Hello there and happy Sunday!
Shawl~ Ingwer Yarn~ Neighborhood Fiber Co.
Thanksgiving day is right around the corner guys! How exciting. I won't say much about the fact that this holiday seems to be more and more overlooked each year and that Christmas tends to be the main event. The one thing I will say is that it makes me a tad sad.
I am playing catch-up today as I feel like today was my only real day of the weekend. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit with the sister Friday night and Saturday. My lovely sister just went through gallbladder surgery and I stayed with her overnight, as one does when someone has had surgery, to ensure she did okay and wanted for nothing. Happy to report that while the first night was a bit rough for her, today she is almost full steam ahead.
While at sister's I did quite a bit of knitting (the shawl in the top pic) and also was able to weave in many ends on a blanket my sister has been crocheting. After all isn't that what sister's are for? When I got home I got the most wonderful swap package in the mail from my dear friend Heather in CT. Insert broken record here, "I am the most lucky person to have amazing friends!". If you are reading this Heather...thank you!
In honor of the fast approaching holiday I would just like to leave with a few things I am most grateful for.
- How blessed and wonderful my family is. The fact that we are all able to be there for each other at a moments notice when someone is in need.
- My friends. While I have a few brilliant friends nearby, most of my friends have been made online and thru the knitting community. I cherish each and every one of you.
- For what I have. More often than I should, I look and see things I want. But if I really look at all I have, I have more than most and all that I could ever need. I have a roof over my head, a job I love, friends that I would miss if they weren't with me, and family that I cherish.
- Knitting. While it may seem silly to add a "craft" to the list, knitting has saved me on many of bad days. It has brought more light to many already bright days. Most importantly it has brought me friends...true friends.
Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for being on my list of things I am grateful for!
Have the best day today!
