And now you are wondering, what the heck am I talking about? What is this so close to amazing?
It is a moment! A feeling you get…
When you get this close and then … you just don’t make it to the finish line.
You get this close… and the meal still doesn’t turn out the way it’s meant to.
When you get this close … and the diy project does not live up to your vision.
A sign…for the hubs!
A sign with lettering!
And with a drawing on the other side.
“I got this mom” she said!
She painted one side of the board a silvery gray color.
I had no idea she was so clever.
Now to add the rope.
Only… I couldn’t add the rope the way I had originally wanted without hiding some of the painting.
It was so close to amazing… but not quite there.
My vision had gone out to sea! No cute rope wrapped around the edges!
But you know I wasn’t going to give up after all the work my girl had put into this sign. So I did not mention it to her, but I took a bad situation and turned it around!
Using a stapler I added two round staples to the top of the sign and then tied the pretty rope right there up on top!
And so I got my sign and I got to use my rope as well.
And the hubs got a fun sign from his daughter!
A triple win!
KariAnne talks all about those moments when we get almost there to perfection but then something goes wrong. It is God’s way of letting us know that we need to slow down and re-evaluate. In our life, and even with our DIY projects.
She is supportive and reassuring, like a sister would be. And she is the worlds No. 1 cheerleader when it comes to helping us get through our own so close to amazing moments. Whether they be DIY projects or life lessons to be learned. There are plenty of those in her book as well.
I highly recommend this book and I don’t even care if you pre-order it from me on my Amazon link above or from somewhere else. Order it and you will thank me later! Oh and make sure to have tissues on hand, she is one funny lady.
And make sure to pop on over to Amazon and check out KariAnne’s book. It will be available on September 5th, but you can pre-order it now.
