Out Of The Blue

I have been pretty quiet lately but doing a lot of thinking and searching. I was wondering what my next move will be and how to achieve goals that have been set. 

Knowing what I want to do is a non-issue. I'm currently having a supply and material issue. It isn't very big but annoying nonetheless....so in the meantime I do what I can albeit with frustration settling at the threshold....just hanging there, going nowhere fast. 

Today is my first day of doing anything concrete and in the process I came across this post by way of StumbleUpon. For me, it couldn't have come at better time. 

After reading lesson #1, I was hooked. I continued reading the following lessons and came away not with new ideas but focused....realizing what my next move should be. In a way I already feel as if I was centered in a lot of what was written in the post or heading in the right direction. 

It helped me to also see that I have resources at hand that I had forgotten about or just plain neglected. Supplies are not the real sticking point as much as materials and that may not be as large as my mind has painted the picture to be.

I'm not ashamed to admit waning determination has been rolling around inside of my head and dragging behind like a comet's tail was giving up. So when stuff happens, I guess the next time I'll throw up my hands and say...


....and keep on moving.

It's Always Good

Tomorrow is TheWife's birthday and she had the day off from work today wanted to spend it with TheGrands and Darcel to celebrate. 
when we got there, we were greeted with hugs. 

After awhile we went to 'the beach'...it's not really a beach but a place where you can be close to the water and enjoy some 'quiet time'...except for the cars and trucks zooming by on the freeway. If you zone yourself, you don't even notice the sounds....and the kids love it.

 

My knee was bothering me so I couldn't do much walking and stayed behind while they walked ahead.


There is an area for sitting and it also has a bell and a plaque. Some of the bricks honors cancer survivors, those who lost the fight and family members giving them remembrance. 


It's called "Mary Ellen's Bell". After I took the pictures, I rang the bell and remembered my dad and my brother. The emotions that flooded me caught me by surprise in a way...I sat in silence and read the names and comments by others that were beneath my feet on the commemorative bricks of the survivors and loved ones who lost their beloved.

Sitting there gives relevance to the time we have to spend with the ones we love.



TheWife was really happy and the kids had a good time. It had been awhile since they saw UncleR.

I know I don't always say how much I appreciate these moments, but it is always good to see them and spend time with them. I love to see the pictures Darcel and Charles post in blogs and on Facebook...miles and miles of smiles.

It Just Takes One

It's funny sometimes how things work out or just plain Divine intervention...a wake up so to speak. Any number of people can tell you the same thing over time but when one person speaks it, you finally hear it. You actually stop to breath, and it feels so fresh. It puts things into perspective again. That happened today. So that coupled with what I have and haven't been doing brings a welcomed collision. 

What I haven't been doing is finishing some projects I started, but that did give me time to take the time to review what I have been doing with my designs and some other things I could be doing. So that got me started.

I have been busy coming up with some new designs and was in the process of putting products on the site when the server crashed. I did get a few items up but not what I really wanted because I didn't have the images in my basket on the site yet. 

So I'm actually pecking this out instead doing that. But this is one of those things I haven't been doing and has bothered me more than I should have let it. One of those things that I have struggled with the past few weeks. I haven't felt like writing or doing much of anything on the social network (which I have trouble with anyway), discouragement settling in and getting a pretty good grip.

Then out of nowhere, the words come to light and they shook me. A much needed breath of fresh air. So thankful that it finally clicked. It just took one.

A Gifted Talent Given


Let the talent of the talent shine

Brightly as gifted it was given, absolute

Astounding, the beauty of the gifted talent

How bright the talent?...matters not

Resting it aside for still of time, wasted

For it is not the one to give the talent light

But true to the giving, it is His light shining

Once the talent is motioned thru space of time

Wonder not the beauty to the eye

Savor in His gift, the talent given to shine
