Happy New Year 2012!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful, safe New Years.  I sat on the couch and stitched so mine was GREAT!  =) 

I am not really into making resolutions, more into adopting life style changes.  This year I am going to make daily attempts to live in the moment and not feel bad about things that I haven't done or look forward into things I need to do.  I don't know about you, but it seems to me that time just flies by so quickly.  It seems like yesterday that I had babies, and now all of my kids are in school full time and in just the amount of time that I have had kids they will all be gone from my home.  I know that the time between now and then will go by quickly and I will be wondering what happened to those years of my life.  I think that as we look ahead to things to much we loose this moment right now.  For instance..Christmas is so many days away...and the next thing, etc.  If we are always looking to those forward days we loose today and other days in anticipation of "what's next".  So I am going to move forward and do what I can each day to be happy in that day.  Play with my kids, stitch a little, etc and just try to be present so that in 12 or so years when I have an empty nest I will feel like I really was present and lived those years and am ready for the next chapter in life. 

Well...next post will be needlework.  I know I haven't posted any projects for a while...well I have a lot to show you..so stay tuned!!!
