Do What You Love

One never knows what life has in store for us. I woke up this morning reflecting on the past few weeks. I've enoyed time with family, started my blog and made many new friends, I've had time to sew and get together with friends, spent time completing things on my to do list, just going about my days in a leisurely fashion. I've been doing what I love and enjoying it.

I can say I have no regrets, I try to make each day special and always take a few minutes for myself and for my hobbies to keep me balanced. After the sad news we received yesterday it was difficult to get through the day. We were all feeling numb with grief. The day was filled with phone calls and disbelief. At bedtime I couldn't sleep so I went to my sewing room and worked on the wall hanging (one of the projects for the Charming Girls Club) and on an embroidery project to keep my mind off the sadness. Around 2am I couldn't keep my eyes open and finally went to bed.

Well, I won't go on and on, 'but I was glad I had this outlet to share my thoughts. Do What You Love and appreciate the small things in life.


  1. Oh how true! I too try to live in the moment and enjoy God's given gifts!I love your wall hanging and it will always have a special meaning. I have an afghan I made while taking care of dad in the hsopital during his last days with me. I cherish it soo much!
    Keep faith!
    Thoughts and prayers are with you!

  2. I'm so glad I stopped by to read your posts today. I thought your blog looked different. I have made major changes to mine, so I wasn't sure if I was getting things confused.
    I'm sorry to hear of such a loss in your family. It's never easy to lose a loved one, but it sounds like, as I am, that you are woman of faith and you know that God always has a purpose for all of us.
    I am glad that you have your blog to be able to share. Those who stop be have an interest, so keep sharing...we're listening...Julie

  3. Sorry to hear of your recent loss. I find tht crafting can be very therapeutic. Your comments about appreciating the small things are so very true. Your new wall hanging is lovely.

  4. I am so sorry for the loss of your niece. It is never easy to lose a loved one, and especially hard to lose one so young.

    The wall hanging is beautiful.
