I'm finally able to write an "I Like Thursdays" post! Today is a day we share gratitude and goodness on the internet. Be sure to check out other inspiring posts at Lee Anna's blog here.
It's been a rough couple of weeks with Mom's complications from surgery. My brother is also unwell and unable to share the burden the last few weeks but I'm grateful for the kindness of others. First off, my husband has been here and been great. He took vacation time to help with the dogs and lots of other day to day things.
My best friends were always available to talk to but waited for my call instead of inundating me with texts and calls. Even Terri, my machine quilter, helped out by delivering my quilt to my home even though it was a 45 minute drive one way. She refused to accept gas money and just did it out of the kindness of her heart. I couldn't have made it without any of them.
I like giving myself permission to breathe. This year, that means no Christmas cards, no tree, no decorations, just taking time to gather my wits again.
I am taking time to sew again. I finished and delivered the Danish Ribbons to the kids in the neighborhood yesterday.
