My life is really not perfect. It is really not terrible either! I am very grateful for the life and circumstances I have been given. But it isn't perfect. I have bad days, and I make mistakes, and crummy things happen sometimes. They come and then they go. Some of them I try really hard to forget. Some I try to remember so that I can learn from them and try to do a little better next time. So, occasionally I am going to blog about my imperfect life and the things I learn.
I learned, or was reminded, of a few good things on that stressful day last week.
Sunshine is very wonderful and I had been missing it.
I very easily forget cleaning tips that I've learned and used in the past,
and should make them a habit, not just a good idea now and then.
I really don't have to do everything.
Oh yeah, I want to improve myself...I don't always want to be just like
this. It is ok to make changes here and there.
I need to vent. Simply talking or writing about what is troubling me
does wonders for the way I am feeling. As soon as I published that last
post I felt much better about things and I was able to get over feeling so
Prayer is ALWAYS a good idea. I can't think of anything that helps
I want this to be a blog about the real me. I can't be anyone else. And I'm pretty happy about that.
Oh, one more quick thing. I'm almost done with my Advent Envelopes. The envelopes themselves are all done and I'm about halfway finished with the little cards to go inside. I can't wait!

So over the weekend I started and finished one Christmas gift! It is for one of my very littlest nieces and I hope she likes it.
My Mom gave one of these to my youngest when he was pretty little and he loved it. Then I saw this idea, and decided to try something like it. My babies all loved the crinkly noises that plastic makes. I just used an empty wipes package and stuffed it inside the square. It measures approximately 6x6 inches.

a daughter who says, "Ooooh, Yay!" when I say, "You need to practice the piano."
a husband who loves me, no matter what,
prayer and the peace it brings,
and a nice warm house,
just to name a few.
