It has been awhile since I created a journal page. This one is in regard to having another child. After every child I have had thus far, I have said, quite emphatically, 'this is my last!'. Again, my maternal clock is shifting into over drive. As my daughters get older and closer to going to school, I am struggling with what do with myself. Should I go back to school? Volunteer? Start a business? As I really have no clue and almost daily, it seems, my ideas and dreams change, there is one thing I know, I am a mother. A good mother. It is something I can't quit and will never regret doing. The one job I have always been on time for and the one I will never regret devoting my life to. So, perhaps, I'll have another. Someday. No, I am not pregnant. :)
Damn it. Spring better get here soon, cause I really think I'm starting to loose my mind.. another kid??? What am I thinking???
We are getting more snow today.. more!
I love old spools of thread. Wooden spools that hold fragile strings, those that snap quickly if pulled to hard.
Friendships have been bound by them. Quilts for newly weds and newborns have been stitched together. Holes patched, and hearts healed by a single thread.I love unwinding an old spool, slowly removing the signs of age to reveal the original, crisp hue. That is the one I use. I use it in my embroidery. The antique threads that show their age and if pulled too hard, snap.
So I can ponder and dream of sodden fields, flower buds and things with wings.
Thank you Gail for hosting! I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

As a long time blogger here and on MySpace, I know how frustrating it can be for those who want to make their blog their own but just don't know how. There are alot of really cool sites popping up all over the place, such as TheCutestBlogontheBlock.com. If you know a few key pieces of info tho, you can personalize your blog your way too. It does pay to have a basic understanding of HTML. I first learned how to decipher it while using MySpace. Originally that was the only way to personalize your 'space'. Now, it reads almost as a second language to me. Here are some great sites for HTML help. Although, you might need a basic knowledge even to understand them. but give it a try! You never know what's going to happen, just be sure to back up your blog code first!
