~ A Breather ~

I was cleaning out my ever-growing photo files and came upon three that tickled me ~
thought you might get a smile from them too...

Fuzz-bucket Donkeys dressed in their Winter woolies ~~~
(Daisy is much bigger now and has become quite long-legged and elegant)


Hannah & Skyler,
always helpful, always smiling & always together...
(we love you both so much!)

Laughing Kittens
(or more simply, those that really get my sense of humor ...like Iggy)

remember to take time to enjoy even the tiniest things today...
stop for a second and just breathe ~
drop those shoulders and
...let a smile creep across your face :)

AND in other news...
I have been keeping a secret from all of you.
I have a JOB INTERVIEW today at 10:00
(((...yepper, you read that right)))
~In my 'past life'
(read: before I became a full time arteest),
I was a Dental Assistant in CT
and had a wonderful career in the healthcare field...
I enjoyed it immensely ~ but when I was blessed to become pregnant with Hannah
(after struggling for 7 yrs with infertility treatments)
I vowed to stay home & be a full time Mommy...I must say I think I've done a good job,
but now that she's choosing her path towards college & adulthood,
and since Peter lost his job back in May,
I feel it's time for me to get back to healthcare ~ to contribute to my family just a little bit more.

I am a people-person who loves to help others~
i think i can do this AND still have my beloved career in designing...
I am a positive-thinker and I know that everything always turns out ok...
SO ~
wish me luck at the dental office today,
I'll chime back in later to hopefully fill you in with good news :)
be happy, be productive and be kind.
that's the best we can do!!!

blessings from the farm,

I wish you the very best of luck in your search for employment. The economy has given us all a good kick in the seat. I DO hope that you are able to continue with your designing, as well. Can't tell you how much I LOVE your work.

I've got everything crossed for you, Lori! I know you knocked their socks off! Oh, and thanks for letting me know where you got your black tree- my daughter goes to Roanoke College, which is actually right up the street from Charlotte's Web- she went and got me the last 3' one! I guess our trees are sisters, lol!
