count down begins...

Hannah will be celebrating her 14th birthday this saturday, the 20th ~ I can't believe that 14 years have passed since we brought home a little bundle of sweetness!
I also can't believe that Christmas is almost here!
one week away...the farmhouse is snug & cozy...I've put up 3 trees this year,
one in the Keeping room, one in the Kitchen, and one in our Den~
the lights twinkle & blink to our life's backround music,
which, on any given day is the sound of
cats mewing, dogs barking, Peter, Hannah & or I talking
(read: yelling)...
(hey, he's Italian)....
How quickly a year goes by...
how quickly a baby grows...
how quickly, our weekly chores,
daily routines,
memories....
fly past...
Cherish them,
make them count,
hold each fleeting second in your heart forever...
or as long as you can...
Today will not be like tomorrow,
nor was it akin to yesterday...
Each day,
I count,
as a new beginning...
a new year?
...well....
that's much better of a beginning now, isn't it?...

Fix what's broken,
mend what's worn,
and discard those things that

just.
can't.
be. .
..fixed.
I'm speaking spiritually, physically & metaphorically....
"Too Fast, Too Soon, Too Much, Too Little," ...
words to eliminate in the upcoming year.

Words to savor?
"I Love You", "Enough", "Thank You"....
I'll sign this post with a quote from a dear Friend's signature...
"May you always have enough"
Blessed be,
Lori

May you have enough....how I love that poem
"May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human enough hope to make you happy.”
