My 201st post!
The end is in sight. I need seven more full squares, and eight half-squares to fill in the ends, and the baby blanket will be ready to deliver. Since there has been noplanning involved in it at all, does it count as a random act of blindness?
My visit with Linga G. yesterday was untrammelled delight! Thank you Linda! She is a woman of wit and generosity, and I have loved her for decades. Yes - almost three decades. We get together after a lapse of months or even years, and it's as if we saw one another yesterday. We laugh from the belly, with heads thrown back. We share tears. We brag and kvetch and spread out the blessings like a big down comforter. I went over to celebrate her birthday, and came away feeling as if I was the one who recieved the presents. Thank you Linda!
I am at an age when people are dying around me. Friends and family are passing, and there's no telling who will go next. Take the time, today, to sit down and write a love letter to someone - anyone - who will leave a hole in your life when they go. Tell them what it is about them that you most enjoy. Put it in writing and mail it off. This is an opportunity to say those things that you always assumed they knew and have never put into words. Keep a copy for yourself. It's a blessing for both of you.
