words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

When life gives you lemons.........

My whole world has been turned upside down.......
Now I could let this get me down, and I did......for a short while, but now it is time to put on my big girl panties and tackle my life.
So that is what I am going to do.

I have started a new chapter in my life, not one I was ready for, but one I have to do.  My husband and I have separated.  Painful as it is, he and I are trying to remain strong and work on problems.  It takes two and as I remain optimistic and I also must be ready for the worst.  The worst being that he and I can at least remain friends.  No one can ever have to many friends, and I don't have time to waste hating anyone.

So, with time on my hands I expect to be sewing more, blogging more and returning to a quieter time.  I have found that I have let go of alot of important things in my life and I want them back.  First and foremost, my faith.......(not husband fault) but I need to have it back in my life.  I believe very strongly that everything happens for a reason.  I found myself a new church and return last Sunday, I walked out feeling very hopeful.  Second, my friends, this too was no one fault but my own.....tonight dinner with Joyce.  Last (for now, but definitely not least) tomorrow Shayne and her husband Richard are helping me set up my sewing room and its back to what I love to do most......SEW!!!!!  Yes it is going to a very hard and long road to recovery, but I am strong and I believe in myself.  Yes, I can, and yes I will.

So, wish me luck and stick around to see me make some awesome lemonade out of all these lemons!!!
