Of Lost Friends and Overcoming


I recently hit a creative slump.

As much as I wanted to utilize my saved travel time during ECQ and catchup with long overdue creative projects, I was so depressed for weeks that I couldn’t even lift a finger to craft happily. Except for those promises I had to keep for Dana, I couldn’t do anything craftsy. I putup a strong front though in reality, I was sick. You see, I ‘lost’ a friend for a reason that is not totally clear to me and I didn’t have a chance to make amends for it. It just hit me so hard that even seeing craft posts in craft groups made my heart ache.

But I am slowly getting better.


As Unknown once said, “If someone comes into your life and has a positive impact on you, but for some reason, they can’t stay, don’t mourn for too long. Be thankful that your paths crossed and that they have somehow made you happy, even if it was just for a short while. Life is change. People really do come and go. Some come back, some don’t and that’s okay. And just because one person leaves doesn’t mean you should forget about everyone else who’s still standing by your side. Continue to appreciate what you have, and smile about the memories.”

So yesterday, on Mother’s Day, I lifted my hands in prayer and praise, and decided to let go of the emotional baggage and craft again.

And this pretty thing right here, is only 1 of 7 beauties I accomplished that evening.

You see, we may not understand all that happens in life nor can we control them; some things may even break us. But let us take comfort in the knowledge that GOD is with us. And He… makes things beautiful… in His time.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3.11
