Living in Chapters

A wise woman once told me something I have never forgotten.  She told me she "lived her life in chapters". I listened, but didn't really comprehend what she was telling me. Does it mean that the page is already written on or is waiting to be written?  Mind you I was just starting my second chapter, you know the one where your trying to make it on your own. She was well along in her chapters.  Her answer to me was brief and simple.  Our lives evolve, we're not the same people we were yesterday, because yesterday we learned something we didn't know the day before, nor do we know what we're going to learn tomorrow because really, tomorrow never comes, it's always today. Down the road you realize what a momentous journey it is. Chapters are good.  Chapters are forgiving and meaningful.  She's not with us anymore, but her wisdom lives on.  In me.

You never know what you can achieve until you jump out of your box.  I won't say I have a "bucket list" but I do have goals. I keep pushing myself to learn new things and my life has never been boring! The rewards can be very beautiful.

You can't organize yarn......

It runs, it tangles, it attaches, it bundles, it has a mind all its own!  Spent the morning taking apart my closet, trying to decide do I organize the yarn bins?  Then I asked myself, well, ok, if you do that, will you organize in colors, manufacturers, textures, projects, what?  So, I put the newest members into a bin, closed it up good and tight, grabbed my needles, laughed all the way down the hallway! There are better things to do today!  TEE HEE

No where to be

Hello, good morning to everyone.
It's Saturday, that really shouldn't mean anything to me because, I do not have any other place to be but here.
Funny how after working, raising kids sets you up with a pattern inside you that says "its the weekend!" enjoy!  Why doesn't every day have that feeling?
The weekend arrives and I luxuriate in not getting out of bed, out of jams or out of the house even.  It feels delicious!
So, I raise my coffee cup to you and ask you to take a moment today and just sigh.
 
Happy St. Patrick's Day as well to all my Irish friends and those that have adopted Irish too!!
