A yarn along post

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~ Ginny at Small things

While away on vacation last week I was able to get my stockholm scarf knit up for my sons fiance. After a rocky start I was relieved that the nine hour drive there plus another knitting session the next two days I was able to check it off my list. Then on Friday I started a baby gift. I hadnt brought my knitpicks needles with me so ended up purchasing a set of bamboo straights. Yes, I was desperate.
The books I have in my reading spot are "Where will you go from here?" by Valorie Burton and "Upside" by Bradley Wright Phd. They are both review books so we will shall see how much I enjoy them. I really ignored "where will you go from here" each time it popped up on my review list from Waterbrook Multnomah, but I think it will be just what the Dr ordered considering what our family has been through the past few months. I am hoping that once I am done my daughter will read it. I think it would be a great read for her especially but I cannot make her be willing to read/hear what she might need.
She is an adult
and sometimes......
How shall I say this
we avoid what is good for us,
maybe I am just speaking of the two of us?
Or maybe you too have been in a hard place
and experienced the same thing?
lalalalala I cant hear you!!!!!!! (as I plug my ears firmly!)

I suggested that our Tuesday Morning ladies group read "One thousand gifts" by Ann Voskamp for the next session and sent a link to the leader. She was so excited about it that she decided we would start it THIS session in the Fall!
And guess who she wants to lead it......
you got it!
I said "Yes".
Shaking in my shoes,
knowing with ALL of me
God can
and DOES
use our broken selves and humility.

I remain,
Under His wings,

  2. Life sometimes throws curves at all of us....Children have a way of doing that. Hopefully, knitting takes away some of that stress.
