I feel by knitting up prayer shawls allow me to focus on what is important now. The soft yarn called Homespun by Lion Brand gives me comfort whenever I work with it. Ever since I can remember, when I first picked up a pair of needles at the age of eight, I love becoming familiar with a pattern and then see it turn into an object of enjoyment.

This is an excellent read, poignant and demonstrates a reality that we all may need to face at some point in our lives. Tonya Thomas delivers a true to life event. It sent me back in time to when my sister and I tried to convince our parents (into their 80's) to go into an assisted living facility. Instead they opted to stay in their home, which turned out to be a nightmare for all concerned. Eventually they both needed full time nursing home care and passed on within two months of each other's deaths.
This is a definite read for anyone having to deal with this type of situation re their elderly parents. Scary thing is I'm not there yet, but it won't be that long when I am.

Well, three years later I'm still wondering how I became the owner of a too smart, too loving, too mischievous peekapoo (part poodle, part Pekingese) that has capture my heart completely.
