Yes, that's right. Having trouble with some blocks I am working on. Something simple is giving me a challenge. Otherwise it has been a good day. I got a free lunch today as the Historical Society hosted a luncheon for the volunteers and it was topped off with a really fine chocolate layer cake. And I mean reeeeaaaallllly fine!! ;-) It was nice to meet some of the other volunteers and great to be appreciated! :-)
After the lunch was over, I went just a few blocks to the Women's Correctional Facility for an afternoon of card crafting. I brought lots of pretty ribbons, papers, pens, and glitter so that the women could make Mother's Day cards. Every one was very appreciative of the opportunity to make something personal for their mother or grandmother. And even though I was very tired when I left, I felt very good as I do every time I leave there. And it's not because I am glad that I am not in there because that old saying "there but for the grace of God go I" is pretty true......No, it's because I made a teeny tiny difference not only to the women but to the people who will receive their cards. I love the ripple effect that you can get from this kind of thing, even though I never really know exactly what that effect is. I just know that I come away feeling like my time matters. And in this busy world when time flies too fast, I think that's a good thing.
Speaking of time, I was thinking a couple of hours ago that I would go to bed early because I am so tired. Then I started putzing with these blocks that I am working on and I cannot believe how challenged I am by some simple blocks. Perhaps I should go to bed and when I start over in the morning and perhaps it will all go more smoothly. Sure hope so!!
