Have you ever felt like Cinderella? Today was my day to be somewhat of a fairytale character. As I did laundry, made beds, cooked meals, cleaned up messes and was at every beck and call of my little ones. I felt somewhat of the ache that poor Cinderella felt. I have been a single mom again this week and its been tough. I am now waiting for my price charming to come home. Oh, the joy Cinderella felt when she was with her prince. Love is grand and it can make cleaning the dirtiest of dishes seem worth while, when you know you are giving of your time to a family you love so deeply.

As in the story of the fair Cinderella, she also had a love for sewing. Her family of mice saved the day by sewing her a gown to wear to the royal ball. So, as I took a little break for myself while running errands today, I picked up a little something that fit my fancy. It's that relaxing little book you see up there. Now, that's something that Cinderella would have loved as well. A weekend of sewing. Some read, some play golf, some watch movies, some bake...I sew, and love it!

If I could pick a fairy tale character today, it would be Sleeping Beauty! lol!
