A little catch up

28 Jul

I started to write a post yesterday in the heat of the moment and then realized today that in order to be a better person, I should delete it and start fresh. I am deleting yesterday afternoon’s events from my life and am starting fresh today. I try not to live in the past despite the fact that about once a year it tries to invade my life and cause chaos, I try to always focus on the things and people that I have in my life instead of the things and people that are not in my life. I woke up this morning to find my husband laying in bed with me and the words he said to me, simple as they are, made me smile, on my face and deep in my soul. He said “I’m still home”. I know, the words may not mean anything to anyone else reading this, but to me they meant more than him just being physically here. He is my home. My two boys are my home. The heartbreak and events of the past, both good and bad, have shaped me into who I am today, and as difficult as times may have been, I’m a better Mother and Wife because of them. While both my parents choose not to be a part of my life, I do have to thank them for the lessons I have learned. I am a stronger person because of them. I’m lucky that I didn’t let my past define who I became, but instead made myself the opposite. I have realized that I Β no longer stand alone, I have a husband to protect and stand up for me, and two wonderful boys who love me more than anyone ever has. That is enough for me.

Thanks for letting me get that out. I’ve come to view this blog not only as a place to show my creative side, but also as a diary of my journey through life. So now let’s lighten the mood and look at what I’ve been up to this week.

I finished the crayon rolls that I had precut. I ended up having to redo 2 roll’s topstitching because I had some issues with the corners, so I changed to a walking foot and had no problems. I’m very happy with how these came out and am thinking that for Caleb’s birthday at school this year I will make these for his classmates instead of taking sweets. Ambitious, I know, but if I get started now there’s no pressure. I also finished another bracelet yesterday.

I love these bracelets so much!! They are so easy to make and I love a good portable project that can be done outside while the boys swim and play. And here’s what we’ve been up to lately in pictures.

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
