for skills

"Being creative will help you enjoy life. It engenders a spirit of gratitude." - Richard G. Scott

I'll go weeks without an alteration job. And then sometimes it feels like I'm drowning in them. They seem to come in waves. I'm in the middle of one of those waves right now, trying to keep my head above water and finish all of the work I've agreed to do.

I am thankful for my sewing skills. My mom sent me to sewing classes when I was 10 years old and I haven't really stopped since. So even though I don't necessarily want to spend my day hemming pants and adjusting sleeves, and mending jeans, I am thankful for the skills to do it. There is quite a bit of satisfaction and joy to be found in the work, and I am thankful for the opportunity for it.
