Birthday Card - for Betsy

Yesterday was also Betsy's birthday - I work with her and am mentored a lot by her. I made a card, but the photos are not so good. Here are two images - only change is whether the flas was on or not. Neither captures the card very well.

Birthday Card - for Pam

Today my friend and Mexican train buddy, Pam, turns one year older =) No one needs to count the years anymore. I am sad because while I used to play Mexican Train with a great group of ladies from my Newcomers social club every month, I now work on game days =( Hopefully, we will be able to move game day and I can join the group once again!

Here is the card I sent to Pam:

Highly Sensitive Temperament

I came across three more traits that really resonant with me:

~I often accommodate the needs of others at the expense of my own.

~I continue to process experiences long after they are over.

~I am deeply disturbed by other's insensitivities.

I guess it it good to be getting to know myself better, but I am also very raw and vulnerable with a lot of this.

A few of the internet resources I am using:
