Accomplishment

I have had a very stressful week...well more than a week and there were times when I needed a real break and this has been my escape. This is the first real complete set I have knitted and it helped me get through some tough days to focus on something positive. It just needs some cute buttons and it will be complete. I am feeling very accomplished! It does not belong to Helen's Charlie doll....not sure who will be needing a warm cuddly set for their baby yet....

Bliss....


I hung up my referee hat yesterday. I never realized what an absolute delight it would be when three little ones went off to school, leaving me with just one precious four year old for such a short time before she will join the others in the education system. It has been such a delight to spend these hours with my daughter getting a true sense of her incredible desire to help me. She is incredibly funny and clever.....she NEVER stops talking and I love to just listen to her. I am amazed at what we were able to accomplish yesterday without the distractions of another child, and the other three enjoyed those benefits when they returned home from school. I think I am going to enjoy this year!

The Power of Giving

In my life I have been blessed with so much that I feel compelled to give. Especially in times of need, where even I have but little. Since I tend to hold on to things FAR longer than I should I just happen to have a few items that others are in desperate need of....and though I know that I could have traded those things for things that I am in need of, but, I know that those that are really in need probably can't even afford a trade. I know that when we chose to bless the lives of others, we in turn are also blessed, and this was made tangible when I stumbled upon someone else who was giving away for free the very items I am in need of! Thank you for your giving hearts and kind deeds, they will always come back to you, just when you need them....
