Thursdays Thoughts

Is there a difference between taking it easy...and being lazy? Please tell me there isn't. I'm really enjoying my "taking it easy routine". Oh, it's not like I do nothing...but today for instance, I didn't get out of my pj's (I just re-named them loungewear around noon) and I sat in my dining room with my friend Cathy while we made Valentine cards until around 5:30 tonight. We've decided we can't do this for a living because we would have to charge 25 dollars per card to break even.

My mom had a follow up appointment yesterday and the doctor is going to go back in and do another procedure on March 4th. We're hoping they can remove the rest of the gallstones and figure out what else might be going on in there.

Last night was a big Relay for Life meeting and although the team of committee members have been working diligently for the past 4 months, last night was my motivation to get started. I have so much info in my head from all the events I've been to in the past few months, I need to start sharing. It's no good to be the "keeper of the knowledge" if you're not going to share with others. With the economy struggling like it is this year, we are going to have to get creative to raise money for the charitys that are close to our hearts. Though you hear me talk about the ACS a lot, my love is really for the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. I am so moved when I read her website and see another amazing thing she has done for research, awareness and treatment. I say this often, and I really mean it...she has changed my life :)

Tomorrow is my daughter in law's 24th birthday. Happy Birthday Meg! We'll be celebrating on Saturday at our friends Rodger and Jan's 25th wedding anniversary.

While making cards today, I came across a new saying that I loved and I think you will too...

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

I've added a photo of Rick and I from the wedding. He has hair and mine looked cute so I thought I'd share it with you.

Dreaming Big,

Doreen, I saw this in the "Mutts" comic this morning and had to share it with you:

but to one person you may be the world."
