One Big Sob Fest
What a week! There was the Pinewood Derby, home sales party, volunteering, homework, and to top it off, my husband and I spoke in church on Sunday. So I was sitting on the stand, feeling fairly prepared when in walked a family I hadn't seen in 3 months. On Christmas Eve, they were out skiing when a snowboarder ran full speed into mom and 5-year-old daughter. The daughter and snowboarder were killed and mom has been in the hospital and rehabilitation up until this week. When I saw them walk in and she smiled up at me, I broke. I felt my lips quivering, my husband noticed I was no longer singing and I knew there was no hope for me. My husband assures me I didn't cry the whole way through, but I don't believe him. For a person who keeps their emotions very private, to have a full congregation staring up at me and watching me cry....it was quite humbling. What does this have to do with my recovering craft hoarding? Nothing at all. I just haven't recovered from my week. I've got some great spring decorations up and have been trying my hand at sewing. Can't wait to show you. But first, I'll have to take some pictures. It'll be an awesome week!
