My gift to all of you is the wish...that you will all read this book. I am having "ah ha" moments every paragraph and know that if it is singing my song that it might play a tune for you!
I had a conversation with my sis that the only time I really lose my composure (temper...as in tantrum event) is when I feel stupid and usually in the kitchen. She suggested that whenever I start to lose it that I say, "that is so not like me." Needless to say...it works! I have not "lost it" in 2 weeks!!! Even when this ladle jumped out of the pancake bowl and landed on the floor!
...or when I was throwing an egg shell into the sink from the stove and the whole egg in my other hand flew along with it, lol...I am getting closer to finding my 2014 word.
You don't have to have a word...but I have found that choosing a word as a touchstone when things are going crazy can bring you back to a place of peace. I have been choosing a word each year and found that at my most painful, angry or fearful moments if I bring that word to mind...I feel better.
I have been very behind on my stitchery of the month and had to stop by Sew Many Quilts to pick them up...those sisters, Kathy Schmitz and Bonnie Sullivan have me by the pigtails! Enjoy the slide show!
