After some long stressful months of having my honey jobless, it is about time for me to get back to some normal things in life such as creating beautiful cards and reading good books. Thankfully Jon got a job a few weeks ago and little by little the stress is unwinding. I am finding a renewed thankfulness for what I have and what I continue to be blessed with. I am reading "Robinson Crusoe" by Daniel Defoe and enjoying it very much and there is something about the character of the shipwrecked "Robin" ~ that's what he calls himself ~ that changes as he spends years and years in solitude not knowing what lies ahead for him. He comes to appreciate what he has and recognize the mercies from a higher power that had spared his life and provided for his basic needs. I'm in the middle of the book and have still to find out how it all ends.
I bring up my reading adventure because while Jon was jobless we didn't know how long it would be until we were rescued from our struggles. The past few months have shown me that when I am thankful, truly thankful for what I have, no matter how difficult my situation, the more I am able to see the bigger picture and realize just how blessed I am, even in hard times.
Now that I can enjoy some "me" time, I started making cards again. This card is for Laura's sketch #26
