Thankful Thursday #9

Thankful Thursdays are all about taking the time to appreciate all the little things or big things that actually went right during the week and not focus on what went wrong!

This theme is possible because of the inspiration of another blogger, Pam at

1.  First and foremost I am thankful:  for all of you who have left me comments... I am addicted to them!

2.  I am thankful:  that my daughter is finally going into a new phase of her life as a single Mom.  She is so strong and courageous.  She has single-handedly (without any help from the deadbeat ex) taken care of her house and home all by herself.  I am proud of her and her ability.  She is the Apple of her sons life!

3.  I am thankful: that my husband still has the ability to make me laugh until I cry!  And that will be a post.

4.  I am thankful: for my youngest daughter who has such a BIG heart and gives support to all around her.

Knitting By Anne Bartlett / A Book Review

Knitting Knitting by Anne Bartlett

A very good book. It is a sad story that turns out to be a very good read and happy. Anne Bartlett weaves a story that is seamless in its exploration of healing, grace, and the search for meaning, both within oneself and in the larger community.

"Spinning, weaving, knitting, all part of the long tradition of women's work, skills that had survived even the efficiency of the industrial revolution. Why did people still do it?"

"Knitting" marks the debut of a writer whose work puts her in the company of writers such as Carol Shields, Barbara Kingsolver, and Louise Erdrich.
