Alphabet bean bags for Athanasius' Nativity present. Talk about the project of wanting to give up! I started before Thanksgiving but they are done.
The boys were watching the S.t John Maximovitch documentary. The kids love this documentary. Clay and I do too, it brings some peace to your soul. Clay and I were sitting in the stove room when I saw them on the table together, I grabbed the camera I want to remember this.
I am trying to squeeze out time from my days and start an etsy shop. This is a little girls purse I made, it is called the "Going on a Bear Hunt" purse. :)
Here are some earrings I made this weekend. I wonder, can I do this? Will anyone buy my stuff? Can I really keep up with this?
Maybe it is just winter and the fact that I keep thinking about planting a garden, but I feel a little "eh". Just keep moving forward I tell myself. I think this is how you might feel if you were half way done building a house, tired and wanting to give up. Of course we aren't building a house but Clay is in school. He still has a year and a half left. I'm a little tired. But I know we can't quit. I know this will bless our family down the road. But it is hard. I keep telling myself what our Priest says so often, "Jesus loves you and is mindful of you." Because when I say those words the weight of the world isn't quite so heavy and it's puts things in perspective. It will all be okay.
