Yesterday my oldest child ran out of underwear. We were stuck for a moment, my husband and I, wondering what to do fast. Believe it or not sewing a panty was the best solution. It was also my husband’s idea. He helped me trace and cut the material. I started to thread my sewing machine and 20 minutes later my girl had undies. My family went on with our day.
I smiled at my man. I smiled at my girls. I was happy that my husband bought me this sewing machine. He gave it to me during quarantine. Sewing machines were extremely hard to get at one point. I got so discouraged with my failed search that I let it go. I thought to myself this wasn’t the time for that. My husband came through and surprised me. He reminded me that he said he would get the machine for me. I was stuck on things happening now and in the way that I wanted them to. I forgot that I have a loving, giving human in my life that listens to my wants and needs.
I shared a fun moment with my family yesterday. I tickled myself trying something new to me. Sewing is a skill I chose to learn for life. Well I got to reap the benefits of having my machine when I made my girl’s underwear. That was an Ausome moment in my life. By the way, the underwear was messy, but I was proud.
