Being on Same Page

To all my WP friends, this is a short post just to inform you of the truth of the matter, relating to my life.

First of all, I am not able to G-Talk, Face Talk, email talk, or any other talk on a one-to-one basis. I am working two full time jobs right now, my day beginning around 7am and not ending until about 11pm. I am not able to fit into my day individual conversations. I do that a lot on blogs I follow, and my standard has been and will be again, those who do come here to visit Petals Unfolding, I try my best to go to your blogs to enjoy what you bring to the blogger world.

If you read my “About” Page and “My Life” Page, you will understand. The work I put into my blog and all the work I put in behind the scenes is more hours then I think any of you know. I take care of 14 special beautiful cats as well, and it doesn’t stop there. I also feed and love outdoor wild cats/birds, animals who all come here to our property (Our Sacred Space) for food, healing, and LOVE.

I manage and run a household which includes being married to a Vietnam Vet. Yes, a “special” man. I have huge gardens that I maintain myself in order to bring to you my glorious flowers. And then there is me. I must take care of me, by making time to go to the gym to workout, and to have “private quiet times” for myself. This is a must in order for me to both maintain my health and my sanity. (smile)

I do not mean any disrespect of any kind to anyone who has contacted me. This is why I am writing what I am, now, so that you understand. I am really touched that you have contacted me to have conversations with me. All those who know me, know I LOVE to talk, but my GOAL takes priority in my life, which is, bringing LOVE, TRUTH, BEAUTY, and LIGHT into this world.

I LOVE each and every one of you. In closing, I am going through a huge adjustment period in regards to my blog, so if you do not see me as you usually do at your blogs, please just have patience with me until I get “settled”. May all of you know LOVE this day, and may PEACE walk by your side. In LOVE, Amy

*I do my best in all I do, and that is all anyone can ask of me, including myself.*

      2. I know I am not alone, Father, for I “see” what you do as well. I have what I call my Inner Garden and that is where I meet with God and I rest in Him. I have to. The quiet times are a must for me to keep going. As well you know. (smile) Love, Amy

    1. OH, Susan, you know I LOVE you. I treasure the relationship that has sprung up between us. And then there is that Professor. Tee Hee. He is at his shinanigans again today. *eye ball roll* What are we to do with that man? LOL xx Amy

      I thank you for that quote. YOU know what I am doing and you KNOW just how full my life is. This is one reason why I enjoy SO much talking to you and the Professor and a few others here. Not many, because I just cannot do it. (((HUGS))) and hoping you have many laughs today. Watch out for the Professor. He is lurking about. I can FEEL him. LOL

    1. Thank you, Barbara. I’ve learned to do well and be very attentive to what I do. This blogging has been a huge adjustment in my life, and still is. I’ve just gone up another notch in the challenge area, but once I get used to that, all will flow nicely again. Bless you for being a part of Petals. Love, Amy

  4. So what do ya do in your spare time gal? πŸ™‚

    All sounds very familiar to me, albeit different things packing the same hours, 7 days a week. But as for blogging, nobody’s business but your own. I blog mainly very late at night and schedule 50+%; I have to to cram in the farm work, household and business.

    Chat? Who has time to chat? A few scribbled ‘replies’ and that’s about it… You do what you want, period. If I see a happy flower once a week, I’ll be chuffed…

    1. Hey, Uncle Spikey, some people just think I have time to “chat” and so with my increased audience, I wanted to make it very clear, I do not have time to chat. Life is busy. I *eye roll* to think people actually having the luxury to sit and talk. What about LIFE? I am going into my busy season in my gardens, and I don’t know when I will be able to be here. Priority is LIFE. I was getting a bit overwhelmed by the emails I was getting and the invites to G-Talk. G what? So I scooped everyone together here to say this is what it is and I do my best. Thanks for the support. It means a lot to me. I know YOU too have a busy life. Farming is a LOT of work. ….giggling….just looking again at your words ….CHAT? Who has time? Exactly! GRIN!!!

      1. Hehe, yep. A few of these type of ‘chats’ is my limit. I am working from 06:00am, (4.30 in summer), and rarely stop before midnight. Trouble is people like to chat to you: luckily they don’t hassle me, lol πŸ˜€

      2. No fair. NO FAIR! I am up at 7am and see midnight a lot. Yes, people like to chat with me. That’s the problem. Grrrr……Looking forward to more of your pics, Uncle Spikey. I’ve saved myself from pulling out my hair when you have the “Guess what this is.” Seriously, thank you for taking the time to “chat”. I know how precious your time is. Same here. (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. I love photography, too! I’ve taught myself a lot on my own from books and websites. Unfortunately, where I live now doesn’t offer much photo opportunities, but I like doing post processing and photo manipulation with stock photos, which is a lot of fun, too : ) (((HUGS)))

      2. I’ve taught myself everything I know and am still learning. I have some really good books and if you ever want to read to keep learning, let me know and I will give you the names of them. I don’t do a lot of manipulation with my photographs accept for cropping and adjusting color/saturation and sharpness. I really try to take an image with the exact correct settings. Some which have busy backgrounds, I do adjust, so that the flower itself is the center of attention. I plan on being in my gardens today and photographing more flowers. I shall have FUN.

      3. Yes, trying to capture an object amid a busy background is definitely a challenge. Thanks for the offer of the book titles. I’m not reading photography books at the moment, but if I do in the future, I will let you know.
