Gratitude: Something Old
This picture is from 1984. I put it back on display about three years ago, and when I ripped all my photos down in a fit of…..(I can’t even describe my emotional state that night in words) this was the only one that came back. I still know the young man in it, though neither of us look much like we did back when.
I keep this particular photo up to remind me that
1)people are precious, and we need to be careful with them.
2)sometimes things happen and it’s nobody’s fault, it’s just a set of events that occur, mostly unrelated and yet coalescing into a consequence no one saw coming or even meant.
3) sometimes you get back a thing you lost.
4) I used to look like Linda Carter (hey, not all my thoughts are serious!).
Todayâ€™s projects: Make a mending kit which will begin with the stuff in this basket. Do some sorting work on that pile beside the basket. Itâ€™s mostly scrappable stuff.
The finished mending basket:
The scrapping shelf. Supplies on the right, scrappables on the left.
