In the middle of the work day, yesterday, I walked out.
Couldn't take it any longer,
it was sort of a mini-strike.
"When I get an anonymous blog..."
I will tell the story, but for now, the stress was too much.
Normally I "go to water".
Everyone knows it and really I guess they know where they could find me.
There is a lake nearby and several nice peaceful streams.
I have my spots. I would take pics and post them, but then someone might be able to find me.
Again..."When I have an anonymous blog..."
I went shopping.
Just to nearby Smicksburg.
And I saw a picture with this quote.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
I should have bought the picture right then!
Or better yet....
I should have it tattooed to the back of my hand...
or my forehead.
When I caved and went back to work, I was telling John and Jennifer about the quote.
I read it to them, several times.
I went on about how true that was and how I needed to live more like that and think about that every day, how I needed....blah blah, blah.
Jenn looks at me and says.
"Your quote in life should be 'Welcome to the crazy train!'".
Such wisdom in one so young.
Since I rarely post pics of my actual real job.
This is a shirt that we did yesterday.
It so fits the season, and the weather outside.
And another one of those really beat up sleds.
so I am going to wait until after the holiday to do it for her.
Right now I have one more order to paint before Christmas.
A couple of sewing/crafting items.
Lots of gifts that I still want to make!
I am going to start earlier next year.
Welcome to the crazy train!
