Thank You, Grazie, Danke, Gracias, Merci!!!
Intentions are a good thing if you follow through with them, but meaningless if you don't. I know many times I have had good intentions, but got caught up in the trap that it has to be perfect or I have to do more and end up waiting to try and accomplish perfect or get or do more and then find out by waiting I've missed an opportunity by not acting in a timely fashion. Maybe you too have missed opportunities to say or do something to show thanks, encouragement, support, love or just to let someone know you are thinking of them. So, I'm trying to overcome my tendency toward "perfection" and as Nike says, just do it!
As most of you know I have been away visiting my daughter and precious new granddaughter, Caroline Elizabeth. For obvious reasons I didn't do much blogging while I was away. I was able to find a few minutes daily to check and see who had been by to visit and read my comments. I have been trying with the very best of intentions to reply back to everyone that was kind enough to visit and leave a comment while I was aways, but alas I feel I'm not making a lot of progress as I am also trying to catch up at home and with my business. I found this quote and adorable picture in my new 2009 Calendar by Mary Englebreit and thought it was good food for thought as well as perfect for my post today.

So, my post today is to all of my blogging friends and visitors. A great big Thank You! to everyone who visited and left such sweet comments. I want you to know how very much it was appreciated. To those of you who stopped by for the first time, please visit again, I would love to get to know you and to those of you who stop by regularly, please bear with me as I get back on track. I'm looking forward to catching up and seeing what you have been up to while I've been away and borrowing many of your creative ideas.
