I have actually been at odds with myself for a while over whether or not to keep my other website going for digital design. I am now on my own with no help that I had before, floundering about how to get back into designing, if it is the right direction... and the list goes on. In my heart I had to give it one more try somehow so have kept the design site open and will try again. It will mean learning all over again with a different computer and no one to back me up, but I have to be true to myself and try. This post seemed really appropriate under these circumstances.  Be positive and move forward somehow, regardless of how small a step I take, go forward. ~P

Well, it has been a long time. I am no longer in France, I am back in Michigan. My husband passed away July 2, 2013 which changed my life totally. I am back in the old family home and have mom living with me due to her dementia. Life can change in a blink of an eye and we never see it coming. After a year and 1 1/2 months, almost 2, of being back, I finally am getting the house together where I want it and am thinking again about creating somehow. Need to bring my loom down and create space to work upstairs so the mess stays out of sight. :) Interesting how I spent so much time and energy planning and worrying about when "we would return to Michigan" after his retirement and we never got to that point. He died before. It makes me realize more than ever that long term goals may be good, but don't bother spending lots of energy worrying and planning because God may have other plans for your life and His plans over rule yours. I will try and post here off and on and get back into things. We will just have to see what happens on another day!!!
