Live, love, laugh…such simple words, but words I take to heart. There are never enough hours in my day to do even half of the things I would like to do. Maybe I try to bite off too big of chunks of what I want to do, what I need to do, and of what others expect me to do. But no matter how crazy my life gets, I try to incorporate my words to live by (live, love, laugh) into each day.
Family is extremely important to me. Life is far too short not to spend time with these special people in some way each day. My husband supports me in all of my many interests in life…writing, traveling, making quilt art, playing in my gardens, whatever my heart desires at any particular moment. My daughter supports me in so many ways, including designing my websites and fixing the many computer screw-ups I manage on an almost daily basis. And the rest of my family is there for me whenever I need them. I live for them all and love them with all of my heart. I laugh with them, too.
Beyond my family, I enjoy traveling anywhere, at anytime. I’ve been fortunate enough to see so many interesting places over my life, places I’ve read about or heard about. I’ve been in the jungle of Mexico and looked up at a Mayan pyramid. I’ve walked inside the partial ruins of ancient castles in England, Scotland, and Ireland. I’ve stood at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower and looked up. I’ve ridden on ferry taxis on the Grand Canal in Venice. I’ve walked along the beach edges in California, Texas, Florida, and France. I’ve been to New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., the Grand Canyon, and so many more places. But I will never see enough. I will always hunger for one more trip.
