Time Flies

In doing the 2 Peas Blog challenge today, and in writing about Emily's Graduation the other day I have been thinking so much about time this past weekend. I can't believe how sometimes time seems to just fly by. I remember holding Amber and Emily as newborn babies and thinking that they would be my little babies forever. Now here they are completing Kindergarten and Grade 2. When I look at them now there is no more baby look to them, they look like little girls now. They are looking and definitely acting so grown up. Almost daily now one of them says something that hits me that they are no longer babies. I just can;t believe how fast these past 7 years have flown, seems like yesterday when they were born. I don't know how ready I am to have 2 very grown up mature little girls. It almost frightens me a little bit that I might not be able to handle what is to come next. What if I don't teach them the things they will need to become strong, independent girls with values and morals. What if I miss something? I guess all I can hope for is that as this time seems to fly by that God gives me what I need to teach them what's right, that He prepares me to handle what may come. In the mean time... I'm gonna be running after that time to see if I can slow it down, just a little bit.

How Is Your Inner Child

Your Inner Child Is Sad

You're a very sensitive soul.
You haven't grown that thick skin that most adults have.
Easily hurt, you tend to retreat to your comfort zone.
You don't let many people in - unless you've trusted them for a long time.

What one life moment changed your life forever?
Blog about it.
Happy or sad.
Good or bad.

I think the moment that changed my life the absolute most was the births of my girls. When my first daughter was born and I held her for the very first time everything about me and everything about my life changed in the first second she was in my arms. I had never knows that I could have such an instant love for someone. An instant need to protect, shelter, nurture and love. I instantly went from my world being about me to my world being about this little girl in my arms. When my second daughter was born I felt all the same feelings all over agin. I had been nervous that there might not be enough love inside of me to take care of two girls equally, but when I held her I knew that I had more than enough love inside for both. Having my girls has made my life so much better than I had ever imagined it could be. I am the luckiest mom in the world and I thank God everyday for giving me my two beautiful girls and for changing my life in the most amazing way possible.

My Baby Graduated From Kindergarten

My baby graduated from Kindergarten yesterday. It was amazing watching the graduation ceremony. I was so proud of her and had so much fun. It was a little bit sad for me though. My baby is growing up - too fast!! It really hit me that now she really is a little girl. Both my girls will now be in school full-time. I was excited for her, and proud of her, but still sad at the same time. Hopefully this sad feeling will pass soon.

My Favorite Things Saturday - 23/06/07

2 Peas Sunday Blogger Challenge

Join us today/Sunday if you blog. Challenge: What other creative talents do you possess, besides papercrafting? Share your passions. Blog about it.. what else are you good at?

I have a couple of crafting passions besides scrapbooking. It is funny though that they come in spurts. I'll get on a kick to complete 1 project, then I'll move onto something different. Scrapbooking is the only passion I constantly stick with. I also do counted cross stitch and knit. Right now I am making this 4 season wreath. I tend to do other crafts for relaxation, to de-stress or unwind.

Letter to my Youngerself - Layout

What Temperment Are You?

You Have a Phlegmatic Temperament

Mild mannered and laid back, you take life at a slow pace.
You are very consistent - both in emotions and actions.
You tend to absorb set backs easily. You are cool and collected.

It is difficult to offend you. You can remain composed and unemotional.
You are a great friend and lover. You don't demand much of others.
While you are quiet, you have a subtle wit that your friends know well.

At your worst, you are lazy and unwilling to work at anything.
You often get stuck in a rut, without aspirations or dreams.
You can get too dependent on others, setting yourself up for abandonment.

If you could write a letter to your younger self, knowing what you've learned in life already, what would that letter say?

Blog about it.

Here is the letter I would write to my younger self:

Dear Sandy,

As I have grown there is so much I would have liked to know when I was younger - things that have made a huge impact on my life that I would like to share with you.Firstly, know how strong and powerful you are. Everything you have to succeed and achieve what you want for your life is already inside of you - reach down inside and grab hold of that. It is there and the power is yours!! Secondly, don't focus on what others think of you. You are an amazing woman! What truly matters is what you think of yourself and of your actions - always BE YOURSELF!! And lastly, know how important your family and friends are to you - embrace that instead of pushing those you love away. They will be there to support you if you let them.

Love Me at 30.
