I was ready to give up on this 31 Days stuff. Yesterday was a hard fibromyalgia day, and I felt drained. We began our new curriculum for lessons, and it went very well, which is wonderful encouragement for me, but it was a lot of work. It was a busy, hustle-and-bustle day with PrincessA’s dance class added in. My heart and mind were totally in to making a card after the children went to bed, but my body was ready to just plop into bed and sleep, sleep, sleep.
Not having a card to post for today as a result, not really having the time to write anything else, and with party plans looming ahead this weekend, I figured today would be ‘the end’ day for my short stint as a 31 Days blogger, and I was bummed at the prospect of not keeping my commitment.
Then a sweet blogging friend sent me an email at 9:42 p.m. last night, encouraging me not to give up on it. I don’t think she knew that I felt like today would be the end – she just wanted to encourage me, I think. And it was just what I needed!
So after a good night’s sleep, I woke up this morning and right after breakfast and math lesson, I snapped out of my funk and got to work on a card. And since tonight is mostly a ‘relax’ night, I think I just might get some more cards created to get ahead.
So, Lisa girl, this one’s for you! 😉 A ‘Thanks So Very Much’ card for taking the time to come over here to a weary blogger’s blog and leave a sweet comment of encouragement to help her keep on with it all.
And Thanks So Very Much also to all of you who actually read my blog and/or stop by to comment here and there as well. I appreciate it!
It’s difficult to see in these photos, but I used the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate on the Kraft cardstock, and the Cane Print Impression Plate on the brown at the top. And the inks on the flowers and the Label look kind of pink, but I used brown on the label and red on the flowers.
