So my last post was that beautiful gift wrapped day..........and because I want to blog authentically my friends, I have to just say then the next was all "unwrapped". The kind where you can't put your finger on it, but you know from the start it's a messy one. Maybe I had a bad attitude from the start.
This day we began to look for a dress for my theatre girl, Anna. You can can call her "Wendy" as in Peter Pan. Not a good day in Never Never Land. In fact, I decided I never, never want to go there again. Vintage shop after shop (should be fun, right???!!!) and all the thrift stores we could find...............nothing but my and her bad attitude. I had to stop. WE had to regroup.....we had to go to the fabric store and it was there I discovered I needed to give her wings. Gently, I needed to show her my wings and then hers......She picked out a sweet pattern ....lilac fabric....long flowing skirt. I showed her how to read a pattern package to find what she needed......she had an opinion on Zippers....yes, she does sew some too.........and we listened to each other and made a plan. We both agreed we needed to just ask Grandma to do this because we need it fast and she is super seamstress with not lots to do this week. We are so grateful for her ready and willing wings too.
Like I said, I never want to go there again, (any chance of that happening?!)not about the dress hunting~ but the fact that my day started in dread and I wasn't patient. Bad attitude. Really . But we learned. We talked about it too, later the next day. It's ok.....we found our wings.
Life is such a fertile learning ground, and thankfully the unwrapped days teach us. It's a journey! Wishing you a week filled with more wrapped days than uwrapped ones dear friends!
