My New Endeavor

I have taken on a new project.

I must first say I have never been a "diary" or "journal" writer. I have every good intention of writing in one faithfully each day only to falter, forget to write and then give up entirely.

I am hoping that this new idea I have (after following a couple blogs) will provide a source of comfort for me and I will enjoy writing each day.

Today is Day One. I have three separate books to write in. I am not writing in each one every day, rather I will alternate which one I write in.

There may be days where I need to write in all of them, but I will not require that of myself. Too much pressure. What's that old saying? :Promise less, deliver more. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

So here they are. Letters to the ones I love, Bible verses, inspiring quotes. Little pieces of me, especially for them.

Aidan's Latest Art Projet

I'm going to start off this post by being selfish and saying "No! You may not have it!". Having said that, here is what "it" is.

Aidan brought home his pottery art project yesterday.

It is adorable. I mean - LOOK HOW CUTE HIS LION IS! Meep.

I think the rafia/curly jute (or whatever you call it) is fabulous.

I will have to thank his art teacher today because this is just one of those things that a mother will keep for years.
