Living Life...

I saw this earlier today..
It has stuck in my mind as I busily clean my house on this dark dreary  damp second day in January 2013..
On a daily basis, I try pretty much to practice each and every one of the points listed.
Each of you know how much I miss my Grands back in Colorado.
Last evening, through the magic of technology, we shortened the distance!
Through Skype, we were thrilled to actually see and hear Brax and his parents from the comfort of our respective homes so many miles apart!.

How thrilling to watch our little guy "sing" twinkle, twinkle little star, show us his nose..
(promptly inserting finger into nostril)

..showed  us his front bottom teeth and stuck out his tongue!
When prompted, he could show  us his ears, eyes and even his bare toes!!
Hearing  him giggle,,delightful!
He also said Mama, Dada , bye bye!
When he spied  BeBe jump up onto my shoulder..he shrieked with delight..Kitty!! while pointing to the screen!

To hear his sweet baby voice trying to say Gamma was the most awesome music to our ears..
As we chatted, discussing all sorts of news and views plans for the future, the fact that technology is evolving so fast is mind boggling..
and as fast as time is flying..I say...
whoa....slow down..let me savor the moment each. and every. day..
let me live life..
and be a blessing in all that I do
so...altho the day is gray and damp..
I am warm and toasty savoring the sweet memory of Brax last night..

blowing kisses..
knowing he is just a click away..
and for that, I am ever so grateful!

For the year 2013, Live Life will be my Mantra!
Have you decided on a mantra or a word for the year?

Come join the fun with my friends at:

  1. We look forward so much to seeing our granddaughter on FaceTime, and she's only 5 1/2 months! I know it will be even more of a blessing as she grows older. I love each suggestion on your list and your goal to Live Life in 2013. Such a gift we have, just being alive.

  2. What a beautiful little boy. I know your heart aches to hold him but Skype helps in some degree.


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
