Challenge Day 3


I changed up a bit seeing everyone working with other mediums made want to get my water colors out and play a bit. So I know it makes it hard to read but here is the journaling:
I accomplished one more day of cleaning and picking up. It does make a difference. MY husband and children are noticing the difference too. It was really nice to eat at the table last night.

Seth woke up during the night it reminded me of when I was a child and would get into bed with my parents. My mom would stroke my hair until I fell asleep. NowI do that for my children. Life does take many twists and turns.

The adage when life gives you lemons make lemonade. So it is with a problem, make it into something to nourish and renew yourself. Don't let go to waste because you will also waste that opportunity to grow and become more, every experience brings something to you.

Just fabulous - I SO love this quote "a problem, make it into something to nourish and renew yourself" - I think we should use it for the challenge! It's great!
