MOJO98 and a little note
I'm sitting here with my feet in a warm soak and decided that I better slow down and take a moment to touch base with my blogging friends. My sister Marie, known to my blogging friends as Marie with a :-), left Monday after a week long visit with her family to Vermont. I can not express the love and respect I have for her in words. She lifts my spirits to a place where I feel so free. She is one of the very rare individuals I can share anything with and know that I will not be judged. It was hard to say goodbye and knowing that she is so far away brings tears to my eyes. For anyone who has been blessed to welcome her into their lives understands all too well what a truly special person she is.
I have had a very difficult time crafting. In a previous post, I shared a picture of the children I care for. We had held a childcare fundraiser/lawnsale on July 24th. When the sale was finished I posted the leftover items on a freecycle list as I felt that someone out there could use the items we had. (Now let me say, there were lots of items left over). The items that needed to be brought into my home were put on the front porch to bring inside the next morning. When we woke, we found that the items on the porch had been taken also. Now I understand that material items can be replaced, however; one tote was filled with scrap booking / card making items which included a box of ALL the handmade cards I have made since I began a couple of years ago. My heart is broken and my creative side frozen. The stamp sets, punches, paper etc. can be replaced but not the piece of my soul that is carried with each of these cards and projects.
I tried a MOJO today ... I was saddened that it was void of the exhilaration I typically feel when I create something.
