♪♪ It's the most wonderful time of the year ♪ Here we are again, after a half of year going on a fast roller-coaster, at least for me, going from wonderful things as becoming officially an american citizen to being told I might have Sjogren's Syndrome and now to found out I have some thyroid condition that affects my immune system, I can only thank the Lord that i am still here as my father in law will say :still kicking and yes,I am!! I can only count my blessings as having my Family together,my kids on great health ,my Mom in good healthand my brothers in Peru doing fine. Now I do stop and smell the flowers more often than before and try to make every moment I spend with my children a memory for them so when I am not around anymore they can remember me in the little things. life has changed,a lot but little by little I am coming to terms on what is becoming and I will do whatever it takes to keep me here a little longer. I have to admit I was scared to death of becoming gravely ill,especially because of my children, but I have accepted the fact that there is nothing under our control, never has been and never will be. Only thing we can control are our decisions to live every moment as the last one.I have learned to forgive and forget,there is nothing in this world that deserves our time wrongly spent. So here it is,to you and me, to Christmas and a wonderful Happy New Year 2015!! I hope you all enjoy your time with your family because I tell you no matter what,Family is the only thing that is important in life,nothing less or nothing more.... Have a great Holiday season!! Love Sara
yep, another year has gone by, the kiddos are out of school so our Summer has just started... it has been a year filled with a lot of learning,challenges and fun...we'll see what our future holds but so far we are just enjoying ourselves....I made some cards and dedicated my time mostly to my children,volunteering a lot at school, still working around in little projects and looking for a part time job, it isn't easy but we'll get there.. we were busy this year, I have learned how to make different designs of the Rainbow Loom bracelets and even rings!!! I did also a season of art class ,I'll post those pics later,it has been so far a half year filled with lots of fun!!! the first pic is my version of the mason jars painted with Modge Podge...made several and gave them to my art students, I did also had a Sunday school class,4th Grade we did several projects with them so they can remember the 10 Commandments...hopefully they will...but most important I have spent more and more time listening to my kids, not only giving instructions but listening more to their needs...and I am glad I have let it loose a little bit and started enjoying more this journey of Parenthood.I wish you all a nice Summer,too!!!!
I made these cards for my daughter's wonderful teachers at school,they all are really great and I feel like many times their work goes under recognized... sometimes it just takes a simple thank you to boost and to make others to feel appreciated...we are enjoying our summer...how about you??? are you planning on doing something,we are not this summer so we are just enjoying it as it comes!!! :)
My dear daughter started this year a wonderful program named Girls on the Run, they train the girls for a 5K Run at the end of the season but also teach them working in groups and self confidence...I did the 5K Run with her and we finished!!! to celebrate the end of the season we enjoyed some food and cupcakes....and of course I made the cupcakes and their toppers!!! :)
