"I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming...
suddenly you find - at the age of 50, say -

that a whole new life has opened
before you."

-Agatha Christie

One of my very favorite words in the English language is the word:  "stuff".  I just love saying this word!

It is so all inclusive!

As in:  "I have so much stuff to do!" or "I have so much stuff!" or "There is so much stuff going on!"

"STUFF" is what is going on with me right now!  Just "STUFF"!  So, this "stuff" is hindering me from producing fantastic pieces for my blog on a more regular basis!  Dang it!

With that being said, I just want the few people who do take the time to read my "stuff", that I will still be posting, but not on any kind of regular basis.

I will be posting when I do have a good story to tell or item to talk about!

In the meantime, I will still be reading all of your blogs and will continue to leave my comments!

Until next time ~ don't clutter your life with so much "stuff"!!!

God is Everywhere...

Out of the mouths of babes...  I remember a story from when my son was 7 or 8 years old.  

We were visiting some friends, and one of the little girls came up to my girl friend and asked her "Aunt Shannon, where is God?"  Well, she just looked at me and said "I will defer this one to Cindy." 

I just sat there and could not decide what to say, as I was thinking "well, he is up in the sky looking down..." , etc...

So, I did not say anything.  I looked at my son and asked "Eric, where is God?"

And I want you to know that without missing a beat, he replied with "God?... God is EVERYWHERE!"

I knew at that moment that he "got it~!"

Have a Happy Week!
