...for an hour -- take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day -- go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month -- get married.
If you want happiness for a year -- inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime -- help someone else.
YOU all must be sooooooo happy! Thank you for helping me.
Facing all this mortality and heavy life stuff..........well, it's made me think, think, think.
First of all.........thank you to everyone who commented with your very personal thoughts, experiences and feelings about not having children. Many of you sent me private emails with your very personal experiences on this subject .......and I have to say, I was surprised to discover how many of us have made this decision for one reason or another.......and it is not an easy one...and well.........it is nice to know there are others who live with this decision and who've shared my questioning feelings etc. Thank you for being so damn open!
Secondly.........I had no idea when I started blogging that it would end up creating a sort of online support community. I feel like I have friends that I've never met! The collective "YOU" .....YOU are an amazing bunch. YOU are reliable as friends. YOU are non-judgemental. YOU listen. It is nice to reach out and get touched back. Thank you for not letting me sit in isolation or stew in my lonely thoughts. Thank you for being so open. Thank you for allowing a knitting blog to go beyond the knit and letting me lay it all out there. So to speak.
I am in Minnesota right now. Spent all morning at the doctor's with my mom. Her cancer is inoperable. We will know more next Wednesday. I can tell you that her attitude is tremendous and she is at peace with everything.
SPAIN N BUBBLE
I have to admit......I'm a sucker for any attention that Bubble gets...especially with the current state of affairs in my life....any good news seems EXTREMELY good.....so needless to say... I'm pretty knocked out that we got a photo on the cover of Popular One magazine in Spain. And even MORE knocked out that the pic is right next to BRIAN MAY of Queen!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, baby.
With complete bragging rights and a glorious glow........I present...........
With that......I bid adieu to my fellow bloggers, readers, people who live life to the fullest and take risks. give, love, create, rock and knit.
