I know I know it has been a couple of days, always lots happening in the Brewin household, & at the moment am doing it solo. Lots of time for scrapping supposedly.....LOL
Here is a LO I did for our November competition over at Heaven-Sent. Very simple & I tried an 8.5x11. I like this size it is quick & easy.
Today I thought alot about the holiday season & decided that I have a fairytale complex!! (plus I want to do too many things before christmas LOL). I think deep down I want everything to be like cinderella. I think deep down I have always had this thing of having a huge family that got on!!! Fancy that. Big dinners with lots of food, music, laughter, children, a marriage that lasts 50 or more years & you still dig each other?? ........not one person trying to get attention, no-one cranky or peeved at someone, worrying about little insignificant things that really have the care factor of a 0, lots of love & no criticism!!! So I decided that I am going to build what I always wanted with my 3 girls. I want them to come home for dinner every week-end even when they are 30 with their own kids, I want them to ring me & tell me exciting news, I want them to not necessarily think we are cool, but want to spend time with us as they love communicating & having relationship with us, I want them to want to do coffee with Dad & shopping with Mum, I want them to ask us what we think but not necessarily care what our answer would be, but that they value our opinion. Do you think I am dreaming?? In this world of technology & cyber communication, can real relationships, no holds barred truly exist??? I believe that you train a child up in the way they should go & they will not depart from it. I pray that my girls will not only come to know Jesus but that they will be beautiful human beings that want to help & care for other people. I know that we won't be perfect but I hope that I can at least pass on some of the things that my Dad & Mum taught me!!! There is nothing like FAMILY, however dysfunctional!!
Just some ramblings of a mama. Not much else going on here except trying to get some work & christmas stuff done.
Hope you have a great thursday.
