So much to be happy about

Well I have been a blubbering idiot in the last few days. No reason..every reason. Who knows? But two really good things happened to me today and yesterday. First I won a contest on tallyscrapper called winner takes all. Now that sure rocked! I should be receiving about 6 different packages of misc. buttons for scrappy stuff! Tee hee...funny that a small things like buttons would make me smile. However I got a huge surprise today. I got a card in the mail from my chemo pal's mom. She thanked me for all the cards and treats that I have sent her son. She sent a picture of their family to me and told me the best news of all. He is in REMISSION ! Oh did I cry about that. I am so touched about this. Typically patients and/or their families are not likely to contact their Angels. It is understood that it is just done on faith. Wow I am so happy!

Other things going on... I am teaching a Pocket Card class at the Red Bee on Feb 20th. You can see the link and info here http://theredbee.com/classes.aspx . I have included the photos because the ones on the website are a bit unclear. The class cost is $18, kit included in the class fee. It will be a fun and easy project. Hope to see you there!

2008....what's to come ?

Well another year has passed and yet I am just a bit wiser ;0). I have made resolutions just like everyone else this year,but this time it isn't about losing weight, it is about staying grounded, trying to take the higher road and learn the art of patience. Life can be a bit challenging at times..we all have our own battles. I read this on a post on tallyscrapper today and I decided to post it here.

Someone will always be prettier.Someone will always be skinnier.Someone will always be smarter.Some of their houses will be bigger.Some will drive a bigger car.Their children will do better in school.And their husbands will fix more things around the house.So let it go, and love you and your circumstances.Think about it.. .The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in their heart, and the most highly favored Woman on your job may be unable to have children.Ands the richest woman you know;She got the car, the house, the clothes might be lonely. And the word says, "If I have not love, I have nothing."So again, love you, Love who you are. Look in the mirror smile and say,"I am blessed to be stressed and too anoited, to be dissappointed!"Winners make things happen. Losers let things happen..

Such simple words that can make a person really reflect upon what is really important...so this is it for today...feeling philosophical.

So dearest friends of mine and those new ones too, my message to you is
FOCUS GIRLS FOCUS ! Focus on what really matters to you. Ya know the important stuff :)

With much love :) ME
