Time to move on…

Hi Everyone…I see it’s been many months since I’ve last posted, 2013 was a very crazy year for the Moss house it all started back in July…we went camping for the first time in the season – we love our trailer – we had a wonderful two week vacation planned heading south into the USA….and then

My DH was experiencing some chest pains, and to make a long story short he didn’t have a heart attack but in the end the best treatment for him was open heart surgery. Those of you who know me, I’m 36 years old, my DH is just a tad older then me and at the time our daughter wasn’t even 2. We had so much to lose, a husband, a daddy, a brother…life for me has been changed entirely.

I went through so many emotions, my DH went through life changing feelings about our family and our lives long term and essentially short term – where do we go from here, what do we do next?

So, re-evaluating everything, our family, our extended family, our support systems (or lack there of). It’s time for life to make a change and the only people that can do this is me, my husband and our daughter as a family unit. So, we are going to do just that!

Pastimes has been wonderful for me, I’ve learned so much about marketing and having an online business…we have amazing visitors, 7,000 + unique people visit my site a month – more really when I’m a dedicated blogger. I’ve connected with people all over the world and it’s my hobby shoppe as they’d say. After 4+ years it’s time for me to move onto something new. I work full time, I’m a sales person through and through…so back into the B2B sales and loving it!

I’m still a quiter, sewer and stitcher, I’ve also dabbled in a bit of scrapbooking over the months because having London in my life makes scrapbooking a bit of a necessity.

and here’s the two of us…she says, “you’re my best friend, right mom” and I say you betcha!

I’ve discovered that I get to chose who I want to share my life with…and who gets a spot in my heart. My family is the BEST thing that’s EVER happened to me…

So here’s to all of YOU who’ve invested your time reading my blog (which by the way I’m going to start writing again…) supported me throughout the years and still do and to those of YOU who have helped pick and choose along the way the projects that we do and did as a club!

Here’s to YOU All – THANK YOU!

  1. Cheers! To you my friend … Life is short so surround yourself with happiness and thanks for awakening my passion for stitching and quilting again! Hope we can continue to get together and stitch in the future. Wishing only the best for you and your wonderful family . Cheers!!

  2. Valerie, I'm so sorry to hear of the tough time your family has gone through in the past 6 months! You can still definitely quilt, sew and stitch while being a full time worker outside the home. There is just less of it and that is ok. I'm thinking of you and though we've never met, I somehow know you can handle whatever comes your way! Hugs!

  3. I sure hope your DH is doing better after his surgery. Those life changing events sure do make you see what is important and what is not. We went thru something similar 11 years ago. Today I still am thankful for my husband’s life.
