Thoughts on life

This last week has been really sad. A local teen was killed in a rollover car accident. She wasn't wearing her seatbelt and was ejected. She was only 16 years old. My daughter is 14 and wanting to drive. This is something that scares me. Watching this girl's mother grieve for her is really hard. I know that could be anyone of us as mothers. This has made me want to hug my kids harder and longer. It is also hard to let them out of my sight as if that would make them safer. It is hard thing to do is let our children go off on their own. I just don't know if I could bear losing a child. It is something no one expects and is hard to prepare for. This also brought back all the recent funerals I have been to. They were all different... my nephew's was a testament to his ability to bring help people with anything. He helped people overcome addiction to drugs and live a better life by encouraging people to go to school. My FIL's funeral was about a person who lived a long life and was very obvious with his faith. He always had an opinion and spoke them openly. My mother's was more about her family and how she helped us all grow up to be very different people. I hope people will remember this girl with fondness and love. So everyone hug people closer to you, you never know when it will be your last.
You Are Sunshine
Soothing and calmYou are often held up by others as the idealBut too much of you, and they'll get burned
You are best known for: your warmth Your dominant state: connecting
What Type of Weather Are You?

Happy Valentine's day!!!

My hubby is the best in the whole world. He always remembers my birthday and Valentine's as well as our anniversaries. I saw he left me my Valentine this morning before he left for work. I have to finish his gift/Valentine this morning. He is always so thoughtful. Not to mention all forgiving for all my misdeeds. I like Valentine's day. I usually always make my own Valentines. I wanted to get some out for my family but never quite got that far. Well, there is always Easter...

Now, on the Craft front>>> I have completed another dishcloth. I am working on my prayer shawl still...getting closer to done there. I have almost completed a heart dishcloth.. just have to knit the last 4 rows and bind off. My Irish cable scarf is still very short. Hope to concentrate on that this week. I am cheering on all of the Olympic Knitters. I just couldn't enter I have so many unfinished things to complete thought that Finishing some things would be a better idea. So that is my knitting update.
Scrapbooking. I did complete 12 Valentines for my women's church group. I have started my Dh's Valentine just have to find pictures of the kids and do a few more pages. Have a long list of layouts to do have to get organized to do them. I have completed all my swap things just have to get them mailed. Someday...I will get some what caught up.
Lots of ideas not enough time or energy.

Have a great Valentine's day...kiss someone.....

Your Fashion Style is Classic
You like what's stood the test of time...Simple, well styled clothes that don't scream trendyYou stay updated and modern, but your clothes stay in style for a whileYou wouldn't be caught in animal prints, fake fur, or super bright colors

New month, new style?! I don't know...but the weather it seems is going to change into more winter like in the next few days. Thanks, Phil(the groundhog). I certainly have enjoyed this winter it has been wonderfully warm by North Dakota standards. Can't really complain about it at all. I still am looking forward to spring. I really love the mild weather and the birds singing...which by the way some birds have already returned to ND. So I am getting more into the spring mind set. I need to get some scrapping done this week. I did finish one layout this week. But need to do more family ones. I also have to get some Valentine's cards done. Lots to do and no time to do it. Tomorrow is errand day and Saturday we have a basketball game. Sunday is the Superbowl and church so if I am lucky....I might be able to get a few minutes on Sunday but not likely. Oh well, there is next week. Let's week will be less crazy basketball ends this weekend but I have to serve at a game next but after that I am freed up a bit. I am looking forward to it. A quiet week....not sure I know what that is....
