Slowly - that's the mantra I keep repeating to myself.

I am working hard at keeping a slower pace these days.  Working at letting things go.  Working at being reasonable with my expectations.  Working at looking at what I have done instead of what's left to do.

I have to work at remembering that life is about moments; when I stay so busy and focused on the "To Do" list I miss those moments.   I am such a Martha.

Not Casey - he's a Mary.  He's always aware of the fun and joy of life and he's right in the middle of it most times.  I am learning to follow his lead.

Dishes and chores will wait.

This won't:



Remember to take things slowly this week.  It is NOT easy in a world that wants everything to be RIGHT NOW, but your life is worth it. YOU are worth it, so am I!

I'll keep you posted!

For Clarification

Thank You so much for the positive responses to Riley's Hats!  Your generosity is overwhelming and much appreciated.

For Clarification:

Knit OR Crochet is just fine

Made for girls OR boys

DEFINE "SOFT" - If you'd put it on a baby - that's soft enough.  I am using lots of Michael's & Hobby Lobby brand chunky acrylics as they are soft, washable, and insanely bright colors that I think the kids will like.  Just be sure and test it under your chin (for softness) as not all acrylics/yarns are created equally.

Deadline:  Please have the hats to me by 12/15/2011

If you have any further questions please leave them in the comments - I'll get back to you I promise (sometimes it just takes me a bit).

I'll keep you posted!
