The question has been asked, and it is very poignant this week. “What do you want your legacy to be?” For me it is simple, I want to live in relationship with those around me, and online, in a way that is meaningful and full of love. I would like to be in deep with people, trusted, and able to trust. Considering where our family has been this year – trust, is a hurdle right now :) Any way, everything else flows together if my relationships are good.Working on this quilt took on new meaning this week. I learned that a young lady, Jessie, who has been fighting a rare cancer, passed away. We know her family a bit (long story), and I cannot imagine the mix of emotion that they are dealing … Read More »
This week I’ve just felt – off. No real explanation, just off. My sewing machine was put away for a whole week! That could have something to do with it. . . but more of me thinks it has to do with life circumstances and changes. School is around the corner here (19th) and the summer seems to have flown by! So much that I wanted to do with the kids but haven’t done, for one ($) reason or another. I have also felt a bit isolated lately, since January I haven’t really had many mom type friends here locally to share life with. My family is my life, I cherish each waking (and sleeping,) moment, wanting to enjoy this time in our lives. I’m not really sure where I’m going with … Read More »
oh right – everything!
It’s weird how one little thing can make everything seem stressful – but it does. My younger 2 take afternoon naps usually around the same time, while my older 2 play outside. We have worked into a nice summer schedule :) Only today my girls didn’t go outside right away – just having fun inside – and so Owen was woken up. They are never quiet, and why should they be, they are kids! It just sent me today – Owen whining in his crib, and them invading my quiet time.
I got them plastered in sunscreen – and sent them out. Ah a little better.I left Owen in his bed – he wasn’t screaming just whining – he went back to sleep. Lots better.A phone call from Joe – “Don’t … Read More »
I was on my way to pick Ella up at VBS today, and started to panic. Just a little. I was on my way to a different church in the area and realized that I could run into people from our church that had caused it’s demise. Yes it is a small town, and even smaller churched group.
I was thinking how would I respond to that question now? How are you? Back in January, I remember thinking, “please don’t ask me.” I didn’t want to respond to them harshly, or bawl my eyes out on a Sunday morning. I also remember, “please ask me,” I wanted to know that they actually cared about me the way that I did them. I would like to think that God has brought us through the … Read More »
Earlier this week I was tagged by my friend Jennifer. A round of ‘like to get to know you better.’ So here goes!
~The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
~Each player answers the questions about themselves.
~At the end of the post, the player tags other people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
What was I doing 10 years ago?In 1998, I was a Junior in college. I met my husband that year and was extremely busy studying and working. Vanguard University was my home for 4 years, while I poured over books and made great friends.
Five Snacks I enjoy:
I forgot to tell you on Tuesday I responded to a offer for free fabric – and emailed in time to get in on the action! I never win anything – the last few months I have commented all over blogland, to no avail. But Valori Wells designer for Free Spirit was giving Olive Rose fat quarters to the first 18 people to email her. Just when I was needing a fix too! They came today – I am so excited. Of course my girls want to know what they are for, I have to figure that out still. I will keep you posted if I come up with anything. Thank you Valori!I also got a haircut today! I was a bit overdue, pretty sure I last had it cut before Christmas. … Read More »
I had been formulating a different post in my head – but now as I am trying to sleep, my mind is full of words unwritten. I started my blog to connect with others and promote my etsy shop, but find myself drawn to sharing more of my personal journey. There is so much more to me, and my family than what has been posted here previously and now I feel so strongly the need to share.
You see in January my husband I were hurt. We were betrayed when a covenant bond was broken in our church. Where he was the pastor and shepherd to a small congregation. When things got difficult a few members of his board decided that the church would be better without him/us and in our “best interest” opted … Read More »
