Enjoy Every Moment

Words to live by. Sometimes we get so caught up in our busy lives that we are always looking ahead to the next thing. It's a good reminder to slow down, relax, and enjoy the moment you are in. I have to remind myself of this. With three kids all running in different directions, a busy stamping business, a husband, house, and a large family of siblings, nieces, nephews, etc. to keep up with life can get a little crazy. Lately, I've been trying to not let it all go by without enjoying it. My kids are growing up. They are now 14, 10 and 8. I'm trying to enjoy the age they are now.

Gosh, who knew a card could get me gushing all philosophical on ya, huh? Here are the details of this card.

Ink: Rose Red, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie

Wow, Kathleen, you're reading my mind. I have two girls, 10 and 12, and they're always so busy with before-school and after-school activities, and homework, and projects, etc. They both just signed up for a week of summer volleyball through the school, and I'm finding it hard to believe that I'm writing things on my calendar for JUNE! Time does pass by so quickly, and it is very important to slow down every once in a while!

Now I'll be silly and quote the very wise Ferris Bueler and say, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it."

I love your card very much! Fantastic color combination!!

Wonderful card Kathleen, and you are right, we ALL need to slow down, I think! It's okay to be gushy - we all do it *wink* Mine are 19, 13, and 11 - I can't believe I already have one in college, seems like yesterday he was sitting in my lap! It goes by way to fast!!!

Hi Kathleen! The color of your card is fabulous! It's so bright and happy. I recently bought this set and your card reminds me that I need to ink. Thank you for sharing such a lovely creation!!

My philosophy of life is to ENJOY, most definitely. If it stops being fun. . .one must move on to something else. LOL! You're right, kids grow up quickly. . .before you know it, they're on their own. Enjoy your time with them!!
