I would like to share with you, the gift I give myself all year long: AUDIBLE
are you a listener? Boy I am. I used to be a HUGE reader. But my husband doesn't like the light on in bed, and I like to read best, right before bed, so that doesn't make for good bed partners :)
Let's be honest here peeps, I am no busier than most, but I meet myself coming and going on MOST days. I'm as honest as the day is long and I'm not embellishing how much goes on here in my house on any given day. Plus...if you are my friend on FB, you know that I'm going, going, going like the energizer bunny. My friend Ann says I'm going to drop dead one of these days if I don't take a break. But then Ann doesn't realize, I've been like this for 45 years. God made me this way. I embrace it! Downloading a book and listening while I work, while I drive, while I stitch (you don't know how much stitching you can whiz through by never having your eyes leave your work and just sitting and having a story read to you)...AMAZING!
If you give it a go....
or if you are a member, this book recommended to me by my Sandi! (HI SANDI!)
is excellent! I'm not done yet...but really a good story.
I finished one just like this earlier this summer for a client. Loved how it turned out and bought the chart and repeated it for a gift for a special family friend.
the design is Lizzie*Kate 2014 Santa and it is still available. Here is the chart picture:
I love how this looks so....I will be re-stitching this and repeating it for ME! and finishing it the very same way for a THREE-PEAT finishing :)
that does it for DAY 22!!
Until Day 23...
I'll be keeping my hands to work..
my heart to God..
while treating my neighbor with kindness and respect,
and trying to be the best me I can be.
It's hard, isn't it?
I may stumble and I may fall, but I pick myself up and I remember:
To thine own self be true...
I want to BE the change I want to SEE.
