My children's gifts of motivation

There are some things in life that stand out like beacons in the misty past.  Many of them are the thoughtful deeds of our children. 
In the late 90s, my son Shawn gave me this book.  At that time I worked at a full time job and most evenings came home late.  There was no time to craft.  I would keep on looking at this book and 10 years passed but I knew the time would come, one day, when I would begin what I like doing best. 
"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going" ~ Jim Ryun
Thank you, Shawn.
And this one's from my daughter, Simone - one of many little tokens of gratitude.
Thank you, Simone.

    2. Hi Des, I try and craft between what now seems like endless housework. So many ideas, so little time !

  2. How lovely. It is a marvellous thing to have kind and loving children. I too have been blessed with two wonderful boys.
