I used to be such a procrastinator and worked very well under pressure. Not so today. My body doesn't deal with stress very well. Nowadays I tend to get things done really early because, hey, you never know what can happen!
I suppose some may think that sounds a bit pessimistic, but really I do things early to be able to enjoy the present. I want to be able to take time to look at a rainbow, a beautiful sunset, or clouds passing over a full moon. I want to take time to really look at my girls and my husband and to be able to fully listen to their joys, sorrow, or concerns. I want to be able to take a nap when I'm tired and to cozy up under a quilt with a good book or movie when I don't feel well.
So I work slowly and I don't get as much done as I would like. I work in snatches of time. Yes, I certainly wish I could make more bears, but I wouldn't trade my life for anything. I even have a small metal sign that hangs on our front door reminding us:
Life is a gift
that's why it is called
Heaps of Hugs,
