It's a turtle Thing.

     My DH and I were in a car accident where some teenagers hit us head on. I ended up with a concussion and whiplash and then Post Traumatic Stress , which is how I met another angel in my life. My doctor sent me to a counselor and that was one of the nicest things that could have happened to me because I found a wonderful friend. Through some of our sessions we spoke of different types of personalities and I discovered that I was a "rabbit personality"(always hurrying to accomplish several different things) but my counselor is a "turtle personality " (always takes life from a slower pace) Both types have their own set of pros and cons - and by understanding their traits you learn more about how to manage your life and what works and what does not work.It is very interesting  and helpful to manage how you manage your life.
     So, I decided to make her a "Turtle " bookmarker because she reads all the time and because I hope it will add a little "whimsey" to her reading.What makes me think that is that one of my e-buddies sent me a book marker for Christmas and every time I open my book to read -when I see her book marker I think how lucky I am to have such friends.


  1. I hated to read about the car accident but it is amazing how bad things lead into things we never knew. I would love to know more about the rabbit and the turtle personalities. I think I am a rabbit too. I love the bookmarker. I have never been a reader but am starting and have finally found a book that I am enjoying so maybe I will be slowing down now. I thank you for the birthday wishes. It was a good day.

  2. That is just lovely. I think I'm a rabbit too!
