Is It O.K. to Send Yourself a Card? *2S4Y Kazan #20*
I made a goal for myself at the beginning of the year to make and send out a card a day this year...cards for events like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, showers, etc., but also to randomly send out cards to let others know they were being thought of. I think receiving a card in the mail is a really great pick me up. Sooooooooo....I think I need to send myself a card. I have been in a horrible funk the last couple of days and I normally just don't get in funks. I feel like I need to crawl out of my own skin. I'm ornery as heck and I know I'm not pleasant to be around. I wish I could blame it on PMS, but it would have to be PPMS. It didn't help that my children locked me in the garage last night when I was getting the dog some food. They thought it was funny and I would laugh. It wasn't and I didn't. (well, at least not in my present mood) I made this card using Kazan's sketch #20 at 2 Sketches 4 You. It was an amazing sketch and I know I didn't do it justice, but it was nice to make and I think I'm going to mail it today... to me...It will be nice to know that someone is thinking of me...even if it is just me!
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
