A simple place to capture the moments of my crazy life

Window of Sunshine

on October 24, 2010

Ohhhh … the sun is out … a slight window of sunshine in a world for grey and rain – this is the part of fall I dislike, the rain – it’s cold and damp and grey. In the spring when it rains, it’s warmer and the world is turning green so the rain is “tolerable”. But fall rain, is so blah and putting the world to sleep, waiting for winter to arrive. The winter brings a whole new world of opportunities, and although it’s cold, the world is bright again. Well, I’m awfully “thoughtful” this morning. HA!! I’ve just sent the girls outside on a walk with dogs, Peter is getting ready to leave for the grocery store, which means …. I GET QUIET TIME!!! Hot coffee, my computer, and quiet time, this is what Sunday mornings are meant to be!! So, I have been scrapping up a small storm again lately — so it’s time to share!! I love show and tell time!! HA HAHA

Journaling: one of the toughest things to teach yourchildren is that it is ok to need a break, that it doesn’t mean you are weak, or lazy. Knowing that you need a break shows signsof maturity, wisdom and self-love. My hopefor all of you is that we have been slowly teaching you that life is busy, and it’s ok to need a break.

Journaling: Sally, sally, ohhh my sweet sweet friend, although we haven’t met in person yet, I can honestly saythat I feel as though I have known you forever. Wehave been chatting online, for almost 4 years now, first it wasjust in the forums at Oscraps, we then graduated to HELLO, ohthe memories with that darling program, I miss HELLO, with the little blue falling LOL’s, and the scattering of pink Hearts, when HELLO left, we moved onto YAHOO!! "It’s Ok I’m Here Now", thesignature of one of our arrivals for an evening of chatting andscrapping. We have laughed together, cried together, been awee bit crusty with each other, been through births and deaths,sickness, healthy times, drama and traumas together, all frommiles and miles away from each other. I feel as though I knowyour children, your husband, as if I chat with them on a daily basis as well, you are all apart of my daily life, although we have never met. We have lived through hurricanes, and snowstorms, disappearances and meltdowns. Through thick and thinI know above ANYTHING else, that when either one of us hearsthe little man on the screen say, "It’s Ok I’m Here Now!!", that it’strue!! To my Texan Best Friend, darling I love you, I appreciate you,I support you, and I thank you for loving me in return. October 2010

    Hi girl! You did wake up inspired this morning! But I guess the change of seasons motivates & moves the soul. Not much for weather changes here… 😦 …the temperatures are a bit lower but not enough to go and grab a sweater or make one feel like spending time outside. The ac still feels good inside my house!
    You’ve created some really nice pages this past week! I specially love the one for the journaling challenge! Love your touching words and believe me I can relate to having this wonderful feelings of friendship toward some of my digi friends even if I’ve never seen them either! How wonderful of technology to give us the opportunities of meeting nice people, don’t you think?
    Take care and many (((hugs))) to you.

    Oh… I guess there are different seasons for everybody, eh? I love the fall rain… it’s soft and misty, or strong and ferocious, and it gives me permission to hole up inside and be even more comfy because I know it’s cold and rainy out!

    Love your Texan BFF story!
