Pay it forward...

So, here's how this game works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (or be lazy and copy and paste like I did). Then come back, let me know you're going to play and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Well isn't this fun?PS-I'm not terribly skilled...but I am a good baker... we will see!

Not going to be around much...

Hey everyone,

I am tired of spending so much time on the computer reading blogs everyday, so I have decided to stop. I may post here every once in a while (not that I posted very much to begin with). I would love to keep in touch with you over email, so if I don't have your email address (or you are not sure if I do), please email it to me: amberf22 at gmail dot com.

I am also deleting my facebook account, so if we see eachother there... well, we won't anymore. So please leave your email address!

The Time to be Kind

This poem was handed out at Dennis Barney's funeral. I am not sure who wrote it, but it is my new favorite...

The time to be kind is now
The place to be kind is here
We needn't be told the way to be kind
For the way to be kind is clear
But it's good to pause and remember
In the heat of our stress and drive
The very best time to live
Is while we are still alive.
The time to be happy is now
The place to be happy is here
The way to be happy is to make others happy
Simple enough, I fear
But the simple things we are apt to miss
As we struggle and fret and strive
Forgetting the very best time to live
Is while we are still alive."
