Having the ability to stay at home with my children is one of the biggest blessings of my life. However, being forced to STAY HOME with my children, well that is another story. Lol!
My husband goes off to work every day, Monday through Friday. That I definitely do not envy. While he is gone, here I sit.
Most of my days are occupied with keeping structure for my kids. Helping them to continue their education and making sure they don’t kill each other. All the while wishing I could do more to help. Help the world, help others.
A couple of days ago now a friend of mine posted that you could make masks out of old leggings. Leggings? You mean my hoarding of leggings for myself and my daughter was finally going to pay off? I watched a YouTube tutorial and I was on my way.
No sewing involved, just a few simple cuts. Voila, you have a mask.
Yesterday morning shortly after my husband got to work he messaged me and said, “I think I’ll bring in some of those masks you made.” Well, you know that means that I made more. This morning Paul was armed with 20 brand new, washed and ready to go masks for his employees.
I had been feeling so helpless. This one thing that I could do that might help bring some comfort to just one person made my heart smile. It also meant that I slept through the night last night. 7+ hours straight for the first time in a long time.
