I think my reynauds is getting worse as for most of the day I have had dead fingers and toes and I just cannot seem to get the circulation sorted out in them.
It's not a good look - whie fingers are not very festive.
It is making typing very difficult, and doing pretty much anything else too. It was quite funny as I tried to do my coat up to come home as I couldn't feel what I was doing.
Just as well I have no time to scrap then!
I do have a new JYC page to share though.
I snapped this little corner in the kitchen (It is sort of a corner shelving unit)
They are two willow tree figurines we bought - well Nigel bought for me as presents. They seem to sum us up - a young couple - like we were - and an old couple - like we are. Older but still together.
The hearth int he centre which has a tea light holder was a gift from Sam and Chris and comes out every christmas.
So the photo became my focus for my JYC today
I also have a new piece of scrapping to share - well an old new piece actually as I made it last month. It is my 10 on the 10th page and having done 10 reasons why I love Winter this is 10 things I love about Autumn or Fall - and it was hard to narrow it down to 10 actually.
Today I am thankful for
- finally starting to feel warm
- shortbread - oops
- Nigel having a very good day
And finally my page a day calendar page
“Sometimes he can be such a ___________.” (FILL IN THE BLANK.)
Have you ever said that, or something like it, about someone? Your spouse, your child, that obstreperous person on your church committee, a neighbor?
Boy, I sure have. One of my biggest challenges was with a colleague.
One day after a particularly contentious meeting, I said some harsh words about him and his actions. “I know the Bible says I’m supposed to love this guy,” I sputtered to another coworker. “But I don’t and I don’t know how I would.”
“Maybe you don’t have to know,” he said, “at least not right away. Treat him respectfully and give yourself a break. A lot of the time, love begins with an action, not an emotion. It’s something you do, even though you don’t feel it.”
That advice has stayed with me. I still have days when I can’t love certain people in my heart the way
the Bible commands us to love. But I’ve learned that I can love with my actions and my words: respectful listening, a helpful suggestion, a silent prayer. That has made a huge difference, not only in the way I treat people but often in the way they treat me.
