Friday With More Perspective
You cannot see the wood for the trees. — John Heywood
This week brought increased worry for both the rapidly increasing numbers of the sick as well as all those who are caring for them. The stories don’t sound like something from a first-world country, but rather they sound like the horror stories from a war zone or a third-world country that you might vaguely notice in the news.
I read this post yesterday and it really made a huge impact on me. Gratitude + Perspective is my new focus. Less complaining. Less rose-colored glasses views. Less meaningless lists. Less foolishly looking back at unimportant things with misplaced longing.
But, it’s not all less…because there is so much more! More heartfelt conversations with loved ones. More prayers for the sick and those caring for them. More gratitude that I have a home to shelter in and that I can easily communicate with my children. More gratitude that my library is serving the community mightily from a distance. More gratitude that I have no lack of projects to work on. More gratitude that I have an abundance of food. And, finally… more gratitude in just staying home!
Thank you, Carolyn for helping me adjust my perspective!
I do have some “lighter” things to share… things to, you know, STAY HOME and do!
Have you wanted to learn to crochet? There’s a CAL for that! Thank you, Casapinka!
How about knitting a bit of Wool Week? The hat pattern is out today!
I don’t know how this pattern appeared on my radar, but it would be the perfect spring shawl!
Then there was this from Lori Versaci. Gorgeous, but and the color combinations in the test knits are what really caught my eye!
That is all I have for this week. Again my mantra… stay home, wash your hands, and stay well!
