Now THIS makes me smile!


I read the comments, on my preceeding post, and I see that there are some folks who clearly don't agree with my post. That's o.k. and if I deleted those, I would be doing the opposite of what I'm trying to do. So they are there, and I actually agree with some of the points. I am not attacking anyone, let's just make that clear. I am not attacking any particular blog. I am not going to expose anyone as a fake but myself, which is what I'm talking about here. I just want to portray the real me, I just want you to know I'm human. That's it. Now I may not tell you ALL my faults, I mean who wants to hear that laundry list. But I guess I just want to be a little more of the person that I am, and not try to make anyone feel alienated by me. Is that so wrong?? I'm not trying to bring anyone else down...so don't feel attacked by me! I love to look at pretty blogs too! I just don't like the self- indulgence that I sometimes see. That's MY problem, not theirs. I see that. I know I'm insecure at times. I try not to compare myself. Most of the time I succeed. Sometimes I fail. I'm human. Did I already say that?

I love you guys, all of you!

From one human "being" to another, thanks for being so "real" and wonderful, and talented, and sweet, and compassionate, and a mommy, and....the list goes on!

Have a great day!

I have meant to comment on your posts. Whoo Hoo! As a mom, wife, crafter, employee, daughter, friend, homemaker, volunteer, feline-parent, I often get overwhelmed by what I see in some blogs. I'm constantly having to remind myself, they truly are a perfect snippet of someone's life.

You have spoken beautifully, then and now. Be as you are on your life journey...fully human.

Enjoy YOUR space! I know I will. And more so now then ever, I will mine, too. We've room for all of us and more, safe in the "anonymity," open when we wish to be.

Ok, so I am so unorganized right now that I even posted on the wrong post, so check out my comment on your LAST post, k? I try to be postive on my posts, and I try to be in my daily life too, but it sure was nice to know I'm not the only one just trying too hard!!!! Thanks for that dirty kitchen sink pic, you really don't want to see mine!!! LOL!!!

Lila,
I love your blog- it is a reflection of you and your humaness- that is wonderful that you will take a risk and share that with others. You show that you live a rich full life- what better way to live.
I love your new bag and your new fabrics-so pretty..
I have my own blog now- if you would like to see it you can check it out at:

I still want to use your pattern to make the beautiful bag- hopefully one day soon.
Regards,
Anna

Ignore the negative people. Maybe they're having a bad day or something, but unless they're telling you a better-faster-cheaper way to do some technique, or sharing a fabulous fat-free chocolate recipe, who cares?

Say a little prayer for them and move on.
