Though we can never leave life without experiencing some measure of loss, grief, and pain, misery is optional--as is happiness.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

Well, fall is gone and winter is here. Wait isn't that what I said on my last blog post? No...I think maybe it was summer is gone and fall is here....anyway. Christmas is over. I got almost all my projects done but I forgot to get pictures of all of them. I made Itty,Bitty Poochie Bags to hold the gifts for my granddaughters. I crocheted an afghan for my six-year-old grandson, and made a quick quilt for my five-year-old grandson. I didn't get the slippers done for one of my sons-in-law but they will be done soon. My daughter and her husband and kids flew up from Houston. It was wonderful to have everyone together. They fly back home tomorrow morning. I have a few days before I go back to work. Maybe I can get some quilting done. What a novel idea. Maybe Hummer will still work for me. I sure do love that machine. It has been raining all day and somewhat gloomy with fog every now and then....at times very beautiful....at times depressing but I really do enjoy rainy weather as long as the sun appears every few days. I'm ready for a new year.
I'm a mother of four, grandmother of thirteen and have been happily married for forty-four years. I have worked for the Oregon Trail School District for the last twenty seven years as a library technician. I share ownership of a Gammill Quilting machine with three friends.
