  3. I’ve been organizing my sewing room slowly for the past few months. I never had a sewing room before, and while home schooling my kids for 25 years, and caring for an invalid family member – my sewing stuff was smashed and shuffled together simply because I had other priorities.

    Today – I reaped the benefits of my color sorted buttons. One of my son’s dress shirts was missing a button. I just grabbed the jar with the same color buttons, and voila! It took less than 10 seconds to find the perfect button, and another minute to sew it on. Sigh. . . Thank you, Jesus.
