Be present with my family.
Treat everyone I meet with love. (Including myself.)
Let go of worry.
Laugh. A lot.
Knit. A little.
Ask my kids, "What do you want to learn today?" and then dive in with abandon.
Take a walk in the cold.
Bring dinner to a friend with the flu.
Stand beneath a blanket of stars and marvel at this blessed life.

you are going to have a fantastic day
Yes! And now to turning off the computer…
Today I am going to talk to a friend and be inspired to let go of my searching…and then, after that friend has been disconnected by valleys, I will take a few breaths and think…hmmm…the perfect place will pop up…and then I will get a very unexpected call. Can’t wait to tell you all about it! 🙂
Today I gave myself a break.
And I love your babushka dolls!
Thank you for the inspirational post like this.
The dolls are sweet and that they have space is nice.
Also wanted to say about Sapphire, such a sweet story! I just can’t believe that you wanted to throw it out. Did I get you right? I mean, I share the less is more thing, constantly throwing out and giving up things, even handmades, but such a doll!? I can’t wait to make one for my girl, she’s only half a year yet.
I love this place here and thank you a lot for sharing!
Oh… I like that. A lot. Love you dear friend!
Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t offer to let her go until she had sat unloved for years. As I see it, everything should be used and loved – if not by us then by someone else. I’d rather let it go and hope it gets more play somewhere else then keep it here, unused and ignored. (That’s not to say its easy though!)
Absolutely yes. I agree that things should be used. I’m not a keeper. It was work to get here because I am a keepers daughter.
But just these days I’m so happy that my mum kept things. And my love’s mum, too. Our daughter is wearing things her mum and dad wore. She has handmade toys I played with and my brothers and sisters, too. Things with stories. When she has outgrown them I will give them back to my mum and hope she will have more grandchildren to use them. I couldn’t do the keeping, I can’t do the inbetween. Get me? But how fantastic is this pullover she knit almost 40 years ago for her first baby and is now passed on to the seventh child. More to come.
Maybe you’re just further with it. And although I thought I’m good I still have to work on it. You’re right. Let go.
I just found your blog at the exact right time! Love it.
