Woops! My shadow is in this one........this little necklace purse made from wool will come with the box of applique pins and the package of embroidery needles. When wearing this you will be able to tuck some necessaries in it such as a little sewing scissors, thimble and thread.......or a room key when staying at a hotel....you decide.
A group of graduates well established in their careers were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor now retired. During their visit the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his quests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups....porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.
When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said, "Notice that all the nice looking expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you're drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases just hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups.....and then you began eyeing each others cups.
Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job, the money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have does not define you nor the quality of the life you have. Sometimes by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything they have. Live Simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your hor chocolate".
