I just saw <http://spliit.wordpress.com/2009/03/22/make-a-feel-good-first-aid-kit/>, about creating a box to hold items specifically to ease those feelings of worthlessness and despair. It sounds like something every person could use, doesn't it?

Mine would hold pictures of my three kids, and maybe a print-out of the neatest thing I've written in my prior volunteer position. Maybe a rose petal, maybe not. A glass glob - we had a fish who would always rearrange the glass globs in the aquarium! A leaf, too bad chocolate doesn't sit so well and I would hope that I didn't need my feel-better kit very often. :P Tea might be nice, and something with a bright citrus scent. Maybe a small map, showing where I've been, and maybe one of those clunky wanna-be paperweight things from when I had hoped to be a glassblower. Two small crocheted mice, because one alone would be lonely. My crochet hook, which I can't use until I paint it with nail polish because I wore away all the chrome... and a few bits of so pretty yarn.

I could make several of these, each with different things. There are a lot of blessings in my life, even when everything seems like it's gone to hell in a handbasket being powered by a leaking nuclear outboard motor, and piloted by my worst enemy. :P Maybe I'll crochet a kit this weekend...
