Words as art-I love that trend.  As I was redecorating my little home office, I came across some scrapbook paper that looked great with my “inspiration piece”, the ratty to outragous chair.  After a trip to Wal-mart for some 12×12 frames, I had them framed and on the wall.

But they looked so alone there in the middle of the wall.  That’s when I decided to fill my space with words to live by-phrases, words, cards, plaques.  Little treasured thoughts that would act as affirmations through out the day-to remind me that God is good, there is joy in everyday life, that love and relationships are at the center of a happy life.

My office-and Romeo-my ever present companion loves the new chair.

Life is a blend of love and loss, but love is always stronger. My son is always clever in his card selections. This is a sympathy card that he converted to a Mother's Day card. Profound words when viewed from a mother's point of view.

"We do not remember days, we remember moments." I love this little plaque-it was a gift from Karen in 1974
