Late, Late and Late
I am always late. As hard as I try, my timing is always off. Always has been. Maybe I need to wear a watch. Ah, who am I kidding that doesn't help either. With the hard time I give myself about being late and the promises to be more prepared for the next thing, I am late for something else. Funny thing is, I was a Girl Scout, and the motto is to 'Be Prepared'. What happened to my training? Perhaps my badges need to be revoked.
My Grandmother's sister sends a birthday card to me every year and it always arrives the day of my birthday. She's works miracles or something or she is the polar opposite of me! I think about something that is coming up, be it a wedding, birthday, celebration of some sort for someone I know WAY ahead of time. While letting the thoughts of what I want do for them marinate, they get lost. I then find myself in the last minute trying to create this MASSIVE project I have created in my mind. If it is a card, the inside is blank and I write a little personal note to the recipient.
I want each card, gift, what have you to be EXACTLY that person. Their personality, our relationship, or a funny joke to make the perfect piece. Even if I started in the moment I thought about it, I wouldn't have enough time.
Or if all else fails, better late than never as my Mom always says!
