This Wednesday was a full day.
My quilting friend came for tea and lunch.
Mr. Husband goes into NYC tomorrow and prepared for that.
We worked on the binding for my godson's quilt - I hope to finish this soon!
I got a lovely belated Christmas gift (belated because we missed
Christmas this year) of all the things I love:
Christmas ornament, tea, chocolate and a nice soap!
It was a real bright spot in the day today.
I am still fighting a sense of restlessness ~ I think in part
because we have been convalescing so long.
I was really tired today, though I managed to do many things,
and I just want to get back to having more energy.
But I think also that the end of January is often hard.
I remember years ago in Ottawa, the snow, the muddy snow melting in
my apartment hallway, the sense of dragging and discouragement...
But I am seeking thankfulness and God's mercy.
I was able to light the main lampadas today,
and listened to the paraklesis to the Mother of God before
my friend came over;
I was able to get all the dishes washed;
we enjoyed mint and rose tea, a tulsi tea, lemon water,
lovely food for lunch and dinner,
and some nice dark chocolate.
A friend is coming over for tea tomorrow morning DV
and I am looking forward to using the new tea I was given
and a sweetbread from my Grandma that is waiting
to be enjoyed in the freezer.
I hope to finish my godson's quilt and start on another
I have special chocolates and tea waiting,
beautiful new Christmas ornaments
and friends who send gifts of caring love.
God is good and I am seeking to be thankful for
the many many blessings I have in my life!
