For some reason, I’ve found this little hoop hard. It’s been redone and examined, mulled over and pulled out.
I’m nearly there but it has been a long, drawn out process.
Why? I don’t really know. It’s funny when you have something in your head that you just find hard to recreate with thread and fabric.
But it is worth pursuing.
I remember my dad when I was young, encouraging me to give of my best. It’s better to do something well, he would repeat, as I was more content with my mediocre effort.
I still resort to this minimal effort at times, in many spheres. But working through this I was reminded. It’s better to do something well. And it is.
The process though difficult, is immensely more satisfying and rewarding than the minimal effort.
I hear myself tell my girls the same mantra, and try at the same time to speak it into my own soul. Because some things take a lifetime to learn.
Do what’s nearest and do it well.
Maybe it’s one of those lessons that will never end!!?
