... at a snail's pace...

I have no photos today. ... sigh... I AM creating, but nothing has been finished for what seems like an age. It has now been almost 3 weeks since I have had a day to myself. Me, who is completely used to having EVERY day to myself. It is all good, but the freedom to lose myself in my Right Brain is now going to have to be planned for MUCH more carefully. I thought I knew that already, but the challenge is in keeping up the effort at organization.

I HAVE completed 2 more round robin projects, and am deep in a dressmaking endeavor for DD#2 who has a figure which needs some intensive fitting. (Tall slim dancers are NOT the type for whom pattern companies grade their patterns!!) I have also completed a fascinating experiment with some denim and a Clorox Bleach Pen. A fun playtime with some very interesting results -- stay tuned for a project to come! So, yes, things are happening, but nothing that will photograph well... alas for blogging!

I have also been doing my level best to be a Source of strength, rather than yet another who needs *his* strength to my DH, who is facing some serious challenges on the farm. Nothing major... just a string of odd coincidences and bad luck that add up I don't know how successful I have been, but I don't know what else I have to offer. He's not the kind of man who will ask for anything, and my intuition has run out of ideas. Maybe there really isn't anything else TO do. I wish I knew...

In the meantime, if you who read this are the praying kind, please remember us. I am becoming quite afraid of the next "little thing" which just might be the one thing too many for a good and strong man to bear. He would probably tell you I worry too much. I hope he's right.

Even tho' you are unusually busy, you are so wise to take time to create and soothe your spirit! I look forward to seeing ALL your new creations! As for Jake, I will SO keep him in my prayers, my thoughts, and my heart! Hopefully whatever string of events has burdened him will come to an abrupt end. I wish there were something I could do to help. You KNOW I care!

I am sure it will take some time to adjust to working outside the home AND having time for your creative work. With your talent and strong creative force, I am sure you will find a way.

Your husband sounds like mine- never asks for help or bitches about anything-LOL! Sometimes all we can do is love them and be there. I hope life calms down for him and no more problems arise.
Hugs-

Many prayers go out to you Judi.. sometimes our "trying to be strong" hubbies just need us to be there and don't necessarily need us to do anything specific. Just continue to listen for God's direction.
