How are YOU?
I am fine. I've missed you very much this past week. Yes, I've cleaned and organized, but I must admit that I've spent an awful lot of time with my swan family. And yes - you know me - I said "my swan family." Of course they are not really MY swan family but my heart likes to think that they are. ;-)
I must tell you that the gray sibling got into something and had to go to the vet. The baby is FINE but will not be returned to the pen. One day, God willing, he or she will be returned to the lake.
BUT our Easter baby is doing beautifully! I check on Little One about three times a day. Such a precious creature. How I wish all of you could sit with me on the grass when I visit. But, you know what?
So, yes, while I have been tending to Daisy Cottage and many other things, I have also been busy creating something else. And again - you KNOW me. I can NOT be creating SOMETHING.
And this is when I need to talk to you about where my heart is at ..
As I shared with you at the beginning of this year, I am at a personal crossroads so to speak, as many of YOU are too. I so understand and feel you as we go through this together. I am trying to look at this crossroads as an opportunity to grow and bloom. And as far as the creative side, lets see.. do I want to contemplate writing a book? And if so, what about? Or do I want to create a Miss Maggie calendar? Or do I want to finally learn how to knit something using more than the garter stitch or I know.... actually read my camera manual so that I can grow in my photography?
I am going to share something personal about me. I have abandonment issues. Yep. This is true. I don't really know why either. Maybe it stems from losing my father to cancer when he was just 52 and I was 24? I don't know. All I know is that I have them.
So guess how old I will be on my birthday in June?
Therefore, I am very aware of this blessed path called life and how each day is a gift. I also want you to know this my BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS:
I will not abandon you.
If you will have me, you are stuck with me. ;-)
But yes, I have decided to listen to my heart and follow the path that I am now being called to be on ... whatever that may be. Where it will lead, I honestly do not know.
Sooo, while I will not be posting here for awhile, you can find me at my new site that I have created to share my photo images. I hope so much that you will stop by when you can because it won't feel like home until YOU do.
And I promise that I will share more images over time that will reflect my love of color and all things home because that is ME.
And always will be.
I love you ALL very much. I really hope that you know that. Some of you have been with me since the very beginning of this blog and some of you I have only met TODAY. There are NO words to describe how much you mean to me. So I am not going to even attempt. I will simply pray that you KNOW.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. FOR YOUR LOVE. FOR YOUR GIFTS. FOR YOUR WORDS. FOR YOUR PRAYERS. FOR YOUR SUPPORT. FOR YOUR PRESENCE. FOR BEING MY BEAUTIFUL SOUL MATES IN THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
To quote Olivia Newton John:
I love you. I honestly love you.
