I wanted to show you a bit of
It hasn't been all work
and no play around here.
One of the things
I am trying to keep in mind
Do I love it?
Does it reflect me?
This met my requirements.
I do love it.
It does reflect me.
It has handpainted roses and words
I've had it for a long time
it has looked like this for years...
the dark green mat is from my victorian decor days
not right for today's look
in order to really make progress
I also need to finish projects
so after deciding that it was a keeper
I set aside an afternoon to work on it
I painted the mat
then went after it with my spritzer of coffee
much better, don't you think?
to address my last post.
I'm not sure why I posted all of that
I tend to be like that.
But what I did not expect was
as raw and as real as my post was
your response was equally so
humbling, tear-producing, honest
you encouraged me to keep going,
you understood me-you struggle in this area,too.
because of you, my load is lightened.
of course, these comments from my girls mean the world to me.
I have all of your comments, sitting in my inbox,
to read again
I will publish them as I make my way to your place
because they deserve a personal reply
YOU deserve a personal reply.
if any of you are concerned about the lack of comments,
they are there.
