Lovely Sunshine in the Winter....
When you've finally got some, you want to enjoy it....right?
Well, we actually had some, and sadly I've gotten sick :(
Here's the skinny:
1. Have two little boys who've been sick for a few weeks.
2. Took them to Children's Hospital on Friday for the oldest one's scheduled check up.
(this is an ongoing rare disease...yeah....lots more to that story...but won't bore you here. checkup went well...but lots more concerns to deal with now...icky)
3. Happily escaped on Saturday for a girls' day away at a local vintage/craft show.
4. Started getting sick with nasty cold/flu half way through the day.
5. Fell into bed that night and have been laying low ever since.
Boo hoo hoo
So now that you know the short version of my plight... you can see the Bobbidy part!
Here is the latest in my Bobby Pin collection that I'm now featuring over at my shop
These cheerful little bobby pins are making me very happy right now...the color is cheering me up, even though they are not real sunshine (which I missed out on by the way due to the crud) they are happily reminding me that Spring WILL come eventually.
I would wear these myself on a fun day out touring a tulip field, or shopping at a flea market. However I think they'd be even sweeter in a little girls' hair this Spring!
I always gift package items like this for my Etsy shoppers...it's just that extra little thing that makes people happy when they open their package on delivery day. I also send these to other people on behalf of a gifter...and I add gift tags too! I love all that packaging stuff....don't you???
I think it brings a bit of sunshine into our lives when someone cares enough to spend an extra couple of minutes to treat them to a thing of beauty.
Don't you love to get a beautifully wrapped package?
Well, I hope you are all well today.
The truth for me?
Not such a good day :(
Actually pretty yucky one...but I have to remember....it could be SO MUCH WORSE.
I am daily reminded that my life is so blessed....and yet when even the dumbest of things goes wrong I get a little frumpy and start to feel sorry for myself.
That's just SO wrong of me.
I must remember to turn my eye to all that is good in my life, and dwell in Him.
Easier said than done, right?
I am bound and determined to try!
Here I go......
....got a little extra prayer time left?
Count me in if you will;
I could use it.
