I'm having trouble getting started. Trying to figure out what to say. Here's why, my husband is in the hospital. He's doing much better, and I expect that he'll be able to come home in a few more days. I started to write this big description of what had happened and how it's effecting me, but that's not what I want to do. Then I started writing about appreciating life and loving your family, but that's not what I want to say either. Those things are important, but what I really want to tell you is this:
I've been trying to stay busy to keep the worrying at bay. I wanted a small project that I could finish in one afternoon. I was flipping through this issue of Crochet Today! and I found inspiration.
So I grabbed my supplies...
and following the step by step instructions on page 83 - 84, I created a collection of parts. I don't have much experience making things like this, but I threaded my needle and attached them one by one.
When I was all done there was a little red bird in the world that hadn't existed earlier in the day. That makes me happy, and it kept me busy.
I had to go to the library this afternoon and empty the book drop so the staff that open on Monday don't have to spend their morning checking in books. We just started closing on Saturday's and our patrons are still getting used to the idea. I stopped for a moment to appreciate the lovely flowers that are blooming in our garden.
I brought along my little red bird because I thought it might be nice to take his picture outside. The sun was so bright, but he seems to be enjoying himself, and he's so light that he can perch just about anywhere!
We were having so much fun that I decided to let my new Chubby Sheep spend a little time grazing.
It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. If it weren't for my ability to loose myself in my crochet I would have spent the day worrying about John. And worrying isn't going to make him get better any faster. So I guess what I really wanted to say was this: The only thing in this whole world that you have any control over is how you respond to things. And when something happens that knocks you for a loop, you can choose to worry and fret and be anxious. Or you can choose to stay calm, to trust in your higher power, and find yourself some yarn.
Until next time friends,
