yep, that's me hiking with the boys on Sunday. Those woods look a little scary, don't they?
Anyway, back to how very lucky I am. Last night Vince (dear husband) and I were thinking about sitting down to watch FRONTLINE but I was hesitating a bit. I knew it was going to be about Healthcare in America and I just had a feeling it would be full of information I really didn't want to know. The kind of stuff that would make me fret and grit my teeth and so forth. We did it anyway and my suspicions were confirmed. Besides just dwelling on thoughts of the unthinkable though, I have also been thinking about how unbelievably lucky I am to have even this little bit of craftyness in my life at all. It suddenly feels like the biggest luxury ever. At the same time it also feels so precarious. We watched awful stories about people who will never ever be able to pay their medical bills, are completely uninsurable, and are still sick! And here I am a woman who has health insurance through her husband's union job, gets to stay home with her children, AND has the time and resources to pursue creative projects here and there.
How lucky am I? oh so lucky.
So I am going to try to stop complaining about not having enough time or money to make all the stuff I dream of making and just shut my mouth and be grateful for awhile!
Next week, however, I think I will embroider instead of watching FRONTLINE.
What are you grateful for today?
