I Did it Myself!

I am a "I did it myself" kind of girl.
It was quite fun to shovel this walk to our front door.
I did it for the mailman;
though we haven't seen him in a couple days.
Still "I did it myself"!
That is a strength and a weakness all in one person, me.
It is hard for me to let others do for me
and it is hard to accept with grace.
Grace was my word some years ago
and it taught me some lessons for sure;
but there is something so freeing to me in 
being able to "do it myself".

Happy weekend, dear friends!
Go out and delight in each day.
Take pride in yourself and do it yourself,
but know when to accept with grace the help from others.

I guess I'm a 'do it myself' girl too. I feel like a responsible person when I can do things myself, but you're right there are times when we need to except help and except it graciously !

Holy cow! That's a boatload of snow!

As for the shoveling, I'm a "call Frank the neighbor" kind of girl. The back decided long ago that when the snow is heavy it's best to "let Frank do it!" So you have my great admiration!

That's a LOT of snow! I would need some help! Hope you get to rest today!

Around here, we don't have that kind of relationship with the white stuff....LOL

I could have done that a few years ago but my knees and back now say No!
Well done Marilyn! Being independent is a gift we don't appreciate enough until we start losing it!
