should learn to be patient with ourselves. Recognizing our strengths and
our weaknesses, we should strive to use good judgment in all of our
choices and decisions, make good use of every opportunity, and do our
best in every task we undertake. We should not be unduly discouraged nor
in despair at any time when we are doing the best we can. Rather, we
should be satisfied with our progress even though it may come slowly at

BONUS I SPY KNIT PATTERN:
I Spy a Crocus Hat - "After the brutal winter we’ve endured, I got up out of bed this past Saturday morning – our last weekend in March – hoping that maybe, finally, we’d have a decent, spring-like weekend. I had this silly notion that, “Oh, wouldn’t it be nice, to spy a sweet little crocus peeking out at me from somewhere in the yard?” Rather, overnight, my greening yard became buried under yet another blanket of ice and snow. Fortunately, when Mother Nature disappoints, all we have to do is grab our knitting needles! It’s true - necessity really IS the mother of invention. And, boy, did I ever need to see some flowers! Hence, my new “I Spy a Crocus” hat... " - not free, but $5.00 PDF on Ravelry.
