell on the things He "didn't do".

Life lessons learned help you to bounce back with more resiliency after setbacks, disappointments or loss.You focus less on the mess and stress and have more gratitude for your blessings and success.You are liberated from shame, anger, fear and guilt.

REMEMBER PEOPLE:" Our job is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible!"

For Those You Love...


Smile each day for those you love.Let them know by the brightness of your facethat you are happy they are in your life.
Even if there are times you argue and disagree.Touch each day those you love.
Hold them close, even if brieflyThe human touch is one of the most comforting things in our world,and one of the most reassuring.
Speak softly each day to those you love.Those whispers of intimacy that tell them that what you say is important.
But meant for their ears and their ears only.Muse quietly each day of those you love.
Allow yourself to find those thingsthat you truly admire and respect in that person.Forgetting, at least for the moment, any of the negative.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable to those you love.It is a most frightening experience to be without shields,But it can also be the most wonderful flight in the worldTo find another holds your spirit carefully within their heart.
Believe that you deserve those you love.Your love is the most precious giftthat you can bestow on another human.
You deserve to be loved in return,without constraints, without reserve.Be honest with those you love.Let them know how important they are in your life.
Take care that they never have to guess at what you think and feel. There may come a time when they walk away. and then would you regret not telling them? in all possible ways?
