Promises......

promises.....which shall I keep? I always think of promises like they are work orders for myself. Made to keep me on the path to get things done....but somewhere along the way I got lost...
I have decided to accept promises instead, I accept that my grandson is going to promise that he will love his new quilt whenever I make it....and if we need to stop and tickle toes, laugh and play silly games, we will!
I am ready to accept the promise that if my daughter wants to take pictures of me and my grandchildren I will let her......we seem to have several lifetimes of photos with me missing.....I can't expect my family to remember me if they haven't any pictures to look at....
More than ever I am ready to accept the promise of my husband loving me more and spending time together......
The road less travelled....that is what I promised myself I would travel, so this year I accept the promise of that road leading me to find just where my journey needs to go....
When I hear my Mother's whispers in my head and my heart feels empty, I will fill it up with promises to keep....... the promise of acceptance, self love and grace......
What promises are you willing to accept?

Beautiful post, Mags.

I accept the promise that I am worth loving and am loved by many. That I deserve that love and must lavish those I love with love in return.

I promise myself all the time to nurture a positive attitude no matter how bleak things become..."THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS".

I like your post of promises. I am promising myself to stay calm and enjoy the magic that each day holds. We really have so little time to truly be in the moment and fully live it all.
