Look what I found over on WolfCrochet's blog...
a book full of Chemo Caps and Shawls. No, I don't believe in coincidences! Things like this happen for a reason.
Normally I don't post in the middle of the day, (this is my lunch hour):) and I never post twice in the same day, (or week usually) but...after I found the book I was going through my emails and had a comment left from Becky who saw one of my pictures on flickr today and she left me this comment:
"I found a picture of your work on Flickr and I decided to head over to your blog. It's amazing how the Lord will put someone in your path who is going through the same thing you are. My mother has been fighting stage 4 brain cancer for about 20 months now and just went through her 3rd brain surgery. I just wanted to tell you ENJOY the time you have with your friend now, because you will cherish those memories.
My heart pours out to you, and thank goodness that we have a craft that we can escape to when we have a rough day!"
Coincidence?? I think not...God is working overtime in my life today.
Thank you all for your kind words and support. I hesitated mentioning Cindy in my blog because I don't want to be "Debbie Downer". Over the weekend I read the post and ALL (45 at the time-now it is up to 52 today) the comments over at yarnroundhook. Her post titled "The truth about blogging" caused a lot of us bloggers to stop and think. I am one of those that keep my blog all about the good stuff, my crochet, etc., all of the happy go lucky things happening in my life. I hesitate to blog about those days that life is just difficult sometimes. It really helped me to read her post and all of the comments that followed.
Why shouldn't we post about the not so great things that are just part of everyday living? None of us live in a bubble where everything is wonderful all day everyday. Personally, I am so glad that I did share what was going on with my BFF Cindy because I would have missed out on the comforting words and inspiration from each of you. Anyone that doesn't want to read about the realities of life we all have can choose not to read that post on that particular day. We should all post what is in our hearts. There is no right or wrong way to write in your blog, each of us can do whatever we want with it and I for one will post what is actually happening in my life...good or bad.
