A little affirmation

Sometimes, I just like to sit and meditate on this rattan hanging.
I bought it for $2 at a thrift shop in Maine.
For some reason, it speaks to me.
I have no idea what it is supposed to be, or who made it.  But I guess that really doesn't matter, because
I love it.

I stayed at the studio for 3 hours today.  A record.  I actually got some fringe tied on some placemats that L is working on.  I feel so productive.  Ha!

My doctor said I would be weaving in 6 weeks.  That means in 3 more, I will be there.  Heart be still.

I look back at my frustration, and the craziness that ensued with me wanting to sell the studio, wanting to quit everything that I loved, and I am humbled.

Have I told you that my family rocks??  DH. My daughters.  They got me through this.
My friends.  All of you.
And L........tell me who has a friend/apprentice/partner in crime......that does what she does??  Taking the entire studio with all its responsibilities, under her wing. 6 cats. So I didn't have to worry about it at all.
M and P who came to the studio to give L some support, and help her with some big jobs.

Nope, I couldn't have been through  what I have been through in the last month without all this help.
My mother brought me tea, made me lunch.  People stopped in to visit.  People sent me cards, gifts, flowers, goodies from the bakery.  The emails.  The calls.  The encouragement. My BFF with my fave cafe lunch,  My friend A walking Roy when I couldn't.

It boggles my mind.  I didn't realize how many people cared, how many people worried.  It makes me determined to get better, to not disappoint anyone.

Every day I feel like I have made just a little progress, and it's adding up, and adding up, and adding up.
I'm coming back.

You are blessed with wonderful Angels around you. There is a reason for that. Like my Mom used to tell me when something went right..."You live your life right."
I am so glad to hear that things are progressing as they should!

You know... even though people can argue and disagree on so much, they truly rally around one another when it is needed. xox

Only 3 more weeks? That's great.

You have definitely been in my heart since I first came to your blog. Your progress makes me smile and I know it takes great patience to let your body heal, but in 3 weeks you'll be weaving--WOW! Keep going forward, we're all with you, XOXO

You attract good people. Love the wall hanging.. sort of a mandala/ dreamcatcher/medicine wheel combo.

You truly are blessed with wonderful people in your life. I'm glad you're feeling better and better each day. What a beautiful wall hanging. It reminds me of a dream catcher. It's really pretty. What a great find and amazing price!

I can hear the determination in your writings. Good for you. I keep praying for you and will continue until you are all mended.

Loomatic said...

Yay! I love your optimism. It is great to hear you are weeks away from weaving.

The internet is a wonderful thing, as without it I would never have met you and your studio and now the internet makes me feel like a cheerleader from far away.

Get better soon!

Today I had a little run-in with my psyche and right as I was about to get on the pitty pot I thought of you and I fell back into gratitude. Thanks for being my hero.
