"IF I FALL ASLEEP...."

One of the most meaningful Christmas gifts I got this year came from Kendra, my daughter! You've all heard of 'wall art'. Sometimes it comes in the form of actual art, and sometimes, words and/or phrases. Well, she found the PERFECT phrase to match her mom's heart and passion! One of my dearest, darlingest friends, the girl in the red shirt, made the sign (vinyl letters on stick-on paper) for Kendra, and then she and my adorable niece came to put it up in my office today. Here's a glimpse of the process. (You will see that Cecil had to get his hand in there as well.)

Happy New Year dear Shar!! Oh, that verse on your wall is great, and so appropriate for an author. Your office looks nice too! ~ Hope you're doing well (I'm reading this blog because I've been having difficulty trying to use my ShoutLife site!). ~ Sending hugs from Georgia, Patti Jo :)

I love the saying that Kendra picked out. She did a great job! I know she was really excited for you to have it! Looks beautiful in your office.

May God bring you many blessings during this new year!

Hi Shar,

We're doing okay. I know the prayers are helping us through. I thank God for our friends and family.

My mom's email address is jrosema@oaisd.org.

Love you!

Sharlene - I absolutely love your "If I die with a pen in my hand...!" What a great idea - and gift to you. I can tell you are a great mom and grandmom (or is it nana? like I am) Aren't those precious blessings the Lord has given to our lives. Write on - and may God continue to inspire you for His glory and praise - and to help others along to Him as well! Blessings! Jane Aldrich (another southern sister!)

CF from shoutlife. Well, not on there anymore, but I thought you'd know who it is if I mentioned that. :D

The photo makes me want to hurry up and learn writing and setup a nice office like yours and work away. :)

I would sure want to write and maybe do it for a living. Or for extra cash on the side.

I love, love, love this post and I am inspired to creat a little wall art of my own.

I'm a bit slow on the draw in replying to everyone. Can I say it's because it was the holiday season. No? Okay, then, no good reason.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by with your comments. I did have to giggle a little bit at what Jane wrote. The saying isn't "If I DIE with a pen in my hand, ..." Look again, Jane. Actually, if I die with a pen in my hand, go ahead and remove it 'cause they'll be saying, "Well, folks, that's all she wrote."

M2P, yes, yes, yes, you MUST do some wall art. Actually, I just had my friend and niece come a couple of weeks ago and install another sentence on my wall by my front entrance. It says, "How beautiful a day can be when friends walk into it."

Hugs...
