BJP 2012 February and March

My BJP 2012 garden is a little slow blooming this year.  But here are a few blossoms so far

I already shared January, so let's play catch up with February and March.

February was a tough month for me.  I was anything but Happy.  So to pull myself out of my pit of un-Happy, I chose my February aspiration: Bee HAPPY

I wanted to mix it up a bit, so I found some purple buttons that I decided to use.
My embroidery skills leave a lot to laugh at - but its wasn't a Happy laugh.

A couple of sequins tossed in.
Even those party gems couldn't turn my frown around.

The more I worked at  Happy the more I wasn't - both personally and when it came to this BJP entry.  Hated it.  And then I stumbled across this little quote that I have hanging on my fridge.  You know how when you have something for a long time, you tend not to 'see' it anymore?  That's how it was with this little snippet:
Hmm.  Well said Mr. Ripley D. Saunders. 

March was a very windy month (literally - holy cow, the winds blew fiercely).  I would watch the wind whip through the trees and pray for them to stay Strong (yes, I'm a tree hugger and proud ot it).   Personally, I was struggling with conflicting feelings of whether or not I should try AGAIN to make it work with Pete.  Right at that time that I was wavering back and forth - I got a message from a dear blog friend (yes, Nicole Campanella, I'm talking about you).  She gave me a cyber shoulder to cry on and helped me to stay Strong and be true to me.   No brainer there - I would aspire to Bee STRONG in March.

What the ......I don't have any pictures of March????  Oh geez!  Sorry about that.  Its dark now, so I will take a picture of the finished blossom tomorrow and get back to you.....

Kyah and Rainy enjoying a beautiful morning
Bead Happy and Often (and don't forget to take some pictures along the way!!)

I hope you are doing better. I've been so out of the loop the past 6 months and I haven't gotten far enough back in your blog to know what has made you struggle to be happy, but I know that I want you to BEE HAPPY, and am sorry for what ever is troubling you. That picture of the pets back is so adorable. I love pictures of pets and people looking away...makes you wonder what they are looking at, or what they are thinking...

Have a really beeautiful day!

Hi Lynn,
I'm happy to hear from you even if it is not the "happiest" of posts. You know we cant always write those chirpy happy posts because that's not real life. I too am not so happy these days....this to shall pass. Rely on your friends, lean on your friends if they can't help you in these times than why do we have them?
Thinking of you.
