I wish for....infallibility

I do . I mean maybe it comes form the fact that my name means perfection or whatever but I can't stand to make mistakes. They can be very small ones such as forgetting to put the milk away to very large ones that keep me awake at night. We will make them. Can't avoid it I suppose. Especially as a parent I think that we notice our mistakes more prominently than if they just involved us. I made so many mistakes but when I make mistakes that hurt the peopel I love, ..well...then that 's the kicker. A part of me wants to cower in a corner all day weeping over the way I should have handled things (and let me tell you I have tried it) . Another part wonders if my family would be left better off without me around to drive them crazy while I checked in on them, periodically. My husband so clearly states when I go through one of these moods that that is not the best course of action. We must face our mistakes head on. I know. I really do but a part of me still wants to run away no matter what the problem or the mistake.
Yet, here I am. ..typing ...typing....ranting and rambling a bit trying to figure it all out. I wish I could be an infalliable parent in so many ways, but then if I was I guess....I wouldn't be me.

Thanks as alwasy for reading! Remmeber, if you leave a comment you are entered for a chance to win a piece of art ( see wall art below). Drawing is tomorrow!!!!

The Way We Were....

I was given a bag full of photos to look at the other day from my father who is currently cleaning out and passing on items in his possession. I opened the bag and poured through what must have been over 100 photos, many of which I had in triples already in my house ( particularly wedding ones). As my eyes rested on some more than others I began to think of the past. I saw people who were married who no longer were, people who were once healthy who are now ill or have passed on. I saw images of myself and recalled the feelings of the past with events I remembered fondly as well as the ones where I have made mistakes and in which mistakes were made to me. The past is truly in the past as they say because these events can not be undone. As my husband always says to me: Learn from it and move on. While moving on for some may be easy, I find it to be one of the most difficult things to have to do. Still, living in the moment one moment at a time is an honorable goal and hopefully one I can achieve someday. Wishing you all the best in your moments always and thank you to everyone who replies to my ramblings. It makes my day! Stay tuned because tomorrow will be the start of a new drawing for a piece of art!!!

Celebrating Earth Day

New Earth Day Digital Art

I know I know a bit early but for once I would like to get a jump on things:) Tomorrow is Earth Day as I am sure you all know. Everyone makes a big deal of it: sharing ideas on being green, helping save the world, etc. Why just one day? Why not everyday?

There are so many things we can do to celebrate Earth Day without pulling out the picket signs ( although picket signs made from recycled paper is also good). Just admiring the beauty that surrounds us ona daily basis in the form of trees, flowers, out children...that is all a part of Earth Day. Living day to day in a world of uncertainties can be frightening for everyone but taking a minute here or a minute there to relax an smell the roses ( LOL) can help us find out inner Earth Day more than just one day a year. Enjoy all and feel free to comment!!!! I love each and every one!!
