From time to time, my yarn would get snarled. Mom would patiently and good-naturedly untangle the knots. Through her patience, I found out: "The best things in life take time." Great aspirations or works don't happen overnight. Thus, when the going is slow, have a positive attitude and with patience stay focused, working while you expectantly wait.
Once, I remember crocheting a square for the blanket that turned out all wrong. Mom unstitched some of the yarn and explained we all have times of failures and setbacks. However, she reminded, that's how we learn. She suggested that I start again. With that, I knew, "The big picture of your life is greater than one or two mistakes." Hence, start fresh today!
