About: Challenges

One of the definitions of challenge is: • a task or situation that tests someone's abilities.  Hmmm yup, that defines my life about now!

So it's been over a month that I have been in this cast and boy oh boy is it challenging.  Everything is a task, even one so simple as making a cup of coffee.  My ability to have patience, and to rely on others has truly been tested.  I thank the Higher Power for my fiance who has stepped in and basically taken over the household chores, to include dr. visits for the girls, cooking, grocery shopping, laundry etc.  I am ever thankful for my girls who have had a challenging time helping me to get this or get that, Bry even makes sure my hair is "groomed" every day, Mojo makes sure I have homemade waffles when I "need" them.  I have been trudging along, thinking of the day when I will be able to "keep it moving" independently.  

Normally, the challenge in my life is finding time to craft, now it is trying to reach my ribbons on the top shelf, getting the paper trimmer across the room etc.  Well, this weekend I configured my little craft table near my bed so I could at least play with my paper, glue and scissors.  I completed this card for a challenge online.  Hope ya like!
