In spite of all the adversities in life that my family is currently facing slowly each day, I find comfort in the fact that all these will pass...I have people who cared for us...I have friends from beyond my computer praying and thinking of us...And there are friends and family who despite their own troubles in life, are there for us when we beckon for their help...We still are blessed!
The past few days, I poured most of my attention on my other life: my passion for creating crafts and jewelry. I was driven by a NEED. A need to create lovely pieces that people would love and appreciate which I hope would sell in my etsy store and generate money in return. I have enslaved myself for about 3 days working on my jewelries and crafts like a mad woman! It was also a good way of taking my mind away from the mundane thoughts of things unknown. So there I was, my fried brain conjuring up oh so lovely designs...so lovely, I wish I don't have to sell them! I guess my creative side has been enforced by my emotional state.
Those pieces might be the last ones too...since spending is a BIG expense all by itself, stocking up on my inventory may not be feasible at this point. So, I'll just cross my fingers including my toes and hope to God almighty that my pieces does sell and not sit there collecting dust in vain...
On a happy note, we went to Farmer's Market yesterday and got the best deal in life. We bought a whole bunch of fresh fruits and veggies, a week's worth, all for the price of 18 dollars! It would have cost us roughly about 45 dollars if we got them at Harris Teeter! Talk about dirt cheap! We were in awe as we left the grounds. Not to say, we enjoyed the free tastings too! Free snack while you shop is always the highlight of the day, that's for sure! :) And what's best about the trip was that it was the last sunday they're open for the season. And we were there to enjoy the bounty. We were lucky!
Life isn't as bad as we think afterall...And so, we will continue to perform in this operatic stage of life - no matter if it's comedy or drama - it will be performed with our best talents and abilities and always show a brave front! We will continue to inspire others and show that life is what we make it and live it to the fullest and be grateful to our audiences ; those people who have graced and touched our lives along the way!
So how are you today? has life been gracious to you? or has it been bad?
