Portrait Sunday

Our Snowdrops are emerging slowly from the soil, I just love them, to me they signify the new hope of Spring around the corner…

Today we have all spent time with my dad in hospital, he is doing much better, still weak but sooo much better. He will be moving to a step-down rehabilitation center tomorrow for two weeks of care and exercise, to give him back his strength and then he will return home. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers, he has come so far and still has a long way to go, but I can see that he will get there…

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday, I am finishing off knitting my Cotswold Cowl this afternoon…

PS Rachel’s lovely giveaway from her shop Little Woodlanders is still running, you can enter here.

    I think of your father – and almost envy the break in the stream of his life. Mine has had so much relentless direction for the past many months, that even with the fear and pain, I see permission to stop and treasure what he has, the permission to read a book without guilt – the absence of drive to make and produce and organize and maintain. Just for a moment, a sort of odd peace and safety, and so much love.

    Snowdrops seem like small miracles to me: how did God program them to produce such perfect little green shapes at the tips of their petals? I don’t know. I don’t know at all.

    I think I am ready to sit down and put my three page list of Very Important Things To DO aside.

    We have no autumn yet. But I’m not that ready to see and feel and float.
