Its been a crazy week...months of work to get ready for a 'Handmade Holiday' night at the church last night. So much work! I feel like I have be living and breathing holiday recipes, gift ideas and holiday decorating for the longest time.
Saying that I was nervous having to speak at the event would be an understatement. I had a full on breakdown 24 hours prior to getting up on stage and told Jason, through tears that I just couldn't do it. My fear of public speaking felt palpable at that stage.
But I knew that, no matter what happened - time would still pass - second by second, minute by minute and soon i'd be able to look back and say 'its over and I am proud of what we achieved.'
and I am.
So as this very nervous, sleep deprived Mama got up on stage last night - with sweating (but dead cold) palms and a wibbly voice - I prayed hard. I prayed that I could get perspective on this. Whilst the fear and situation seemed all consuming at that moment, I knew that in the great scheme of things it was ridiculous to be this stressed over something that was not life and death.
And second by second, minute by minute I got through it.
The pics are a few items that the Kids have been making over the last few weeks, that I spoke about at the event. I will show them in more detail soon, but today I want to switch off from 'Handmade Holidays' and focus on this neglected little family of mine. Who all deserve extra time and attention for their part in helping their Mama achieve her goal.
