And I Could Not Ask for More...

I have been feeling oddly content and grateful lately. Oddly, you ask? It seems like there has always been some little thing that I am seeking out or wishing for, but for some time now I have not felt that way. I look around at the people who surround me and I realize how truly blessed I am. A friend at work is dealing with some serious health issues, another friend's daughter was in a serious car accident, another friend accidentally shot himself with his new pistol (he only sustained a flesh wound-he is so lucky!). This feeling is almost too good to be true...like "okay Universe, what are you going to bring me...when's the shoe gonna drop?" But yet, I feel at peace.  I have lots of fabric and great machines to work with. My job allows me time to pursue my passions and my partner is so supportive. The only thing that I could possibly wish for is that the kids were closer, but they are living their life and it is good, so I am alright with that too! Feeling very zen at the moment.  As for sewing, I have been tracking what I sew this month and it's been a productive month. I used to look at other people's stats and think "Wow, how do they make so many things?", but when I started tracking it I realized that I do pretty well myself! Sara has requested some lovie blankets for Colt now that he is in daycare, so I have a new mission.  I will make him some nice taggie blankets and toys with his name embroidered on them. That's what Grandma's do (at least this Grandma).

Wow, you sound very lucky, I hope your friends have all recovered from their bad luck!!
My sister loved her taggie blanket when she was little, they're such a good idea! :)

Yes - life is good, isn't it? Glad you are seeing and appreciating the positive. I'm doing my best to do that too. g

The sermon at church today was about being BLESSED! I have to remind myself about all the blessings I have been given. Healthy children and grands are definitely blessings. I'm with you, though, I wish they were closer, but they are happy!
