So how has your week gone? Mine has been crazy as usual, but throughout the week I have been stitchin on my Be Forgiving block. I finished it, but this block has really caused me some sleepless nights this week. What exactly does it mean to "forgive." I have some people in my life that have betrayed me, treated me unfairly - as we all have. I really don't hold any bitterness against them as I learned long ago that bitterness only makes us miserable, doesn't really do anything to the person that did the "dirty" deed. I no longer trust these people or want anything to do with them....does that mean I have not forgiven them? I honestly wish them no ill will, but I have no desire to ever associate with them again. Can you ever truely forget the wrong that was done? Can you forgive someone, but still not trust them, be wary of even being around them? What do you all think - do you struggle with this too?
On the home front, I have been working on a screen that my father made for me a few years ago. I never got around to painting it, although I did use it for awhile. I had put fabric on it, but when a friend needed the fabric for a quilt she was working on, and could not find it anywhere..I just ripped it off and gave it to her, thinking it was time for a change anyway. This screen will be the perfect "blind" for my laundry room so that when my company is sitting in my dining room they can not see the storage area in my laundry area. Stay tuned...next week I hope to have a picture of the finished screen.
Oh..and btw, the table in the background was also made by my Dad. A lucky girl I am!
Hope you all have a wonderful week and I will see you in the blogs!
