Kindness and Pledge

An excerpt from an email from a good friend:
"Be kinder than necessary--everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Live Simply
Love Generously
Care Deeply
Speak kindly

Leave the rest to God!"

Pledge

Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and
downs I pass through,
I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today,
and forgive ...

Thank you for the blog comment. It's nice to know Im not the only one that sleep eats. I've woke up in the bed with a 1/2 eaten poptart in my hand. Not sure why I do that.

but the other day - I had exercised ALOT - I mean a lot. And I think I was just hungry.

Stay in touch k?
Rhonda

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I'm glad you like the quilts; that's high praise from another hand quilter. Right now I have a 120" x 120" double Irish chain in my frame. I don't even want to think how long that one will take emoticon

I am also working on a quilt-as-you-go reversible; that's a new experience for me. I am enjoying it, though.

I hope to have them both finished in time for our guild quilt show in September but I'm not sure - summer/riding time is rapidly approaching ... I hope!!!

You're right - the stable owner's accident is a reminder to never take safety for granted. Some folks laugh at me - but - the first thing I do when I get out of my car (at the stable) is put on my helmet; and heading home ... removing it is the last. 99% of horses would never hurt a human on purpose but they're big and even the quietest one can get stupid when frightened or hurt.

I don't spend much time on SP these days; there always seems to be something pulling me away from the 'puter but I did want to thank you for touching base.

Don't forget to post pics when your log cabin variation is finished. I love that block - it's so versatile.
