I have the feeling that you get this. I say it constantly and then it goes on tomorrow's to-do list. Ha! Well what can I say? It's the way it goes when you're only one person.
I've got bits of fall peeping out here and there, and I'm not going to say the words, "I decided to keep things simple this year," because I've read those words on just about every decorating blog I've seen over the past week (which admittedly was very few since I can't seem to get my today's to-do list crossed off until tomorrow and that leaves very little time for blog reading). It just made me laugh. I have no idea if a tray with candle-y things is simple to you. It's a bit fancy for me to be honest, since I'm more of a single pumpkin on a table kind of girl...but I love it at night and we eat dinner by the glow of pretty so I plan to enjoy it.
(We can just lift the tray when the puzzle-mania takes over. We can't seem to get enough of puzzles these days.) I think it's helping our family work though conflict. Ha! (But I kind of mean that.)
in my shop. I love it. (More on that at the end of this post... eventually. Ha!)
Every time I pass this sign, the singer in my head busts out, "Don't push me.... cause I'm close to the edge... I'm tryin' not to lose my head... Uh huh huh..." And then I laugh and laugh. If you have any clue what I'm talking about I love you. If you don't, it's just a song. Kind of my theme song with the battle against fingerprints.
Tiffini, and when it came it was too pretty to keep in the box. It won't stay here but I needed to see it. I keep thinking maybe I should hang it better or center it or something. Yeah. Maybe eventually. (Realistically, like when I move it for Christmas.)
I know this is a busy season for most of my friends because their kids are doing things my kids aren't doing. We pretty much have ballet and guitar outside of school and once wrestling season begins in the winter, we'll put guitar on hold because I'm not capable of doing more than one activity a week per kid. I just can't. For most of my friends, the people they find time to hang out with are the ones doing the same activities they are in. It's understandable but it's also kind of sad when there's not a free hour to meet for coffee or a little walk with me, (Have friendship- will travel) and I guess I'm feeling a bit lonely watching them all scramble around, and missing their company!
I'm so afraid that admitting that all out loud makes me look like a freak and I don't want anyone to feel judged, I'm just kind of missing people is all. Can anyone out there relate? If so, what do you do about it? Just make new friends that aren't too busy to fit you in, and hang out with the old ones when their schedules free up?
absolute heart right now. The back story is of course, my son. He loves birds. He knows every fact there ever was to know about birds and he collects these feathers. I don't talk much about his Asperger's out of respect to him, but it's been a real challenge for me in particular lately, and God gave me a little sweet piece of hope this morning about my son's heart after praying specifically about that for the past few days. I borrowed a few of his feathers and then painted them, and every time I see this print, I will think about the incredible boy I was blessed with and how his challenges aren't too much for a God who gives an exhausted, lonely, hurting mama refuge and HOPE when she needs it desperately. Praise Him. (You can get yours here.)
"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."
