Hello

Hi everyone,
I haven't posted anything here in awhile & I figured I would since I recently changed the look of my profile! I will try to post every week from now on so you'll all know that I'm alright! Went to the Drs. yesterday & everything looks good except I have a vitamin D deficiency but the Dr. put me on some vitamin D so I should be fine! My little baby granddaughter Leah, who is 4 1/2 mos. right now, got her very first tooth a couple of days ago! She's growing like a weed! I will be posting some of her pics & scrapblogs on here real soon! Well, it was nice chatting with you all but I have to go now! Be back next week, I promise!


Luv to you all!
Sherry

Cycle Of Life

As we walk through the world, the people we encounter appear so different from one another. We see babies, old men, pregnant women, and teenaged boys. We know couples on the verge of marriage and lonely widows. We interact with toddlers and the terminally ill. As different as each person seems, they are all living the human experience. They are just at different places in the cycle that begins with birth and ends with death. Every phase of the cycle of life has its gifts and its challenges. Each stage is temporary and ultimately gives way to a new phase. This ephemeral quality makes each phase precious, because it will never last.




One of the wonderful qualities possessed by babies and young children is that they are unaware that a cycle of life even exists. They simply are present to wherever they happen to be right now, and they don’t give much thought to the past or future. Being around them reminds us of the joy that comes from living fully in the moment. On the opposite end of life’s cycle are our elderly role models. They are a reminder that each phase of life should be treasured. Time does pass, and we all change and grow older.




Being aware of the cycle of life and our place in it makes us wiser. As we develop a true appreciation for the phase we are in, we can savor it more. A new mother going through a difficult time with her infant can more easily embrace her challenges because she knows that her child will grow up, and she will long for this time again. Difficult and challenging periods are inevitable, but – like everything that is a part of the cycle of life – they are temporary. When we are fully engaged with life, we get to savor and grow from each phase, and we are ready for the next one when it arrives. Fully embracing wherever you are in the cycle of life is the very essence to happiness.

A Kiss




Parallel Universe

I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe!

Peace Within


May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are.


Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.


Love and Blessings, 
Sherry :)

Creative & Physical Exhaustion

I feel so exhausted today both physically & creatively! I went to my oldest daughter's bachelorette party last night, although I had a really good time, it put a real big strain on me today, as I was up til 6 a.m. & slept only til 10:30 a.m., I just can't seem to create anything at all! The rest of this week, I have to prepare for the wedding ceremony & reception & then immediately after that, I have to start the planning of the baby shower for her! I seriously don't know how I am going to pull all of this off! So, if you don't see any new SBs or posts from me in the next week, you'll all know why! I have to go take a long nap after I do a few things on the computer so, I'll chat with you all later!
