3. save my pennies for the beach
4. learn to sew
5. family comes first ALWAYS
6. write more letters
7.  HE must become greater ... i must become less John 3:30
8. read more
9. tell those who i love in my life why i love them in my life
10. God... others ... myself - in that order
11. be a better listener
12. when a friend stops over ... stop what i am doing and just enjoy the conversation
13. Answer all phone calls ... exp. from friends and family... never hit ignore
... gulp ...

14. Be still and know that HE is God
15. allow myself to be more in the moment
16. let my light shine
17.  tackle something new ... for instance today that would be replacing the whole inner part of my upstairs toilet... gulp ... good thing my mama is here and unlike me
good thing she tends to finish things until completed.
18. finish more projects that i start... er ... or maybe just finish the ones i have already started.
19. start each day in the word
20. just simply ... love.

All in a name ...

i am in love with something i have been working on

it's a piece for my own home
a piece that is so personal ... so emotional for me

you see i believe that ...
 sometimes decorating your home does not mean
to fill it with items you have purchased
or items that hold no meaning

too often i feel you walk into someones home and you have no idea who they are

you get no view into the person who actually lives there
what their interests are ... where they came from... what they enjoy
and i am a big believer
in that your home ... well it should tell your story

your home should be made and not bought

a home needs to reflect your heart ... your loves...

and well this piece ...

a beautiful copy of my father's third grade

cursive handwriting skills

which also includes the month i was born

yes ...

this piece speaks my heart
