A Monday full of Learning....

I have been so busy! I apologize for not getting samples and updates on here for a few days. I will get back on track. For now, I would just like to share a couple of things I learned today. I have a dear friend that I really look up to. She is one of those people that is just inspiring. We were e-chatting this morning about all the things we were involved in and all the directions we were being pulled and she said something that just really stuck with me. She said, "there are some things any willing person can do and some things only you can do, and I think sometimes we need to focus on the things only we can do. and let somebody else do the other things."
That just really made me think. I've been thinking all day about the things that Only I can do. I have to admit that the only things I could think of are things that relate to my family. Only I can love my children like nobody else, only I can support my husband in all he does, only I can be me. Think about it.

The other thing...which is a total switch of gears is about stamping. Lots of people tell me they use baby wipes to clean their stamps. Did you know that "one thing about using baby wipes is they contain lanolin in them, eventually that lanolin will transfer from your stamp to your stamp pad, and will lay a coating on your stamp pad, prohibiting you from getting good ink coverage on your stamps?" This info is from Judi of Judikins. So....you need the SU stamp cleaner! ;o))

The third thing I learned today is about motherhood. I was at a MOPS meeting (Mothers of Preschoolers) this morning and we did a fun craft...yes, I was in charge of that....but the other thing we did was to listen to a segment of a talk by a speaker that I can't remember the name of...but she was talking about giving birth. According to her, after you do the push to get the baby out and then the push to get the afterbirth out, what comes out next is actually your BRAIN! I tell ya, this explains SOOOO much to me! I feel like I have very little brain some day sand apparently, I DO have very little if any brain left! I mean, I've had six children. If I lost a big chunk of brain with each birth....maybe I shouldn't drive any more....

Okay beckie,that first paragraph made me tear up and that last paragraph made me laugh out loud. "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion" spoken by Truvy on Steel Magnolias. I agree! Thanks for being YOU! I love you.
