Ok, Ok so I have been neglecting my blog..........

Joy.........
That is what I am filled with!! Joy and thankfulness for each and every day God sees fit to give me. Busyness fills each of our days but the interesting thing is that we are not victims of busyness but willing participants. I am slowly learning that I do not have to accept every invitation, save the world or have arms like Michelle Obama. I am learning new priorities and setting new goals for myself. I love being my kids mom, cooking homemade meals everynight and then sitting down and eating them together. ( well, that is the goal....) I am striving to not "schedule" myself, every hour of every day. To be available if a friend is suddenly in need or to be able to take out my bike and enjoy an unusually warm 68 degree day in Michigan in November....now that is a gift!!! I want to "Be still and know that God is God".....to read my bible and really study it, not just go through the motions. I am
enjoying sitting still and stitiching and hooking and repurposing clothing for my fashion loving
daughter. I encourage those of you that feel so much pressure to be super woman to take time
to reflect on what is important to you and then to ACT on those priorities. Feel free to say NO
to a few things, I am giving you permission!! :-) Love your life instead of just going through the motions. Most of you reading this blog are very talented, gifted women......take time to use those gifts to express your love for your friends and family and not just to make a buck.....sorry if that sounds harsh, it is not meant to. Well, I guess that's all for now......I am off to do nothing.....hahahahaha. Well maybe not nothing but off to enjoy the blessings God has given to me.......FAMILY and FRIENDS!!! Blessings to each of you and Happy Thanksgiving.....take time
to be thankful and look back on all God has provided for each one of us this past year. Even in these economic times we are a blessed people......people all over the world would change places with us in a heartbeat!!!
With Joy and Thankfulness until next time,
Sarah
