I was sitting today...lamenting that it is almost 13 months since I have been here...Thanksgiving is tomorrow...and I STILL don't have this done...or that....or I decided it was time for a reality check...I went back over the pictures of this house....mostly looking for inspiration...and to get my buns moving into doing SOMETHING!

But...I started feeling a little shamed....looking at my pictures...and I started thinking..." are a paradox"...Ungrateful on the eve of giving thanks....for all you have...I have utterly worn out my Muffins...all my pictures are of them working...or sleeping...because that is what I asked of them....Nothing like a little humility to show you the way to a change of attitude!
My loves...
My beautiful Grand Babies...

I was sitting here utterly thankless for what I have...I needed to change my view of things....

Same views...different attitude...

From the true spirit of Thanksgiving...A picture paints a thousand words...and these? paint THOUSANDS upon thousands....Thankful? ABSOLUTELY...


  1. Absolutely wonderful. You inspire us everyday, and because You are who You are, we work everyday to make our world a better place. And who would we be if we didn't try to do that! You give freely and We love you for that!
    With Love
    The fuzzy one on the couch.

  2. I love you Muffins...A WHOLE BIG BUNCH!

  3. I know this is an old post but I just have to say you have come a long way!!!!!
    My before pics are very shameful too but I am your biggest fan. My home is where we all stood hand in hand through the toughest times and came through it all. Keep it up. I will be blogging about all the not so fun stuff we need to do to whip our homes into shape. thanks and CONGRATULATION.

  4. Oh Caroline! thank you! I think we all see the "afters" but what it takes to get there? Wow...I cannot wait to see yours!


I love your comments and insights!
