I’m almost finished crocheting the blue and gray scarf. Remembering to be thankful for the many blessings I have is sometimes hard. Health challenges mean pacing myself and prioritizing activities differently than I would have done in the past. I have a very supportive community of family, friends and church members helping me. I have had give up many activities I enjoyed doing before my illness progressed. Asking others to do tasks for me means accepting their way of doing things may be different from mine. But the blessing is I can crochet. I can knit. I can still contribute and be productive through my creations. I can spend all day knitting and crocheting if I desire. I can manage a home based craft business and be successful. Maybe my health isn’t what I want it to be. But I can still be happy most of the time. Crocheting provides the creative outlet I need.
