Mission Accomplished!

The final rescuer is on his way out of the San Jose Mine. The world needed to witness and experience what has taken place over the past 24 hours.

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...

There is no other word to describe the demonstration of the human spirit and the will to survive exhibited by the 33 Chilean miners. They have been trapped several thousand feet below the surface of the earth in the San Jose Mine for more than 60 days.

I have been captivated by the story since first learning of it. As I pen this post and watch the rescue live, I am filled with awe at what man is capable of overcoming when sustained by the hand of God.

Until next time...

Miss Y'all!!!

Warmth is what I felt as I read the get-well wishes sent to me by my knitting friends after my surgery. It made me smile to know that my absence had been felt. I pondered the fact that I was worthy of the investment made: a greeting card, a postage stamp, and hand-written sentiments. These acts may seem small but the thoughtfulness that they represented are not.

Community was the word that quickly came to mind. I thought about the fact that Fiber-istas are a special group of people. We come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and walks of life but we are knit together by a love for yarn (pun intended) and the great things that can be done with it.

It's been quite some time since I've been able to sit-n-stitch with The Knitterz. I hope to make it out soon. I'll have to. I need your help on my Shirley Paden project.

Until next time...
