More Simplifying...

Life seems to get more and more busy. I thought as I got older I would have more time, but these days the opposite is true. I've decided to occasionally post simple inspirations here on my blog, with little or sometimes no added editorial content from me. Oh look, here's one now. 

I wish you all a wonderful day. Let's go be happy and do good.

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, more and more successful."  —Mark Victor Hansen

The Word Is: LOVE

Feeling lots of love for my family these days. My kids are doing their best to find their way in life (I am doing my best to let them), and my sweet hubby works so hard every day for all of us. Oh, how I love them! Everything I do is for them. 

So in honor of Valentine's Day this week, here is another 5x7 printable for y'all. Rich, you truly ARE the love of my life, and forever & ever after this life ends. Thanks for loving me!

"Will you love me in December as you do in May,
Will you love me in the good old-fashioned way,
When my hair has all turned gray?"  —James J. Walker

Okay, so I thought I had a cold but it was the flu and it was awful and let me tell you there were many times over the past seven or eight days that I seriously wanted to die. Ugh. I am starting to feel a little better but oh my has this been a tough one. I know in the scope of the world my little temporary illness is nothing, and I am very grateful for that, but it has definitely shut me right down and put some things into perspective, that's for sure.

So. Valentine's day is coming and while I am not huge on that sort of thing (we should show our love EVERY day, am I right? I shouldn't have to be told to show my love and spend money on gifts or insist that money be spent on me...), anyway, I thought I'd share a little something today. This will be available later this year as a rubber stamp, but for now here it is as a 5x7 printable. Let me know if you'd like a pdf, or an 8x10, or even another color. I'm easy that way.

Lots of things on my list to get caught up on, and I have almost no energy and I can't breathe very well, but I'd better get to it. Maybe. Just a little. Okay. Here goes. Enjoy your day!
