What Keeps You Going?

"Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply,
to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed."

What keeps you going? For me, first and foremost, it is Little Chick, family and living life! When I hear her sweet voice in the morning my heart just melts! She keeps me going in a way that I have never known. I have always been a go-getter and one to set goals with a determination to accomplish them. However, at this point in my life my goals are wrapped around providing the best home and life possible for Little Chick.

The other day I bumped into an old friend of mine. It was like seeing my “first love” after all these years. My heart raced and my face carried a smile plastered from ear to ear. That friend was my good old faithful poetry and quotation books. Yes, BOOKS. They had been settled at my mom’s house for the past four years or so, because we moved a few times. I wanted to keep them safe at moms. I had been missing them, because all of my life I referred to them with such a passion and devotion. They were there for me through the good times and the bad! They always kept me going!

So, now that we have purchased our home and should be staying a while I was ready to go and fetch my old pals. I have to say that it is you, my bloggy friends, that made me realize that there was a yearning for my fine references. They have always inspired me and I want to pass that inspiration on to you and Little Chick.

Little Chick is what keeps me going!

  8. Hi there,

    Thanks for popping by and for following. (I'm following you now too.)

    I just prowsed a bit on your blog - I love it. You feel like a kindred spirit to me. And what a sweet daughter you have. The feelings you describe remind me of how I felt about my first daughter. I was sooooohappy be become her mother.

    We're just finishing up a big renovation and today I started unpacking my BOOKS. I dusted each one (well, the ones I did so far) and hugged them as I found their new home in our new cabinets.

    Looking forward to more visits.
