You just can't be everywhere!

Sometimes I wish I had super powers beyond my Earthly body....something like flying. I could be somewhere, then fly quickly to somewhere else and never miss an important moment. Well, I can't, so I guess I better just enjoy where I am at this moment...easier said than done, right!

Over the last month, we have had:
3 funerals-1.Friends 18 year old daughter, Rachael, 2. my bio-half brother (never meet him), and 3. Hubby's SIL.....we made the viewing for Rachael, but missed the other two since they were on the opposite sides of the USA within days of each other

We went to the Temple with our married daughter and her hubby/his of the most spiritual moments in my life, especially as a parent. I almost could have flown home after that because I was SO happy

Same daughter and her hubby blessed their son today in Church. It was wonderful to be with both the sides of the family in sharing such a perfect moment. Baby T did wonderfully thru the whole thing and didn't cry....actually, he was making cute baby sounds. He looked very handsome in his all white little suit. That's one beautiful baby, if I say so myself!(photos in a few days, I hope!)

I have been mulling over my life lately. I have come to the realization that many of the small, seemingly unimportant choices in my life I have a.followed someone else's direction, b.made a quick decision between paths, or c.just followed where the path was going. In some instances, this has been okay, but in others, it hasn't, and I want to change my pathway. Okay, you are saying to yourself, a."is Suzanne dieing of some incurable disease and not telling us?", b. "is she lacking sleep and a good diet, affecting her mental skills?" or c. "when was the last time Suzanne had chocolate?" Answers-a.No, b.maybe a little, c.this afternoon. I am jsut trying to grow and change like I am suppose too.

Some of the changes I am making...writing them down so I am more accountable:
1.Developing deeper friendships and possibly letting some relationships go
2.Developing a stronger spiritual belief by studying and deciding what I truly belief
3.Creating quilts/wall hanging I really want to do, and not because it's easy or convenient
4.Getting healthy for my life sake and not worrying about the numbers on the scale or the size of my pants
5.Looking to serve others and not my wants/demand/ so called needs amazing quilt photo sent to me a couple of years ago by a good friend when I was going thru a hard time. I don't know the maker, but she/he is absolutely amazing. I look at this photo when I need a boost of uplifting energy!
In Closing:Most folks set New Years resolutions in January, but I do mine in August/September when everyone goes back to school. What one goal would you like to work on....don't share it if it is very personal,(unless it helps you)

Beautiful quilt. I can see why it inspires you.

My goal is try and please myself, not worry about what other people think. I spend too much time trying to please others at the detriment to my own sanity.

Love and hugs Gina xxxx

(((HUGS))) You're awesome! Thanks so much for all of your support over the years especially over the last few months! It means a lot to Kevin and I. How much could you really need to change??? You're perfect! ;)

Hmm, my goal. Stay sane and be better for it.

Hmm... there's lots of talk about sanity in these comments!

I want to be more productive in lots of areas of my life. Just to do better. It's interesting sometimes to contemplate just what is important to me and whether those things are reflected in my behaviour and my actions. Integrity is the thing that seems to be jumping out at me all the time at the moment. Matching my words and deeds with what I know.
