Jane and a Humblebead

Jewery Design by Jane Langan I love to see what others create using Humblebeads. At our last Bead Society meeting Jane brought her beautiful creation to show me. It is delightful to see Jane expanding and trying new things with Art Beads. Humblebeads is taking a break and savoring the last few days of vacation with her family and friends. You can still purchase humblesbeads through Bello Modo. Friday Jane and I got to spend some girl time together. We went to CafeWhat for lunch. I treasure those special times with friends. I had a three cheese sandwhich with tomatoe and bacon. Jane had a shrimp bisque and 1/2 sandwhich. Here are some links to keep you entertained until my next post. I have been working re-designing my website. My next step is clean up my files on my webhost and putting up an updated web site. Fabfibers: Icing on the Cake. Making resin pendants with Heather and Melanie with Rosanne. Sweetbeadstudio: Had a give away. Check out the lucky winner Backyard Beads. That is about it for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Just a Sprinkle

The weather was calm by Lake Ponchatrain. Looking towards the Mississippi River we watched the storm roll in. Can you see the rain wall? The worse of the storm just missed us. All we got was a few sprinkles.

If I knew it would be the last time That I'd see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming you would KNOW I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, Well I'm sure you'll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away. For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right. There will always be another day to say "I love you," And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do?" But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day, That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear Take time to say "I'm sorry," "Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay." And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today
