The people who lived in the home before us were avid … Continue reading Day 28 of 30 days of gratitude…nature!
I typically have "off-the-charts" high energy! I get up early and go to bed late because I LOVE everything I do and want to fit in as much as possible.

As I approach the 7th year of building my laptop business from home (that started out part-time 10-15 hours a week, and has become full-time, 20-25 hours per week), I am reminded of the early days of fear, hesitation and trepidation I had.

When I UN-intentionally missed my 20th day of gratitude yesterday, after an incredibly busy day, I woke up early this morning in a self-induced panic. Followed by a moment of reconciliation that allowed me to come to terms with the fact that nothing horrible was going to happen if I missed the day, life would … Continue reading Day 20 of 30 days of gratitude…forgiveness!
We just had some Hi8 films from our OLD video camera converted over to DVD's to view (will be another blog). WOW does time ever go back fast. I shed some tears thinking about how little my babies were and how quickly they have grown. Makes me think about how important it is to ENJOY … Continue reading Day 19 of 30 days of gratitude…spontaneous silliness!
