There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

I really miss sewing.

This is a photo from
my first craft show
I participated in Texas.

Just some thoughts lately:
It is so easy for illness to cut the confidence,
attack our personality, and end relationships.
 Each day I keep thinking ~ saying to myself,
 “I can accept this illness without
allowing it to define me.”
Since August, my life has
really changed.  I do not take
a day for granted!
because of the severe breathlessness
I get, I am limited to my
activities I love dearly.

I don't blog much about
my problems...just
wanted to say what's on
my mind.  My posts have
been few lately due to
health issues.  So I have
decided to continue my
blog and share my
little creations and vintage
finds with you dear friends.

Blogging has allowed me
to meet so many wonderful
people, and share in swaps
during the year.

Most importantly,
I am so thankful and blessed
for my wonderful husband Don,
and close family members.

Just a note:
Free shipping on all holiday tag
and card listings this week in
my Etsy shop.

Thank you for your visits to
my blog and your kind comments!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Hi Sharon,
That is a great photo! Maybe you could start sewing again since you loved it so much and sell your things on your etsy!
Take it easy and one day at a time!
