I Should Be Kinder to Myself

Life has been very busy.  I'm not getting much accomplished.  I need to learn a new way of managing my days and I've never been very good at it.

Our church's General Conference is coming up this weekend.  I like to have an embroidery project to work on during conference because it is like taking notes for me.  (I used to take notes - with lots of doodles in them - but Maxx just gets too involved with my writing for that to be useful anymore)  Having a piece of handwork that I can go back to helps me remember the spirit of conference and often helps me recall some of the ideas and words that struck me the most.  (it's a cognitive thing - some people feel offended that Molly and I do handwork during conference but it really does assist both of us with both cognition and recollection.)

Anyway, I've been trying to think of a good project for a few weeks and last night I remembered an image that really struck me a few years ago so I went browsing around my blog to find the entry where first I linked to it.  The image isn't exactly as I remember it but the blog post reminded me of how difficult that period of my life was.  Things were so rough and so uncertain.

But we seem to have made it across - or at least half way.   We've learned a lot about traversing difficult terrain, anyway.

I need to remember that on days like this when I seem unreasonably slow and unproductive.  I will learn and improve.  Probably sooner that I expect to.

(And I promise - I will post updates on our kitchen and Ruby Thursday over at the Beorningstead next week.  She is beautiful!)
