Sporting a black eye...

for the first time in my life. I bumped my head in the shower in the hotel we were staying in in Edmonton. You know how in times like that you feel like a 6 year old and just want to bawl your eyes out because it was so ouchie? and then you remind yourself you are 36 and get over it? Well, now I have one, I am kind of proud of it.

HA! so , now you know all about my black eye, I have to say the day is a good day. I am listening to Joyce Meyer today and I am so getting me this book... Battlefield of the mind. I highly recommend that you listen to todays program.
I love the 2008 challenge gallery! If you did a page, please make sure it made it to the gallery. I have been very diligent in adding the pages but I might have missed one... so email me and tell me. (Please be patient with me but) I am still so excited about the valentine class. I got some more cups from starbucks this morning (those girls are the best and I thanked them for you) so there is no need to worry about the little project kits... there are plenty. I am so surprised at the response. Just am. And I am working on some more pretty little watercolors for free downloads. Sigh. If I am creative, I am happy.

A thought for today... Psalm 27:13 What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord's goodness in the land of the living!14Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

Be blessed. Feel loved!

That's quite a shiner you gave yourself. You are being a very good sport about it. I would be playing it up to get as much sympathy from the kids as I could, lol!

Hi Wilna! I love Joyce's a counselor I recommend it to clients all the time! I also know this AMAZING artist who made an inspired visual reminder. You can see it at:

Notice the little army men...she's SOOOOO inspirational! I'll say a prayer for your black eye...owies at 36 are just embarassing, aren't they?

Hmm- I did the same thing. I was in a hurry to get to CK scrapbook convention and fell getting out of the shower. I would not let that keep me from going to the convention and by Sunday I looked like a racoon. Thank goodness for make-up. One of the instructors suggested I scrap it. I did! I can laugh about it now.
