I am 4 years old which makes my sister 2.
I love this picture. It is one of my favorite holiday photos from when I was a wee one. Aren’t we cute? This totally captures both of our personalities.
Christmas was quite the production with lots and lots of family, food, music, and fun. We had a giant tree with loads and loads of decorations. Underneath the tree was a train and a little village scene that we were not suppose to play with but of course we totally did. My favorite place to be was under the Christmas tree, it just felt like the most magical of places. When I was real small I could squeeze all the way to the back where no one could fine me. I often fell asleep back there.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what this holiday means to me at this moment in time in the world and in my life. In so doing I’ve been remembering what it was like as a child and what I loved and you know what? Nothing has really has changed, although I would be hard pressed to get under the tree much less hide in the back. I would totally be found!!
Sophie is here and is the kitchen baking. Rabia flew in this morning and is heading out with my son and his wife and pooch ( Narayan, Candice and Siena). We will be together doing the things that are our traditions that make this day magical and loving for us. It’s the love!! Always….the love.
I know that holidays can be hard for some of us. I also find them hard. I miss those that are no longer here with me. I count myself lucky that my kids come home for the holiday and I get to spend this time with them for I know it is a great gift.
I have felt very alone at times this year so I understand how hard that can be. If you feel alone and struggling right now my heart is with you. Here is my hand please do take it. I wish all of us that felt alone could be together.
Yarn, color and knitting stitch us together. We do have each other.
Thank you for being my fiber family!!
It’s been a year and you’ve been here with me and for that I am forever grateful.
love! love! love!
I wish you love! The more love we put out in the world the more it creates and comes back.
Cast on a love circle!
