Multitude Monday......on Wednesday: Gifts 307 - 320

Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.  
~Aldous Huxley

307.  Extra-strength pain reliever

308.  When what should be a really simple project that turns into a nightmare is finally finished and I don't have to look at it again!!!

Embroidering a monogram for a little girl onto  this little bag should be a quick & easy task.....unless, however, your machine/threads jam up while stitching ~ and, while struggling to separate the bag from the precious machine, it rips a small hole in it!!! =(  The only way to salvage it was to make an applique instead.  My children all ♥sweetly♥ said they like it better this way anyway....I now forgive them for almost making me lose my mind while trying to shop with them yesterday.
Terrible picture....I was aggravated, frustrated and completely disgusted at the time!!

309.  Tweezers ~ a quite useful little tool for many things

310.  Seam rippers

311.  Chocolate-flavored coffee creamer

312.  Text msgs. that make me laugh at just the right time

313.  Stubbornness ~ there are times when it serves me well ; )

314.  Nintendo DS ~ I sometimes regret saying yes to these devices, and other times they offer me a much needed moment's peace!

this pic is from this past winter, but the scene has been replayed recently  ;)

315.  Homemade cinnamon rolls!

316.  The willpower not to eat them all ;)

317.  My children's friends that I actually enjoy being around ;)

318.  "Mom, our house is looking so know how to make everything look good!"

319.  Walking into the kitchen after leaving dinner dishes everywhere on my way to Taekwondo, and discovering that HE took care of them ♥

320. One more day with those that I love......even if I do need #307 to help me get through it ;)

My Mustard Seed Planting verse today:

"And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: For my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me." 
~2 Corinthians 12:9

PERFECT verse for me today! Thank you for sharing it.

My girls recently got a Nintendo DS each---after saving up to buy them with their own money. Like you, I like them, and I don't!
