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.

  1. Hi Elizabeth~
    It's so easy to fall behind when life gets a bit crazy...everything will get back to order soon...I'm sure of it! So glad we met here in Blogland...Have An AWESOME Day!

  2. oh i hope you are enjoying your visit! we'll still be here when you get back.

  3. New grandmothers are very busy adoring their new babies. We all understand.

  4. I just found you through " A journey to our daughter" and think your blog is lovely. I am a "retired" event planner ( I am now raising my two little girls.) But looking at your site brought back some wonderful memories. It is such a joy to help others create one of the most memorable events of their lives.
    I wish you continued success with your venture.
    Congratulations to you also for the birth of your darling grandbaby. She is darling!

  5. Congratulation to you and take care of the little kitty!

  6. Thanks for your sweet comments. I completely understand what you mean about life passing you by. I started blogging with the best intentions and somehow life happened! I still love your blog and am glad to have you as a "friend!" Enjoy that new grandbaby! I can not believe how quickly they grow up. Crimson will be 10 in May. I will probably be crying while she's celebrating, if you know what I mean?!?!

  7. Dear Grandmomma, Your latest blog decor is so beautiful! You are really getting into this blogging thing, aren't you? It seems like only yesterday that you were asking for help, and now you appear as a seasoned professional. The pink and green looks so good!

  8. So glad you had that time with your family and that precious new granddaughter! :-)


    Sheila... whose middle name is Elizabeth, too! :-)

  9. Hello there, nice to meet you! I found you by way of Miss Janice.

    Congrats on the new precious bundle. They are so fun, aren't they...grandchildren that is.

    I hope you'll stop by and see me when you get caught up.

  10. I love your blog. Caroline Elizabeth is just precious! Lovely name for a lovely angel!!! :D Jewel
