Local Yarn Store Day
Tuesday is my "visit the local yarn store" day. Our LYS has moved to a bigger space and is so conducive to "sitting and knitting". What better relaxation than to knit and visit with knitters. We are a unique breed. I sometimes feel this is our version of the old quilting bees from the pioneer days. Women were more connected then. I think connecting is something we are no longer good at. We have such busy lives and sometimes it is just another obligation to get together. Women need other women. I thank God for the women in my life. My care group (church small group) ladies are the best. My friends hold me accountable. They don't coddle me. When I need it, they give me a swift kick in the rear. Believe me, I really need that quite often (right, Kathie?). And, NO, my self esteem is not hurt by this. I am a down-to-earth person. I need to be told the truth, in love. Proverbs 27:6 -- Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy. WOW? How did I get on that soap box? Call a friend and let them know how thankful you are for them and don't forget your husband. He should be your VERY best friend.
