Inspirational Message

"I love my body! I appreciate my age and I welcome my birthdays. I am aging with grace and ease and I am thankful for every day that I have." -- Daily Whisper Inspirational Cards

Recently my dear friend passed away at the age of 59 and it was a tragedy.  I think of her when I complain about the silly things I don't like with my body and the visible signs of aging. I remember the alternative of living and aging is death and I don't want to go there. So everyday I am thankful for my body, my birthdays and my moments. Life is a journey and I want to live it for a long while!

I love what I do

Every day I make these darling little guys. I carefully sew them with a pattern I designed, I stuff their little bodies then add the face and embellishment pieces. While I am sewing the faces on a personality emerges and  I can't help but smile. Each one has its own personality and is one of a kind. It makes me very happy to know that soon a child or teenager will take one home, cherry picked as their favorite. These are a few I finished recently.
I sell my Cuddle Wumkins on my Etsy site. You won't find these guys listed. They are part of a group that will be sold at my booths in upcoming craft fairs.

Inspirational Message

"People are important to me and I am important to myself. I keep only my friends who bring me joy and add value to my life. All others I let go." -- Daily Whisper Inspirational Cards

We need people in our life to help us through the good and bad times. Sometimes we have people in our life who aren't good for us. You know the type. They criticize, complain, constantly see the worst in life and they drag us down. One meeting with them and we feel exhausted.

Picture this. When we have a pleasant conversation with a friend the words we speak are flowing back and forth from person to person. It feels good, and we can effortlessly stay charged with energy. When we are speaking with someone who is negative, disturbed, disruptive, angry, etc. the energy is different. The angry words have the ability to suck the energy away from the person they are talking to like a vacuum. That is why we feel exhausted when we leave a conversation with a person who has negative energy.

Years ago I made the decision to let go of the people who did not bring me joy or add value to my life. It wasn't easy to do but once I acclimated to the change my life was happier. Now my life is focused on positive energy and healthy conversations. There are always times when a temper flairs but that is part of life. I know when that happens is was the effect of something and not the nature of the personality.

Inspirational Message

"Step by step I am working towards my goals and dreams. I am staying focused as my faith is being tested along the way." --Daily Whisper Inspirational Cards

This Inspirational message is for those of us who are having a frustrating time reaching our goals. We have the best intentions but sometimes life gets in the way. Let's call these speed bumps on the road to success. All along the path towards our goals and dreams we are being tested to see how badly we want to get there. We hit a road block, we push through it, and then all of a sudden many things fall into place.
