I am working on a review that is due tomorrow. I was going to put this picture in it to show how I tend to leave projects half finished..(because the craft for the review is not 'quite' complete), but it occurred to me that perhaps the company who sells the product I am sampling would not like THIS picture in the post lest people think THAT is the product so I am putting the picture here in a separate post. I asked my mom if she had any of my projects that I made growing up that were 'half finished." Here is a pot holder she found. You will have to wait until tomorrow to see the other 'project' we are working on.
How does this work in with gratitude?? I am thankful, on occasion that I am a 'good enough gal.' I have a scrapbooking buddy that will spend the same amount of time on one page that I will spend on five pages. Her books are beautiful!! Mine..not as much. But both of our books are unique to us. So maybe I am not necessarily thankful that I am a 'good enough gal' so much that God created each of us unique. At least life doesn't get boring that way. I think God made our children all unique too and when we train them up in the way they should go..in their interest..with their God given strengths... they will not depart from it and will grow into who God made them to be.
I am also learning to let things go and be more of a Mary than a Martha. Sometimes the potholders can hold...even for a few decades...while we search for something else of greater importance.
