hormones and crafting

Why did God have to give women raging hormones? Not to be sexist but men don't know the half of how hard it can be being a woman. This is my pre menstrual week and my mood has been kind of flat since Sunday. I hate feeling this way. I try to be positive, pray about it, and fight it but it is so all consuming. I become jaded, cynical, sloth like and unmotivated. I do know that it will pass thankfully!

Thank you Lord for great friends who understand! In the words of Tammy Wynette, " Sometimes it's hard to be a woman"!.

Thankfully we have a God who understands mood swings and depression. There are so many characters in the Bible who had a hard time in their lives. Way harder than mine is ever going to be. Job springs to mind. Abraham's Sarah longed for a child for many, many long years. Paul and his thorn. There are many more. I should be more grateful that my feelings of lowness will pass with my change in hormones again. It is not a persistent state of affairs and I am glad of that.

I have decided to include my quilting efforts on this blog. I think you guys are so wise and have offered me good advice. To set up another blog would be too much work right now and why not just use this blog more! So I am hoping that I can do a post tomorrow with the some photos of my recent quilting endeavours. They are total beginner quilts so be warned!

I then hope to begin a new quilt project and display the process step by step as I complete each part of the project. I will photograph each step and share it with you all. I am going to be tackling my first pinwheel quilt and am quite excited about it!

Take care and have a lovely day everyone!


  1. Yup...I go through the same things, Collette! I'm glad we're not alone!

  2. I, too am thankful GOD understands every detail of our lives.
    Can't wait to see your quilt.

It is always lovely to hear from my readers and I enjoy all you have to share!
