It has been a few weeks since we have written. It was tough to focus on anything really... with everything that has been happening in the world. Jen and I were feeling a bit overwhelmed, emotional and, at times, distraught.
One of my stress relievers (coping mechanisms) is to create a gratitude list. So I decided I would share it in this post.
In all of the noise and confusion of the last few weeks, what are we thankful for right now?
Besides the obvious - we are healthy. We have each other - the four of us and our families. We have animals to hug and watch happily munching their grass. We have a beautiful, peaceful farm - a haven. But also we are very thankful for the group of knitters, crocheters, felters and makers that surround us.
Our circle has grown and many of them were gathered in our shop for our Fall colour launch. Others dropped by during the week to talk about knitting and some popped in just to say "hi". These moments, chatting with friends new and old, were truly a respite from the crazy, swirling outside world.
We are grateful for every moment.
So our wish for all of you this week is to find moments of peace and a circle of support surrounding you. If you don't have a circle, we welcome you to ours!
