My Lesson

Yesterday I was pretty heartbroken.  Over a lemon-aid stand gone awry no less.  Really, it was about making the effort to "do something", and have it fail miserably.  But my sweet husband prayed with me, and reminded me that not all our efforts will be successful.  Not everything I do is going to be a giraffe.  But that doesn't mean I should give up.  It was a speed-bump in the road, not a stop-sign.  
Off to figure out what I'm going to do next!

Don't be discouraged!!! When things don't work out the way we want them, it doesn't mean we failed- I have learned that so very much in the last couple of years. My husband is making the frame for the painting and I hope to have that finished in the next few days - it may not be the next giraffe - but anything is better than nothing!

Amy, you are doing something. You are an amazing Mom who has already taught sweet Genevieve about others less fortunate and she (and the boys) are developing caring, empathetic hearts. Living your life in front of others in a way that matters and 'shines' is a great thing.
Don't be discouraged. Press on.
