My word is.....


Kelly ( Charming Girl's Leader) asked us to select a "word to live by" for the New Year. I thought about it a LOT.
I finally decided on Gratitude and will spend this year working on a "Gratitude Attitude".


I will work hard to be grateful for ALL moments....the incredible and the mundane. This little bundle of joy has taught me much. To savor each moment, because they are all so fleeting.

One moment you are in awe of a tiny newborn and the next.....


.....she is already this very wonderful personality!!! She gives kisses and the dearest hugs.

I have discovered the beauty of being a Grandmother. It is all about "being in the moment" and then enjoying each moment.

It is about Gratitude!!!! Thank you Kelly for this chance to reflect on what is most relevant. Your club has been WAY more than about quilting. It has touched my heart so much and I am VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOU!!!!

Another great word! I've been working on a gratitude journal for the last couple of months. I agree that Charming Girls is much more than quilting, and means a lot to me. I'm grateful to have 'met' you!

Thank you for your comment :) How are you? I'm not sure yet, I know myself, I get obsessed with things, and end up losing interest weeks or months later, so I will give it a few months to think about it :)~Thanks for the vote though, i'm democratic, they all count... ;) xxx
