Sunday Greetings to You All!! Hope this day finds you filled with
|Take time and find joy in today! Delight in the little things. Celebrate the sweet peeps that stand by you, no matter what, everyday. This day will only come once therefore make a joyful noise!|
This photo is posted to my Instagram feed and my Facebook page. To my real peeps responding - I'm responding back with a heartfelt message of joy and love because I think its important to make sure my loved ones know just exactly how much I care about them - some I've never even met and I think that is so cool! Have you stopped and taken time to do that today?? Have you celebrated the little things?? I sure hope so. Today only happens once you know. ; )
*This is a lengthy post so this is your pre-notice. : )
This picture will also become part of my December Daily/ Journal Your Christmas album - yes I jumped on board this year and actually I didn't even plan to - ha! I started taking pictures on the first and consistently kept up - yay me!
Then I instragrammed my friend Ashli a.k.a. soapHousemama (love that!!) and asked if it was too late to sign up for JYC20102 (Journal Your Christmas) with Shimelle because I actually continued taking photos everyday!! - she said no way and I was all about it because honestly I needed some focus and the sense of community to help me get grounded. So here I am with photos in place and thought I'd share those while I'm in the process of getting my album together - I'm a slow creator these days. So sit back and I do hope you enjoy a glimpse of my December so far. : )
|My handsome boy (actually a young man now - but always will be baby) standing in an old bank structure left as a historical landmark in our town square. He chose the pose - love that he was a willing participant.|
What a special treat to walk about with my son in town after he had his driver's ed course. I love that he still wants to hang out with me at 16 - how blessed I am. We walked around and chatted and just enjoyed each other.
|Out and about on my own - our town is the Christmas card town - kinda cool, huh?|
|This was the 6th of December's sunrise at my house - breathtaking to say the least!! There are no filters added to jazz up the colors - only some bokeh hearts over the top along with the text. For me the text says it all.|
The love of God is better than my wildest dreams and I hold fast to this as my doctors have told me my medical conditions have come to the point of disability. I used to be a classroom teacher and for some of you that know me well - you know this was the highlight of my life after being a wife and mommy. I loved each and every one of my students as my own. To hear this news was devastating - I held the hope of going back to the classroom and to know it was gone - well The love of God is better than my wildest dreams and there is much to come for me. My path has changed and I feel new things on the horizon - great things are to come!!!
|On this day I began creating - my intention was to really get going on my album - but I get distracted easily, LOL. This CD and mainly this band keeps me going. I received this in the mail - a gift. All things come at just the right time. Love that!!|
With the above CD going on my computer I was able to finally grasp some time to create - my space has been a bit of a disaster so smaller seemed more achievable. I love handmade ornaments and since I'm pondering alternative options for a tree this year (thanks Amy!!) with 4 mischievous kittens (love them to bits - but they will be all up in a tree and I love my sanity more ROFL) in the house now, along with our other two that loved the tree too much last year - I went that route.
|Not quite sure where these will hang if we don't actually have a tree but DD and I have some ideas up our sleeves - you'll have to stay tuned to our creative Christmas decorating. ; )|
|Noel had to be in the mix - made 5 of these total. Wish I had more Maya Road rulers on hand because I was in the zone.|
So there you have it - a peek in to the first week of December with me. I have so many more pictures from this first week but these are some of my favorites. It will be oh so much fun gathering together my thoughts and placing them in my journal to be documented for years to come.
Thanks for hanging on if you've made it this far! I'd love to know what you've been up to this December so do share. : )
Take good care until next time - Scarlett
