Would you believe that a stay at home mom with a sweet 1 year old and a fantastic 2 year old can get stressed sometimes? It's true. Sometimes when Monkey had pottied in his pants for the fifth time in an hour, or climbed the cabinet to take food out of the cupboard... or when Crackers won't stop crying and I just don't know why... I feel frustrated.
One thing that we worked on a lot when we were foster parents was helping everyone find a way to "escape" when they were frustrated (yes, us included). For the last week and a half, or so, I have been using the Comfort Cross to help me escape when I need it. I kept it on the table, by my sewing machine, and when the kids were driving me absolutely crazy, I spent some time focusing on the cross while I regained perspective (and a sense of calm). It's amazing to me, how a simple carved cross, can help me transform my mood.
Comfort Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have been carving crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community. The Comfort Cross is designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children's fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.

Not only are Comfort Crosses beautifully made, and great for sharing with others, they are an inexpensive gift. Easter is coming, why not buy one for someone you love for Easter?
