That's because you truly care about these people and always want to be there for them. I have always been a good listener but sometimes I can get stressed because of it, (usually when I am already stressed out over something else) because I sometimes try to offer solutions to their problems.
But, you can make the decision to relax and solve this problem, by being more SUPPORTIVE instead of trying to SOLVE their problems. By doing this you can be flying high knowing you can still be a good listener and letting your friend or family member know you care by offering supportive words. Just tell them, they can do it, anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

After seeing these here, I probably should have used a red background color to make them stand out a little more. This scan job does not do them justice. They are much prettier in person. Check out the stamps, 1 1/2 cents in 1941 and still 1 1/2 cents in 1943 to mail a letter.
If anyone has any good ideas on how to use these, I would love to hear from you.

I never thought I had "A fear" of anything but spiders until I saw the next disturbing image. I actually feel scared when I look at this. I was wondering if there was a phobia name for "the fear of upside-down Christmas trees" but couldn't find anything. If anyone knows, let me know.

My next project, (to resume sometime after X-mas) which has already been started but will take a long time to complete, is an afghan from granny squares. I have never made anything from granny squares so wish me luck. I think the greatest challenge for this project is---JUST TO FINISH. Hopefully I can complete this sometime next year. I saw the original idea in a Country Living magazine. There was a picture of a lady carrying a similar colored afghan. After careful observation I decided it was granny squares and proceeded to Hobby Lobby for the yarn. I will keep you posted on my progress.
