Thankfulness

I started getting sick on Wednesday and yesterday I felt pretty yucky...sore throat, upset stomach, achy-ness, just yucky.  This morning I am thankful to be feeling better.  Not 100% but better, much better.

I am also thankful to be enjoying knitting, truly enjoying it!  I had to give up crocheting because of the stress on my aging wrists but I loved crocheting!   I thought knitting would be easier on them and it is but I loved crocheting!  Even though I learned to do both knitting and crocheting as a child, it took me a while to really learn to enjoy knitting and not think about how much I loved crocheting.  But I think I am there.  Knitting a baby blanket for my new great niece helped me turn the corner into really loving knitting!

Finally, I am thankful for God's sovereignty in all situations.  What a comfort that is when we face difficulties in life!  I can rest in Him...and I do.

I'm knitter who is trying to learn crochet. I somtimes get confused as to which hole to put the hook, but I'm learning.
