Despite Four-Eyes, Fatso, and some that I cannot repeat in a family-friendly blog post, I have made it now into my forty-third year, pretty much unscathed. Sure, I have been in short-term therapy a couple times (truthfully, I can't think of anyone who would not benefit from a little therapy as an adult), but I have learned who I am, and I like me. It's a good place to be.
I also know that this life isn't all about me. This blog is generally about me, and my knitting, but this life is about so much more than just me. If you have known me for much time at all, you know that my higher priority is living right and loving life while I am here. Living right is often about other people, and it's pretty hard sometimes, but it's so much more rewarding than always doing just what I want to do. As a matter of fact, the best advice I ever received, when I was feeling really low, was to go do something for someone else (which seemed pretty counter-productive when I was feeling so drained. . .), and it works! I recommend it to anyone and to everyone. Just get outta your comfort zone a little and help someone else find hope. . .it's out there, just waiting to be found, I promise.
So there you have it. It's not about me all of the time. It's not about me even most of the time. . .sometimes it feels like it's not ever about me at all. However, this post is about I.
1. I, as in me, as in I have finished some knitting, and I would like to show you! Here is the Supernatural Baby Sweater and Hat that I finished this week. They are washed and laying flat to dry, even as I post, and they will be gifted at church tomorrow (hopefully, if my good friends with the new baby are there!)!
2. This post is about I, as in I-cord, as in miles and miles of I-cord for Christmas Project #1, now finished, that I can't show you - Sorry! I have also started Christmas Project #3, and I am well on my way with Project #2. . .I promise there will be pictures here after the exchange! For now, if you are on Ravelry, check out the links!3. This post is about I, as in the letter I, as in I is for Italian yarn that my Aunt sent to me from Italy while she was there visiting my cousin, her 3rd child, in the Army and stationed with his family in Italy! It's a tough job, but I guess somebody's gotta do it! lol
. . .OH! I do have one last "I". . .
4. I do! Or, rather, she does. . .or she will, when the time comes!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you will Knit in Good Health this week!
