A few weeks ago before we  moved from Oregon I made
a Halloween Sign {using one of my vinyl stencils}
 that I found just today unpacking some of the last boxes…
 
 
This is what the bottom of the sign says…
 
 
I never thought while I was making it that it would come back to me in such an appropriate time…
So here are some of my thoughts….
 
If you are losing your mind…
Don’t panic!
 
If your brain is not BIG enough to figure out WordPress…
DON’T Panic!
If you don’t REMEMBER what you did with your car keys
 and your neighbor {thank you Heidi} has to take the kids to school for you…
PLEASE DON’T PANIC!
 
 
If you are hungry right now and the Brownies have come alive…
screaming at you : PLEASE eat me!
 
DON’T PANIC!
 
 
 
If those brownies are the same kind that you ate yesterday for lunch…
Please try to forgive and forget…
and DON’T PANIC!
If you miss Barbecue Ribs but you still can’t see your own ribs after weeks of tribulation
and great SACRIFICE…
Please, please, PLEASE
Don’t Panic!
 
 
If your feet are too tired…
If you  feel that you can’t walk anymore…
that the path is too narrow or perhaps the way too long…
Trust me, keep walking love , don’t give up, things will get better… you’ll see.
DON’T PANIC!
 
 
 
Now it is going to get personal…
If you really feel the need to buy new shoes but your husband is  really trying to convince you that there is NOT a place to put them…
Please pretend you are listening to him and after go shopping…
Don’t PANIC!
 
 If your toes are looking at you and silently are asking for a pedicure,
look right back at them, softly tell them that Fall is almost here,
that sandal season is almost over, and then whisper…
“Little toes of mine PLEASE don’t panic!
 
 
If you don’t have the arms of Inspector Gadget
and therefore sometimes somethings are OUT of your reach…
Don’t PANIC!
 
 
If you need to be the child instead of the mom and hold someone else’s hand…
for reassurance, comfort and guidance….
Don’t PANIC!
If those hands of yours don’t  build the next great invention but they change diapers every day…
If they never touch Paris but they touch lives,
If they are not the most  coordinated hands but can hold a book just fine in front of a child…
Don’t PANIC!
 
 
So…if you feel you need help
because somehow your own little world is not perfect today,
and perhaps small things are falling apart…
Look at my skinny guy here, find joy in the journey,
Have FUN Sweet Thing!
 But please… Please… PLEASE
DON’T PANIC!
 
 
Now if you start missing body parts
perhaps you should….
NOT! What the heck!
 
 
Love you Guys!
 
Have an EXTRAORDINARY PANIC FREE LONG Weekend!
