Life gets in the way of Crochet...
Some days start out with WAY too early text messages at 5:45am that wake me up because my East Coast friends forget about the 3 hour earlier time difference since I moved to the West Coast 2.5 years ago.
Some days start out with mom up way too early at 6:30am in a bad mood and not letting me do what needs to be done.
Some days involve a whole day of trying to unsuccessfully get one load of towels in the washer.
Some days involve spilled Cheerios all over mom, the table, the floor & the cat.
Some days involve the neighbor locking himself out of the house and asking to borrow the ladder to get back in through the attic window.
Some days involve me being the fixer for everyone else's issues and ignoring my own needs.
Some days it all just comes at you hard and fast and all you really just want to run away and go some place to hide and Crochet!
Yes, some days are all of those things all in one.
Some days we have the best of intentions to be productive only to be side-lined by the realities of Life. Nothing can be done to stop it or help it, so we must learn to swim with the flow or be drowned by the waves of chaos.
There are many days like this and we all must learn to just be understanding, go with the flow, accept what cannot be changed, step back, and say "Tomorrow is another day".
Don't worry about what you have no control over. Don't be upset over things you cannot change. Understand that sometimes Life just happens. Don't be too hard on yourself. Know that you are going to make mistakes. Learn to Forgive yourself and know that you are doing the best you can with what you have to work with.
The important thing is to "Just Keep Swimming" and to Hope for tomorrow.
