I heard a friend say this recently and right now, I know this is true for me. I would love to pick up my clay and make a beautiful Madonna, a new St. Andrew bead, some new symbols and string a dozen more rosaries. But what I really need to do is reply to another email to say, "No, I can't fulfill your request. Here's a link to a friend or another person who makes rosaries." *sigh*
How to say no to a person handing you money to do something you love to do:
Quickly say the words as fast you can while simultaneously running in the opposite direction before you change your mind.
So now I go back to what I have been doing and what I need to continue doing (which is also very enjoyable and fun, just in a different way!)
Homeschooling, cleaning, cooking, taking care of kids, a baby and loving a husband too. I do love doing these things and I need to focus on them right now.
Thank you for your understanding!
