it's that simple

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less

i hope

I hope someday my children do this for me. I read this in Readers Digest and thought it was great

I received very sad news that another person i know has lost his battle with cancer. Nine months after a diagnosis of brain cancer the Weber family has lost somone. My dear friend Guido lost his older brother Achim on April 17th. I love that family so very much and the news was like someone knocked the wind out of me.

I am sick to my stomach, what a wonderful, smart and caring soul. He leaves behind his children and his wife, parents, brothers and numerous family members. How and why are the questions that keep going through my mind. Children are not suppose to go before their parents especially at the age of 50.

Guido and his family will have the unbearable task of burying their loved one this week. I wish there was more that i could do for them. I will keep them close in my heart and pray.

I keep going back to Achim's website and looking at his picture. I know this is not how he looked when he passed because of the cancer but this is the way i want to remember him. Healthy, full of life and brilliant. Rest in peace

sleep masks

I need to make a few for our germany trip

doggie jackets

I think they turned out cute

I just need to shorten up the wiener dog pattern a little and make the bischon jacket a little longer.
