Wow!! I didn't mean to be gone so long. Funny thing about life, one gets busy while living it. It has been busy but I can't say I see anything around me to show why, you know what I mean. With Valentines Day coming up, I was hoping you could take a day or two and get away, so I put "Pure Michigan" over in the Discovery corner so you could get some ideas. If you prefer to go to a warm climate, try the Phoenix Visitor Guide. I lived in Scottsdale for a year and a half and there was ALWAYS something wonderful to see and do. Actually that is pretty much the way it is wherever we are, if we take the time to look.
I wanted to make a point of remembering a friend, Bonnie Hajek. Bonnie passed away on January 9th and her niece was kind enough to let me know. Bonnie was only 63 and always took the time to make those around her feel comfortable and feel good about themselves. She had an engaging smile and what seemed like boundless energy. Thanks, Bonnie, for many wonderful memories and the reminders that good home cooking, gardening, friendship, caring for others, and many more things are important to a warm and welcoming home, which you opened to everyone. You are missed and you have left a treasure of those memories for anyone who knew you and loved you.
My dear friend, Linda K. telephoned last night. What a treat that was, to talk to her. She has been creating and hearing her wonderful projects always inspires me to do "something". Some days you need that inspiration to just get off the couch!!! I am just listening to the weather and think I will stick with being "inside" today, but not necessarily on the couch. Linda has me wanting to poke through my "stash" and make "something". So..........that is my goal today, to make something.
Funny continuing in "One Day at a Time", here is what Pat says:
"All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action."
On the page she has drawn a heart within a heart. Her action for the day is, Telephone someone you haven't seen lately.
That is exactly what Linda K. did yesterday.........it made my day and made my week.
Let's try to pass it on.
