Today I would like to throw a Tantrum. I have been shopping lately for our holiday gifts, and boy, what an experience. I know that this is the season is for giving, but it sure doesn’t seem like people are feeling that way. Everyone seems to be short on money, temper and patience. There are always going to be those who ‘cut’ in line or try to ‘cheat’ to get a better deal, but the people I am talking about are the GRINCH’S of the season.
Somehow people – as a whole – don’t like to talk to other people anymore. I have been in so many lines where just a casual comment or a ‘hello’ gets responded to like I am ‘breaking into their bubble’ of space.
I am finding it harder and harder to ‘love thy neighbor’ when my neighbors give me dirty looks in line. I am just wondering what would make all these people so unhappy when there is so much joy in the world? Just thinking about how lucky we are – even if we are broke – and how wonderful our lives are in the United States……I just don’t understand why we have to be rude to each other too!
For me, even on my bad days my are met with smiles and sunshine, so remember, when you are in line or in a crowd…say or do something nice to a stranger – you never know what that will do for THEIR day.
Today I will be working on my newest creation……here is how it started
and here is where I left you yesterday…
For those of you who watched this bracelet come to life, you can read more about who it was for and what she thought of it in her REVIEW – http://bondwithkarla.com/krafty-max-review/
Today’s featured artist is; KevsKrafts. This amazing artist is much like many of us that had a life of raising kids and keeping up with the family, and then took to crafts. His dad started him with a skill saw when he was young and once he pulled it out of storage again it took on a life of its own. And now with family and friend encouraging him, he has made these amazing creations for us to buy. Remember, always support handmade artist when you can!
Today I want to leave you with this thought;
Judge people from where they stand, not from where you stand.
