Overcoming Fear



I have sooo many fears there is not enough time or space to write them here. It would also be very boring too. I used to be deathly afraid of snakes, but in the last couple of years I have managed to meet it head on and actually can appreciate how unique a species they are now. ( I am still working on this though).
I recently got to go on vacation and zip lining in the rain forest was an optional outing for us. I really wanted to do this, until the night before it we were supposed to go. I got totally freaked out at the idea of being 150 ft in the air and one stretch was 800 ft long. OMG! I didn't sleep a wink the night before, but since my kids really wanted to do it we all acted very excited to be going and experiencing something totally foreign to us. Well I did it, although after about the 5th trip I was ready to say I was done. I should mention that there was no walking path back to the begining, and Boa Constrictors are native to the island. (So I still need to work on the snake thing). We stuck with it and I did all eleven zips and it really was exhilarating. It was a gorgeous area and I am sure I will never be able to do it again. I am so glad I was able to overcome this fear it makes me stronger to take on my next fear, I hope!

Hey Denise -
I was wondering if you can tell me how to put the pictures on the tiles? I want to make "coasters" with each of the grandchildrens pictures for mothers day. Is it hard?

No not too hard you just need to use a product called Lasertran that you buy at Dick Blick. Call April for my number and I can give you more info. I don't want to post my number here.
