creative energy


I have been creating quite a bit lately and it feels so good....I am really in my "element" when I am creating! I finished a canvas I had been itching to try for weeks and I really like the way it turned out (must take photos), I also finished 2 interactive layouts from Karen Russell and am working on a mini-book all about our home.


Today we are off to my grandparent's "farm" to spend some time with my family and hopefully get in some rest, relaxation and maybe even some scrapbooking......it's so nice to have built-in babysitters on weekends like these :)


And although I know Memorial Day is generally a time to remember our fallen soilders, I am overwhelmed with thoughts of my baby brother and how much I wish he were coming to be with us this weekend......how I wish he could have met our little Grant and how I know he would be so in love with Sienna (and think she is hilarious).....how I wish he were taking Kaleb out on the lake...so much sadness still almost 2 years later, but I must remind myself that God's plan is perfect and although it is OK to feel the sadness, the pain, the regret, I must also have faith in God and know that everything is as it should be.


So this weekend, we will be with family, and I will continue to work on being in the moment and to remember to enjoy the journey and be open to the lessons.....

I can't imagine what a loss it is to live through every holiday with the loss of your brother. I am so sorry. Thank you for sharing.
