Take time to smell the flowers

Yesterday I was walking down a craft aisle in a store and broke down crying because I saw a potters wheel. My sister passed away unexpectedly in May of this year, she was only 44 years old. She loved working with clay and was quite gifted even though she didn't think so. She always wanted to take a class on throwing clay on a wheel. She never found the time to do it.
Life is short. Please take the time to take the class, go on the trip, live your life to the fullest and enjoy it while you can.

  3. I firmly believe if there is something you want to do, you should find the way to do it. I have had some regrets over the years for not doing things I wanted to do.

    Blessings to you dear Star.

  4. It is so important to enjoy every moment and take in every experience that you can. It is hard to do, some days, but it is important to take time for yourself and do something you enjoy.

    Big hugs for the post and reminder to Carpe Diem.

  5. You are absolutely correct...I need to talk to hubs about getting me a passport (taking a trip to Canada is close enough to be probably inexpensive but far enough away to be "exotic")

  9. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. 44 is way too young. This certainly is a reminder to get out there and do things we want to do. ~Val
