Does this have to have a title? I can't think of one. This is a photo of a small collection of teacups I have. It started years ago when I was at an estate sale and I saw the prettiest tea cup. (That one 2nd up from the right). Then I found another one at another sale. By the time I had bought four or so , over the course of a couple of months, I realized they were all made by Aynsley China in England. So I decided thats all I would buy. (with the rare exception twice of Royal Albert because it was my Grandma's favorite).
I haven't been very bloggy lately. Long story short, someone extremely important to us will not be with us much longer. I still feel sort of speechless at the very thought of it. Like it is the most absurd thing I have heard. I am still really navigating my way through all of these painful layers. It feels weird to come on here and start talking about my knitting when I feel like my whole heart is a huge wet sponge. And the sponge is so full of wetness that it is just dripping all over. Does that even make sense? Well, sense or not, its how I feel. I guess the good thing about talking about my knitting is that it reminds me that its o.k. to not be completly eaten up by all of this. And truth be told, thank God for my knitting and my sewing because it is a wonderful distraction. One day at a time, right?
I guess times like these are also great reminders of the greatness in our lives as well. And I am really really really thankful that our lives are full and abundant and wonderful. But it also reminds you that really, the people you love are about it. The most important. I will be back soon , talking about my knitting. Goodness knows I have been knitting a lot.

It's one moment at a time - I lost my mom 4 months ago and moments ares still all I can manage - days are too overwhelming. Distractions are just that and they are useful. Sometimes I wonder about being "distracted" as it seems so unfair that life goes on without the ones we love - like I shouldn't be feeling "normal" ever.

Like I said... moments.

My prayers are with you!

So sorry to hear that you are going through such a difficult time. Your spionge metaphor really struck me -- I've been there and I know exactly how you feel.

Gee I was wondering if things were okay...I see they are not.

Thank you for a healing here.
I read your words : It is okay to not be completely eaten up by this.

I can't tell you how it struck me.

I will never be able to forget those words now.

Thank you. Thru sharing about your sorrow you have healed someone and given me a tool to help get thru some things here.

I look forward to your entries....whatever they are.

I suppose you don't have any doubts that I absolutely loved this picture though. What a beautiful collection. Girl after Me Own Heart !

Thinking of you. - S.

There are times when comfort is found in the things that seem simple and common. Knitting and talking with friends bring are two of those things.

May you be blessed with peace and find joy in simple things.
