When are you going to blog?
This is a knitting blog and I just haven’t accomplished much knitting wise. I have, however, gotten three kids successfully back to school, cleaned my whole house, masses of laundry (wash, dry, fold and put away), reorganized all my pots and pans, Corningware, mixing bowls and cake pans and knit another bracelet. My MIL requested a bracelet like the one my mom knit me. I have yet another bracelet to make for Owen’s home teacher who has been with us over 3 years. I am so freaking braceleted out! So, what was I thinking when I bought this on eBay?
September 11th came and went. It didn’t hit me as hard as it has the past years. I am not sure why. Perhaps because Kevin held it together better this year than others. I don’t know. We watched the program on the children of 9-11 and I just felt so grateful that Kevin made it out alive. A friend of mine from Owen’s school is a widow now 4 years (her husband died of cancer) and her son is 6 like mine. He is lower functioning than Owen. My heart breaks for her. I have felt a deeper appreciation for all that Kevin is and what he does for me and our kids. I don’t think I could do this alone. I know they say you find strength where you didn’t know you had it. A lot of my strength comes from–this sounds sappy even to me–the love and friendship and laughter we share.
Tomorrow is the anniversary–10 years–of a pregnancy we lost. That nearly destroyed me and our marriage. Against all odds and in good times and bad…I love him. And he makes me laugh.
Wishing peaceful thoughts to all today.
