I have recently taken this to heart and have begun to put this quote into action. It has become quite fun and challenging to practice just making do.

A few days ago I was contacted by Cameron Von St. James asking me if I would be interested in helping him share information about mesothelioma.
After reading how this cancer has personally touched his families life, I knew it was a story others should read.

Thank you friends.

Or that I for some unknown reason just wanted to give there company a bad name?
Now this is where I'm going to shorten the story.
Before I went I called ahead and talked to a FEMALE Dept. Manager who was the only kind, professional, and helpful person I had spoken to in this store.
I believe to this day that she is the only reason that my situation was FINALLY resolved.
We safely made it to the store. The technician who was supposed to be there to look at my laptop wasn't, so I ended up leaving it again.
This was Dec.13th.
NOW IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE READ THIS.
IT IS THE CRUX OF THE STORY!!
On the eve of Dec.24th the local delivery lady knocked on my door and handed me the box containing the long awaited laptop.
It had been in the back of the cold truck so Tim suggested that I should let it warm before turning it on.
I don't think I can even begin to describe to you the level of emotions that I was experiencing when the time came to push that power button, ladies.
It. Was. Christmas Eve. After. All.
If I turned it on and they still hadn't managed to fix it I knew I would most likely be filled with some very un-nice thoughts!
I almost didn't bother......
But, with bated breath I bravely pushed the power button.
And this is what is the miracle of it all.....
~EVERYTHING WAS RESTORED~
The whole year and a half of files, photos, etc. that they said the THOUSAND DOLLAR EXPERTS could not restore was all there again in it's original state!
I don't know how this happened....
I know it had to be done at the local level.
But to me it was truly a Christmas miracle.
I now have all the photos of my children and grandchildren restored!
My youngest sons wedding photos restored!
Our last trip to the Yukon, also, restored!
I could just go on and on.....
I don't know why I had to go through this two month ordeal of frustration and all the headache that came with it; especially trying to maintain my blog on Tim's out-dated computer this whole time!
It has really given me cause to stop and consider God's purpose for it all as I move forward into the new year.
I feel like I was living Genesis 50:20
As for you, you want evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result.....
Now I just wonder what this result will be?
I only hope and pray that I can somehow use this crazy thing called the Internet to bring glory to our Saviour!

My ideas and new pins that I want to share that represent the kind of organised spaces that I'm dreaming of creating for my home.
They are not necessarily the colours or fabric choices I have in mind, although they are beautiful.
The tip here is to use what you already have, which is what I am concentrating on as I begin this de-cluttering and organising project.
