I am heading out soon with yarn, knit samples and a yarn tasting on my way to Stash in Corvalis for a meet and greet and to chat with all the lovely knitters about yarn, color, knitting and supporting our local yarn shops.
If you are in the area I would LOVE to see you! Bring a little show and tell with you! I will be there from 12:00 to 4:00
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day which can be hard for some of us. I lost my mom a few years ago which honestly was harder than I thought it would. My mom and I had a difficult relationship. Still…she’s my mom which is a powerful thing.
On this day I celebrate the essence of mothering in all of us. I feel the void and grief because my own mother has donned her wings. I send out compassion and love to all of my friends and loved ones who have also lost their mothers which makes this day so very hard. I send so much love and peace to all of us displaced and motherless children, maybe we can mother each other a little bit more on this day!
I also bask in the light and love of the four glorious souls ( Narayan, Rabia, Sophie and Candace) that call me mom. There is nothing that I have loved more in my life than being their mom. (Oh geez… I made my self cry.)
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Okay my dear, dear knitting friends.
I need to shower and get my act together.
