Thank you so very much from the very bottom of my heart!
2013 hasn't been my most productive year in stitches however the things I've accomplished personally in my life (physically, spiritually and mentally) and those most precious moments spent with my darling husband and most wonderful children, has been most worthwhile - and truly is where my heart lies. My life is such a spectacular blessing and I intend to grab it with both hands and live it fully, faithfully and actively while I thank God for all His many blessings in my life.
For those interested, here is a slideshow of my 2012 stitching finishes... (minus a huge model that took up about 3 months of my stitching year and will be revealed in early 2013!)....
In the New Year, have you made resolutions? I haven't, really other than living life with zest, zeal and enthusiasm - living life authentically. Remembering to live life by the golden rule to "do unto others as I would have done to me". Living life following the "golden rule" is hard, but I get up every day knowing that "today is a new day" and rejoice that I have another chance to try to follow my path in life. So...that's what my continued goal is....being a light in a harbor of darkness. Of course, my light fails from time to time, burns out, gets foggy....but that is a part of being human. Another part of humanity is knowing that if you set your mind to it, that light can get brighter, or you can change the bulb. If we all turned our lights on and tried to help our fellow man in his search for safe harbor, how wonderful would this world be? Pretty wonderful, I'm thinking....
I've got my New Year's new start all lined up and ready to go! What about you?!
