But some goals are more important than others... I am going to be a better wife... better mother... better Christian... better ME!
Those are the goals that I am honestly trying to focus on. So I ask your forgiveness when I fall so dreadfully short in the other, less critical areas. Even in these important areas my progress is painfully slow and sometimes nonexistent.
Currently we are remodeling our home and part of that remodel will include an enormous sewing room, as well as a new kitchen and family room. I get a little overwhelmed when I look at the current chaos - my sink, stove and fridge are in my dining area, and my table, chairs and food are stacked in my living room. I can't use my washer, dryer or sewing machines right now. They are blocked in by boxes of kitchen items. Its a bit frustrating and I have several more weeks before the addition is ready. I just have to remind myself that a brighter day is coming!
I don't know many of you personally. Some I have met at the various quilt shows. Others I have gotten to know a little better. I have been blessed to be able to pray with some of you as you shared the trials of your own personal life, and I am honored that you consider my designs worthy of your time and effort.
Whatever you are going through today, I hope you remember that a brighter day is coming! Trials are not forever. In the scheme of things, the small failures and problems that upset us are inconsequential. Focus on the bigger picture. Reward yourself for small victories, and keep going forward. You can do it!
