Happiness is....

I almost lost my mom this summer. I was no where near ready. She had been living alone and falling alot. She ended up in the hospital and nearly died. She was placed in a nursing home and then assisted living. It was the HARDEST decision my family had to make. This is a picture of mom from the assisted living November newsletter. She looks like a new woman and I don't know the last time I saw her making cookies. My sister was kind enough to send me this picture and it made my day. I am still hundreds of miles away from her but sleep so much better know she is doing well.

I had a trip to the stitch shop as well today to pick up things for exchanges and my snowman thing(winged wordling)which also made me happy.

My son told me tonight that he wouldn't trade me for anybody else in the world(big praise coming for an almost 8 year old)

A client told me tonight that I really made a difference in her life and she has taken positive steps to improve things.

All in all, I am very happy tonight and pleased that I now get to go stitch!

Sounds like a really positive day, Kim. We can all use more of those, yes?

Hope your tomorrow is just as happy.

Yours in Stitches,

that is great that your mom is doing good. What a complement comming from such a youg mind. Gotta love it. I could use a positive day like you had.

Congrats on the way around. The best compliment in the world comes from the mouth of honest children. I love it when my 9 yr old says something sweet. On the opposite the other day he told me they have this number you can call (found out it was Jenny Craig) to help lose weight HAHAHA.
