As the Tree has many Branches, So Does My Life...and just for last week!
First branch, as a soccer referee. A very good week – two games on Wednesday evening (U16 & U19), one on Friday evening (under 30 coed), three games on Saturday (UI6 & U14), and one on Sunday (under 30 women). Lots of good times had by all – and yes, I can still keep up with the 19 year olds! Thank you Lord for good health!
Second Branch, I have transitioned to look to the future and all the good it will have for me. No longer am I focused on what I have had and have no longer. I am focused on taking all that I have learned from the original KnittyRef and putting it to good use in my future. I know things will be good! I know I will be blessed!
Third branch, my father celebrated his 79th birthday on the 17th. I can say that I am blessed by having both my mother and my father still alive and in good health. I also have my mother-in-law and father-in-law also still living. While my father-in-law struggles day-to-day, my mother-in-law is doing very well. Such a blessing!
Fourth branch, seven months have now passed since Di passed away on the 20th. It was another day of Celebration of her Life – I so cherish the 9 ½ years I had with her and I can only hope I may give all the same love and devotion to another sometime soon!
Fifth branch, my projects are continuing. This week should mark the first time I will be able to sleep in my own bedroom in a long time, while it will be makeshift, it will be my bedroom, and yes the construction will continue.
Sixth branch, Friends, thank you all for all your support, caring, and kindness. One special note though, I have been blessed with a very special friend who has kept me focused on the priorities of life and where life should go. Everyone needs to have at least one friend like this in their life! They allow one to have a blessed and fulfilled life because of what they give! I can only hope I will be able to give back a fraction of what I have received.
Seventh branch, the Holidays are coming and they will be days of Celebration! I am planning on continuing so many of the family traditions without regret. Yes, there will be one missing, however, there will be others added from the many friendships that have been added to my life this year.
Finally, an Eighth branch – I hope that my time will free up and I will be able to try my hand at spinning my own yarn in preparation for projects to come. One can never have too many projects on the slate!
Thank You all, my family, my neighbors, my friends, and my one very special friend…..
