|When I first started this blog a few years ago, I remember that one of my new years goals was to learn embroidery. It has took me several years to accomplish some of my goals but i am getting it done. I am not great at it but I am trying. This is a sampler that I am doing that teaches you the different stitches and letters. I am learning this from Mary. She is a great online teacher.|
|This "O" is hard to do. I am not sure that I can do it but Phillipians 4:13 says I can do all things. So I am determined.|
|This is another goal of mine. "To show myself friendly" and get with old friends and new friends. This is the "VP Girls". We all went to high school together. From left to right is "me", Penny, Cindy, Ellen & Teresa.We are trying to get together once a month and hope to add more VP (our high school) Girls to the group. I also had breakfast with my good friend Gayle this week. And got a phone call from my best bud, Vicki. Years ago my friend Ellen begged me to go to lunch with her. She gave me her number several times and then life would happen and I would forget. I wanted to, I just was so busy. I am busy now but I am making time to be with friends and it is so much fun. We also have some new friends...our hunting buddies, D & Rog. We haven't got to be with them much this year and miss them so much. I hope we get to see them soon. And then there is my blog friends.....what can I say? They are a blessing to me every day. I feel like I have known some of you for years. |
So another one of my goals of being with friends is becoming a reality.
Snippets From My Heart
I am realizing as I get older that every day is a gift. Every friend is a gift. My family is a gift. When I wake up in the mornings and think of the work I have to do, I want to always realize that every day is a blank page and I want to fill it the best I know how. I am slow at reaching my goals but I am so proud to know that I am reaching some of them. I am just glad to slow down and smell the roses. Life is a vapor that appeareth for a little time and then vanishes away. Another one of my blog friends, Connie has this on her blog. I love it.
This is the beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.
What you do today is important because
you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes,
this day will be gone forever;
in its place is something
that you have left behind...
let it be something good.
