yarn along

IMG_2241

It’s back folks.  My knit mania that is.  I have worked on this blanket for years now.  It’s really turning into a beast.  It’s merely a scrap blanket.  I had some hats and such completed for Christmas, and that lead me to more bits to add in.  I’m loving the memories of gifts I see when I look at this blanket.  Some are from my first projects (which were quite ugly, I assure you).

On the night stand are some great reads.

The Three Musketeers I do love a good classic read.

Sacred Marriage  Not too far into this one, but I love the concepts so far.  Very deep.

Hinds Feet on High Places  I’ve already picked this preface apart on here.  I think you get that I’m into it :)

  1. I love your scrap blanket! I’m planning on starting one some time in the “near” future. That means whenever I can get to it. lol For a project like this, I think the best way to think about it is not, “when will I finish it?” but to think of it as something brainless you can knit when you’re brain dead. You know, after a typical day as a busy mom.

    I had a stepson for about six years, when he was age 13 – 19. Tragically, he was killed in a car accident when he was 19. I don’t have any other children, but I still consider myself a mom. I am so grateful that I was able to be a mom for at least the short time I was given. I’m not telling this story to get pity or sympathy, just to express my joy that I had Jerry for the time I was given. He came to us from his “biological progenitor” (I won’t give her the credit of calling her a “mom”) and we got custody of him when he was 14. She didn’t even show up for the custody hearing. He was regularly beaten and slapped around and never got quite enough to eat when he was with her. He came to us as a gang-banger wanna-be and by the time he was 19, he had learned to love and trust and that life is about giving, not taking. I thank God that he was able to learn these lessons before he died. I think God took him so early because he had served his purpose in life, and his loving side was shown to be who he truly was. I could always see his loving side, and I think that his Dad and I were able to bring it out in him with the help of God.

    Thanks for letting me tell a little bit of Jerry’s story. I wish you all the best and think you sound like a great mom for your five beautiful children. I read Josie’s story, too, and I think that kids with problems like hers are given to good moms for a reason – they need more help and I think God knew that you would provide all the love and care that she needs. Again, all the best to you and your beautiful family!

    1. Thank you for sharing. I pray your heart will mend from this tragedy. What a blessing you had that time with him. We learn so much through trials and heartache. Thanks again for being so open. God Bless You!
