Today’s page features my little Frosty Snowman… which is odd, as my thoughts today were about Christmases in climates where it almost certainly doesn’t snow!
We got our annual Christmas letters from our sponsored children today and reading their descriptions of Christmas dinner really brought me up short: one special dish mentioned was ‘rice with raisins.’
It makes you realise how much we have, doesn’t it? I popped that letter in a scalloped pocket made from card, which I stitched around.
My next page featured a photo of some of the decorations at the craft fair I did last month.
I journalled about a tougher than usual day, where I really needed to ‘choose my mood’. Not letting my feelings sit in the drivers seat is an ongoing battle with me and I’m getting better at talking back to myself:
“No: this day has not been disastrous because of ‘x’: there was also ‘y’ and ‘z’, both of which went very well, so chin up, chicken.”
And I couldn’t resist popping this Kitty pic on my page too: serious Grinch face, there!
