“Love is what’s in the room with you
at Christmas
if you stop opening presents and listen.”
Bobby-age 7

Are you as smart as this seven year old?

I think Bobby is exceptional not just as a seven year old kid but as a person in general. Opening Christmas gifts can be a time of chaos with all the noise and excitement especially with  kids in the room. It is rare that adults stop tearing at the wrappings of gifts to listen and almost unimaginable for kids. If you have someone (of any age) around like Bobby you have been given a great gift.

Sparks 7


“Every life has a purpose.
We need to let go of the past. Live in the present.
Do not waste today worrying about what will happen tomorrow.
Embrace your true spirit, embrace and listen to grace
and be transformed in the moment.
Do not fixate on what you want
but give thanks for what you have.”
Caroline Myss

The present is a gift of grace given to us one day at a time. 
Being thankful for the gift brings undreamt-of blessings.
Then our purpose is made known to us.

Annie at McGuffy’s Reader says,
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive…There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change.

A Talent You Have

A talent I have is doing needlework.
I can sew, embroider, cross-stitch and crewel, knit, and crochet.
I learned to do all these as a child.
I learned to sew in school home-ec classes.
The rest I was taught by my grammas.

My favorite is crochet.
I enjoy crocheting, it is relaxing and meditative.
Whenever I make a gift I pray as I crochet
for the person who will receive it.


I am grateful for my grammas and all they taught me.
Crocheting being just a small part of the knowledge they shared.
