It is a beautiful morning here in Tampa Bay today. Already 83 at 9:00 in the morning. And it is Finally Friday! I don't want to give the impression that the week was no good...but in Florida, well, probably lots of places, we definitely live for the weekends. However they are calling for rain...but there is still plenty to do here even when it rains!!
As you know from the earlier blog, I have started to make the trek into learning digital scrapbooking. I was so reluctant to venture into this area. I don't know...maybe I sort of knew I would love it because I love to play with software! Combine that with scrapbooking and I probably thought I saw a sure addiction...which I was right.
Scrapbooking in general has been a blast! I found the absolute best forum, Memory Makers Magazine Forum, where I have met the most wonderful people in the world. Now I have started the digi classes and am finding another fabulous group of people. Makes one stop and think.
I don't even know if I can put this all into words so that it is really what I am meaning. So I hope you get it...if not...think about it for a while!! We all have so many things in our lives. Family responsibilities, work, our cars, houses and all our other toys. We become so involved in the things of our lives. But...
Remove all these "things" from your life and what do you have left? Each other. I have been seeing this more and more as I have been "maturing"! Doesn't that sound so much better than aging or getting older?? LOL Things don't really matter. Look at all the people who have lost every possession they had in the floods and fires which we read about with such heartache. When you see them on the news reports they say...but we have each other.
These last few months I have needed so much help with things and someone has always been there to help. My darling daughter has bailed Mom out so many times...friends on the forum...helping out with problems and giving tips for things...Terry of Terry's Tales...giving so much help with my digi classes...Family and friends. Not being there just to help when you need it...but just being there, period.
I don't know...but the way I see it, while there is much to be said of the material things in our lives...who of us doesn't enjoy them??...I am just saying that in the end...what do we have??...
...we have each other. Isn't that what life is really all about?
My thought for today.
