to motivate

On a terrible day, when the kids don't behave and take the pencils you just bought with your own money and break them and throw them across the room and fail the test you spent two weeks preparing them for and you come home with a terrible migraine and all you really want to do is crawl up in a ball and cry, it's so nice to get a picture like this to motivate you to suck it up and do something else.

This little guy got one of the quilts we worked on.  Some kids cut out the strips several months ago.  One of the ladies in the group sewed the quilt top together, I did the quilting and finally a fourth person put the binding on.  The quilt was passed on to the little guy in the picture to help him as he gets treatment for organ transplant rejection.

I don't often get to see who gets the quilts we work together to make, but pictures like this really make me want to get busy and work harder.  Takes my mind off my own troubles and makes me realize that a few broken pencils isn't the end of the world.

I am glad to say that tomorrow is Friday.
