I just want to say thanks

I just want to say thanks for all my followers who are hanging in with me and being understanding when I hit a bump in the road. I feel so blessed. This week has been very challenging. Challenges my faith, my trust, my integrity, my health. I need all the prayers in the world at this time and ironically Easter weekend is here.

I hope each and every one of you have a Happy Easter. I still plan to get together charts for a giveaway but life unexpectedly intervened in a way that is hard to deal with and I had to focus attention to other matters unfortunately. My stitching rut I've got into this past week is inexcusable and I hope is not dissapointing. I will-----and I have a strong will----get past this and get back my creative spirit. Right now I'm focusing on my physical health from all the stress. Just to get basics like eating and sleeping again and finding things I forgot that lift me up in times like these to keep positive energy flowing so that no matter what life brings, I'm ready. God already knows the plans for us anyway. I trust He will be there and I will be able to filter the garble and find what his will is. I learned a lesson. I've put too much energy into one basket and the basket didn't appreciate it at all.

I probably will not be writing too much on the blog this weekend so I wanted to say thanks, I haven't forgotten what this blog is about, the beautiful people all over the world that connect with me in my passion for color, stitching, etc.

As I've said before, life is a journey. And sometimes we journey alone. And sometimes it's actually good to unclutter the mind to get over the hump in the road. Fall 8 times and get up 9.

I hope you have a the most blessed Easter this weekend.

 Easter is a time of hope for me. Hope that there is one person in the world who will never tell us he doesn't have time for us, never shun us away, never be ashamed of us, never stop loving us.

That's what I'm holding on to this Easter. Hope. Laughter. Adventure. And regrouping.

Happy Easter!

I hope you have at least one person who will share it with you and make it special.

I love all of ya'll.

Till later,


  1. Happy Easter Jennifer! It is to you I wish to say thanks.... I have enjoyed following your blog, sharing your adventures, both high and low and seeing your creative mojo blossoming.

    I would just like to add (without sounding too preachy) that this is a very special time of year, a time to reflect on the amount of love that God and His Son have for us. It is amazing to think that for us he died and freely gave up his life so that we could be resurrected and have the chance to live with them once again. It is hard to comprehend that sort of love, but it helps me keep going when people (daughter) are unkind to me, and I start to feel low. I remember that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father and my brother, Jesus Christ and that lifts me up. Please remember you are loved very much.

    I understand about life's ups and downs, we all do. So you rest up and take care of yourself,BG, and those sweet fur babies of yours.

    Till later,
    Carol E.

  5. Jennifer I hope you are feeling better and you have a wonderful Easter. I on the other hand will stay home. I had some plastic surgery for some basal cell on my face and arm. My face is so swollen it is unbelievable. Painful, I hate the sun...I always used sunblock but I am being told this happened when I was a kid. The plastic surgeon said once you get them more is to come. Yipee something to look forward to. I wanted to tell you I got my bag and love it. Take care. Pat

  6. We all have our down time's and lose our stitching mojo now and then.

    Just take things one day at a time and know we are here and we are thinking of you.

    Hope you have a great Easter! Hope we both find that stitching mojo and get to work.

  7. Sorry to hear you are going through a rough patch right now. Sending thoughts and prayers your way. ((HUGS))

  8. Jennifer,

    I know I'm not a prolific commenter, but I absolutely love to read your blog. There are many times when reading your words either bring me peace, inspiration, joy or a new perspective when needed.

    I'm sorry this has been such a challenging week for you and hope that over the Easter weekend you are able to find your peace again.

  9. A friend said she imagines her ears as drains and opens one up from time to time to let out the old unused stuff, making room for the new. Happy Easter to you too, wishing you peace and serenity in the coming days.

  10. Jennifer - I wish you peace and comfort and a Blessed Easter.

  11. Have a great Easter - take time to rest, rejuvenate, and replenish yourself. I am praying for your health needs.

  12. Hi Jennifer, I'm sorry life is difficult at the moment. Luckily, your Faith helps you a great deal. My I, as a Pagan, wish you all the goodness the world has to give? We may not have exactly the same beliefs, but I hope we are both kind and gentle people, though different. Blessings

  13. Dear Jennifer,

    May God continue to hold you in the palm of His hand. I pray that you will feel Him near you throughout this difficult time and that joy will return soon. God brings people into our lives when we need them and He has used you to bring joy and inspiration to many of us. Thank you for all you do, and for allowing us to share the journey with you. I hope you have a restful weekend, and that you are able to spend it with people that love you ( and little Abbie too) and please know that you are not alone, there are many of us who are praying for you and your family and who care....alot....Happy Easter, Love, Jenny
