It was just what I needed.
The kids brought their art work in and held it up for her to see. We laughed. We talked about Christmas break.
I feel better now. I sort of made my mind up this week that I wasn't going to submit to this mood I've been in lately. I have made myself get up and get out of the funk I've been in. We are working on some creative projects which always help my mood.
Be prepared for a lot of crafting in the next few weeks...
