Day 17

"Stand tall sweet lady,

you are far stronger than you know"

My mom gave me a card sometime during my teenage years that said that on the front. I used to have it hanging above my bed. Now I have it hanging above my computer, where I spend most of my time when I am working on projects like this at home. It is something I have to remember, and I look at it often. 

Somedays the ideas don't come easy. Somedays things just don't flow right. Somedays the best you can do is walk away from it for the night, and get a fresh start (after a cup of coffee!) in the morning.

    Yes, sometimes we all have those days! Moms do give good advice sometimes, even if it isn’t what we want to hear at the time. I got a similar card from my mom in college one time when I was struggling, she wrote it in “hang on, God has a plan” I fall back on those words alot now as an adult!

    Funny how Mom’s know just when to say things and that we’ll appreciate those things even more when we’re older!
