New Year's Resolutions

To be real honest ~ I'm not too big on New Year's resolutions, simply because I know myself too well. However there are some good for me guidelines I try to follow day in and day out every year. To name a few:
*Endeavor to love the Lord My God with all my heart, soul, and might (and teach the little ones to do the same)
*Try to be the best I can be, comparing myself only to MYSELF (trying not to get hung up on my shortcomings when compared to others) - my victory in this one waxes and wanes!
*Love my family and friends as unconditionally as humanly possible
*Live at peace with all people as much as it depends on me
*Remember the order of the day (and moment) should always be KINDNESS (NEVER rudeness)
*Spend as much time as I can get away with being creative!

Of course there are many other MUST DO things for all of us. There's always, housework, housework and more housework...
But in the famous words of Scarlet, "Tomorrow IS another day"!
So, quite frankly my dears, I will most likely float through yet another day of NOT tackling the major disarray of all my knitting/crochet books & assorted paraphernalia that practically screams at me to tidy up a bit. (Notice in the picture of the book case there is still a wrapped Christmas gift waiting for a friend to return home!) What a mess!!! Oh well... I'd really rather spend my time loving on my granddaughter, playing with puppies, drinking tea, and staying elbow deep in yarn!


For now I leave you all with my love and teeny weenie poochie moochie kisses! Be blessed today!

Thanks Vashti!
I owe the "prettiness" of it to Renee Thompson who can be found at www.thompsondesign.etsy.com

Okay Danette, you just had to find one little ole closet to prove that you do have a little mess some where in that beautifully clean home! Is that really the best you could do? Just go back to moochie kissing gabby and knitting with the pups all gathered round! Even your cluttered closet looks great!
