Be Happy, Be Excited

I was thinking. I know.. uh ohh..
This morning when I was waking up I was thinking that is is good to start the day by thinking of something to be HAPPY about and something to be EXCITED about. It isn't always easy. I am happy to spend the day with my family. They are my joy. DH can always make me smile. He is the world's biggest dork when he wants to be, and can make me smile at the drop of a hat. My children make me proud each day with their good behavior, their good citizenship, and their intelligence. I don't know where they get that last one.
I am excited about quilting. This is a fairly new adventure to me, and it has not lost it's joy. I continue to stitch daily, and dream about more quilts daily. I wish that I had continued this adventure when I had started it my first try at quilting because of the joy. At that time my committment to family was much more demanding and I couldn't fit it in. Now is my adventure, and it is just so sweet.
The beautiful blogs I visit, (let's admit..daily), are a wonderful inspiration for quilts of the future. I couldn't dream of the future quilts without all that you so willingly share. Thank you for my continued excitement!
