There are some extraordinary folks in this world and it just so happens that many of them read here. I count myself quite lucky to know so many wonderful people and to be able to call them my friends to boot. Everyone has been so kind in offering me encouraging words during my recovery period and it has been so helpful. In that same vein, today there was a package waiting for me on my front porch and I could see from the return address that it was from Carri. immediately I snatched the package up and hurried inside to open it. Oh, how gloriously pleased I was when I saw what was inside! See, Carri is quite handy and talented in ways that I will never be and one of those is knitting. She creates beautiful things and was kind enough to make something for me:
Aren’t they pretty? All of my favorite colors are in there! Ignore the pasty leg and the hideous, cropped sweatpants. I’ve not been a fashion plate of late. I adore these socks and wanted to thank Carri for sending them to me. Gifts made by hand are always special because I know how much work goes into creating them. She also sent me a book called, Julie and Julia which I can’t wait to get started on reading. It was very thoughtful and I appreciate both gifts with my whole heart. Thank you, Carri!
Today has been a rough day for me because I went from feeling great yesterday to being completely worn out today. I’m almost too weak to get off the couch and go to the bathroom even. I did too much yesterday and am paying the price today. When the boys got up, I told them about my situation and they sprang into action:
Iain stood on a stool in front of the cabinets and Ryan brought dishes to Iain for him to put away. Then when that was done, Iain went ahead and loaded dirty dishes into the dishwasher. So sweet!
Now I have to go lie down and take a nap because I’m totally exhausted. I hope everyone else is having a wonderful day!
