Final Decision

What a great group of friends you are....I knew I could count on you to give me good advice and after much deliberation I have come to a decision and both Simon and I are happy.

I am very sorry to have to close down one of my blogs but as I explained yesterday keeping up two blogs just takes up too much time.  Now I feel like I can visit all of you more often and post more regularly on my one blog.  And please know that photography will be included in a big way in my posts....

I have decided to make Created for a Journey my primary blog.  I do hope that you will come over and visit and join me there.  I don't want to loose a single one of you as many of you have become very special friends.

I look forward to seeing you over at Created for a Journey......and for us sharing lots of photographs in the future....

I feel a load has been lifted and I have gained one more step in the art of simplification.

With big hugs and blessings,
Nancy

I need suggestions and ideas and I know you are the gals to help me.....
I have too much on my plate and I need to combine my two blogs....

I began Created for a Journey several years ago with the idea of sharing my daily life and endeavors.  I like to do lots of creative things and I thought it would be fun to meet like minded women.  Then the photography bug bit me and I thought how neat it would be to have a blog where I shared my photographs so I started The Gift of a Moment.  I have met incredible women on both blogs and I have been encouraged, challenged, and cried with many of you.

How do I start a new blog and not loose some of you who have become so special to me.  
It's scary to think of starting over again but I just don't have the time to keep up two blogs and do them justice and I can't choose one over the other.  I am trying very hard to simplify and to focus my energy where I am being directed so I really believe I need to head in the direction of one blog....

Maybe I just need a "kick in the pants" to get with it......or just encouragement that it will be OK and you all will not desert me...That would make me really sad...

Thank you so much for sharing any ideas that might come to you..

PLEASE HELP HER OUT, SHE IS DRIVING ME CRAZY.......SIMON


Hugs and blessings,
Nancy

Kids Keep Us Young

All last week, I had been wondering where I was going to get the energy to keep three grand kids for three full days.  I couldn't go to the store and buy any and I have been eating very healthy yet I was tired and just wanted to sit....You know that feeling?

Well, early Friday morning came and Sweet Fisherman and I headed out to pick up the sweet darlings and I knew they were going to be full of jet fuel (that means lots of energy)....Plus, rain was predicted for the entire weekend which only increases their levels of energy.  I immediately starting praying for a miracle and the ideas started flowing....Face Painting, T-shirt Painting, Board Games, Movie...Get out the paint and markers, Benadryl (OK just kidding)..but we were in business....You see my daughter has told her children that her parents had been activity directors on a cruise ship and they believed her so when they come to our house they expect the works...After all, aren't they the only grandchildren in the world....

To my surprise, those little darlings had us going and before we knew it Sweet Fisherman and I were acting like kids running and playing and painting faces like we were 12 years old again.  

So the moral to this story is If you need more energy invite some kids to come to your house and before you know it you have turned back the clock......Just don't do for any extended time because now that they are back home I have no energy and I just want to sit again...



The one with the green face really believes he is the hulk...don't mess with him......

Hugs and blessings,
Nancy
