While nothing in my world (or anyone else's for that matter) is PERFECT, I've had a headache all day long....the list goes on and on....still, all is well...and I am content. I am content because I believe in the promise given to me in the Bible verse that is sewn on the pillow case above, and I am content because being content CAN consist in being happy with what you HAVE, not what you DON'T have. (Right!?!??)
So, I am content. I am well. Are you? I hope so!

She is COMPLETELY anal about so many things, in an OCD sort of way...but yet, she is SO like me in so many other ways....she found those ultra-coolio butterflies up there, and they are now hanging on her yellow wall....next to the very vintage Pooh and friends curtain....which has to be shortened...but was way too good and mitchy-matchy to pass up for a buck. The yarny goodness you see up there is in my living room, residing on the back of my couch.....it was also a buckaroo at the GW. (And so were the butterflies, acually....) Gotta love the G to the W. :)

Barb: I'm glad you handled that...I got mad and had to walk away...
Abby: Well, Barb, I've learned that you normally catch more flies with honey.....
Barb: I didn't WANT no flies!!!!! I just wanted the free telephone they promised me!!!!!
Moral of the story: Know what you want. Go after it. Don't stop until you get it. But be SBB whilst traveling the highway to reaching your goal. (You'll probably get there faster that way.....)

There are a handful of things that have happened in my life that I have *really* learned from, and one of those things happened 2 years ago today, about this time of night, that changed our worlds forever.....crazy as it may sound, I miss many people...one dead, many alive, that were changed by this crazy event....(I know you're smiling from Heaven now, Grady.....that is where my peace from this situation comes from.....)
It is because of that day 2 years ago, combined with a few other memorable days I shall never forget, that cause me to see little things and view them as joy....I try to enjoy each day of LIVING...I try to LIVE each day. (That, my friends, is the majority of the reason that I turned my life, and the lives of those around me, topsy-turvy this year.....and I'll refrain from any more details on that for now....) As well as living, I try to be thankful and participate in *life*....and therefore, I've been spending m0re time outside than ever.....
I've been picking squash....zucchini....peppers.....cooking.....sharing.....giving.....and I've enjoyed being, well....satisfied. With life. In general. With being happy. See the harvest of our work????? I've made it no secret that a way to judge if my life is going "well" or not is by my ability (or inability) to create.....and I'm LOVING how these babies have turned out. Now, to hope that someone that happens by my booth at the Nashville Flea Market this month feels just as excited about them as their creator!!!!!
Something I remember doing from my childhood is watching the clouds....this was a passtime that was spent with Keith (the neighbor) and my sister....and now, Makayla....I took this a week or so ago, flat on my back, staring at the sky, making pictures out of the clouds with her. What a fun memory.
We know that color makes me happy....and I love the randomness that represents my son and his haphazard way of living that makes him so stinking annoying....er....endearing.....he and Anna (definitely her brothers protege') created this.....

Here's a quote for today: "Life shirnks and expands in proportion to one's courage." ~Anais Nin Good things that happened to me today:
1. The sun was all shiny-like for most of the day.
2. I had all sorts of my kids running around me most of the day.
3. I was productive, at least somewhat.
4. I laughed and smiled.
5. Kate is feeling so much better today! I think she's turned the proverbial corner! Yee-haw!
