but there is always the chance that i will change my mind and get some other lovely thing... i am fairly certain this won't be the last bit of ink i acquire, so it isn't like "this or nothing"...
dusty and i are almost completely in sync about getting the same thing, though...
*sunday will thus be spent lounging, eating, napping and the like..
PS... this is the state of my largeness at 23 weeks 2 days and counting... i am going to be HUGE!
if i only made myself look around and leave my shell once in a while, i would be able to see the strong, beautiful, creative women around me and really live life with them.
i was reading Proverbs 31 this morning, and i noticed that she never let herself get caught up in the things around her. she was so busy living the life that she was created for that she didn't have time for envying others. if i could only get over what i wasn't made for (but kinda want) i could be so much more of a wife, mother, daughter, neighbor, friend... the list is never ending.
i let myself use a personality type as a crutch. how pathetic is that?
i wasn't made the way i am to keep to myself all of the time. what kind of example will my children have? how could they "rise up and call me blessed" if i can't even see myself that way?
this is going to be hard. this is going to frustrating, exhausting and scary. but i fully believe that living the life i was made for will be the best blessing i could possibly receive other than salvation.
this is not a caffeine free kind of weekend...
the top picture is the front, and the bottom picture is the front and a peak at the backing. like i said, we'll see how this actually turns out...
this is exactly why i need stephen to finish the sewing room soon...
