Father's Day Craft shhhhhh.......

Okay I was really angry the other day from being attacked verbally and was feeling very defensive. By acting that way I was letting the person win and I was just feeling down. I have taken a few days to think about it and have calmed down and decided not to let someones ignorance get the best of me or my days so I am going to forget about it.

Shhhh we made these fathers day bags and you fill them with kisses and other things dad likes to eat! I downloaded the printable from and the idea was from The kids drew and wrote what they loved about their sad on the outsides of the bags too!!!!

Time Alone....

                 I know this might sound terrible and selfish but I really want to be left alone. I want time by myself to think, daydream, craft, nest and just be alone with my thoughts. I want some serenity, I want time to read a good book, bake something or just nap. I don't want to be judged, or questioned about my religious beliefs in a sarcastic manner, its no ones business. I don't want to be questioned "what are you doing today" with a controlling manner not a genuine care and concern.

            If people want to speak to me I want it to be with Respect, that's all, not with some twinge of sarcasm or nastiness behind it.  That's all I want right now.

Taking Time to Talk and Listen

In a perfect world every child would return home from school to be greeted with a plate of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, a tall glass of cold milk, and a mother ready to take the time to talk and listen about her child’s day. We do not live in a perfect world, so you can skip the cookies and the milk, if you like, but don’t skip the “take the time to talk and listen.”
