Keep Trying

"In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins...not
through strength but by perseverance."

~H. Jackson Brown

I'm trying to do something I just know I should be able to do but it's not working. I've left it alone and walked away, I've thought about it, I have returned. This is NOT going to get the best of me. I am the stream.

Life is Good!

Wise advice...I've had my share of rocks lately. That's a nice visual for perseverance!

I know you'll get done what you set your mind to, and do it beautifully. That's just what you do! :-)

You are the stream. The rock has no hope of stopping you.

It is a good thing for me to remember today also.

I hope you manage it. I had a day like this on Monday, helping my daughter make a quilt, I have never machine quilted before, was going great then it began to pucker and nothing I did would stop it. So I sent the foot home with my daughter and she was going to try it on her machine but as she is 4 hours away it means I couldn't help her finish the quilt.

YOU are the stream, NO rock will get in your way!! For me walking away, pondering the *rock* and then returning most often brings good results! Good luck YOU CAN DO IT!! Have a wonderful day, and an awesome week!
