Today the weather is SNOWY ...
The house is WARM
After a couple of overnight stays,
The Grandchildren have all gone HOME
The house has sort of recovered...
the Peace and Quiet is
I'm Loving this stage of my life...
I've been married to the same man for 30+ years.
I've raised 3 daughters and I think they have all turned out pretty well.
I have TWO great son-in- laws who now love my girls.
I see little grandchildren just enough to love them
and have a special relationship with them.
We have sleepovers as needed.
I still get to hear little girls giggle.
I don't have to worry that someone
will starve if I don't feed them.
My husband can cook .
And the best part of this stage of my life..
my life has a little more space!
space for Sewing...
Space for a sewing room...
Space to buy fabric!
Space to be creative
Space for love,
Space for pretty things
Space to do as I please
and take care of me
because it makes me feel loved.
At 55 and on the downhill slope of life
I think that is ok :).
SO on that note let me share with you
