I hope I dance...

I am a student in an art quilt class with my teacher and friend Jane LaFazio. Our assignment for this month was an affirmation, resolution or wish for our new 2009 year. I always make a goal list at the beginning of each year but an affirmation was challenging. With so much stress in our lives including my own I chose to affirm faith and trust. There is a song by Lee Ann Womack called "I hope you dance". There are a couple of lines in her song that I will focus on this year." I hope you never lose your sense of wonder.......and when you have the choice to sit it out or dance... I hope you dance. I hope we all dance this year... through all the ups and downs, the tears and fears the financial plunges and the job losses. We can all be optomistic ..Dance!!
I came home from class tonight and took apart this quilt in progress.  I like the elements but it just didn't flow so I cut it apart and put the pieces back in a different arrangement.  Sometimes things just work out wrong the first time.  Look for the finished piece in a few days

The words are brilliant in that song.

I'm with you and Marjorie. Just bought tickets to an Abba disco and singalong. Haven't told my husband yet he likes Abba but hates dancing! How did I ever get to marry a non dancer?

After watching the movie (Mamma Mia) I am a ABBA fan all over again, I love their music. Winifred, I hope you have fun at the Disco/Singalong. Lucky you!
