"Friend, what are you waiting for?
The bright moon shines above us.
There are no clouds tonight.
Why bother to ask about lamps and fire?
Why talk about cooking dinner?
Who is searching and who is finding?
Let us just enjoy the moon, all night."

"Fall Moon Festival" by Thich Nhat Hanh

Its easy to imagine being so small in the nature of things.Painful even,to believe that our lives contribute so little in the timeline of humanity.And so today,I choose to make it matter,to make each day count,more than the last,and to never,ever forget to be thankful for another day.
I see faces around me growing older and wiser.Soon to be but a ache in a loved ones heart and a question will arise and be heard with a whisper in the wind,....What will I be remembered for?

It's reality to be reminded of our insignificance.To be reminded that each day that passes,is a opportunity lost,a gift given,a blessing.In the daily world of to-do's I loose myself in task,forgetting to...look up..breathe in...kiss more...laugh loud..hold kindness...but with my heart open I learn again.

Today I make a choice..what about you?

We have a winner!!!!!!Congrats to Norma Jean Adams!!!Norma posted:
"I am grateful for the gift of prayer. A sweet communion and connection with God, who is hoping and waiting to hear from us!"

I managed to squeak out some new listings for tonight.The first a mini altered wooden block named "Dec 25th".It measures approx 5 1/2" and I also used premium paper,rub-ons,wire,stickers,glitter and beads.

This piece was originally selling on Etsy as a necklace.I think its better suited as a ornament,
since I used
the bottom part of the tin.
I used stickers,
and Swarovski
of it is encased
in the resin
except for
the metal
charm and
beads on
the bottom.

I've received so many messages about where the first song on my playlist is from and so if you don't already know,I simply love Jane Austen's books and the movies made by her books.The first song comes from the last film version of "Pride and Prejudice" starring Kiera Nightly and Mathew Mcfadden. The scene below,my favorite.It has it all,the scenery,the rain,the love,the hate,...the words.(You can lower the volume on the playlist,on the bottom of the page, if it starts to get to annoying while you sit back and watch.)
