Beyond Buttons

There's an old Gnomish saying that goes something like this - "May your gnest be warm, may your loved ones be cozy and may you move beyond the buttons of your life." Beautiful, don't you think? True, it may make gno sense to you and me, but here's how it was explained to me. The saying "making buttons" was introduced to the Gnomish culture some seasons back by a wise elder. It was her way of saying that she's worried or a little stressed about something. While gnomes do gnot love to worry, they love the phrase. It reminds them of taking something less than happy and creating something positive from it. This little soul is a wonderful example! Just look at the way she turns to her crafting if she is feeling even a tiny bit worried or stressed. Making something beautiful always brings her joy. You could say it helps her get beyond her "buttons." What an inspiration to us all!
