I'm hoping my lack of inspiring projects and creativity is a thing of the past (for a little while at least). I've got a few little goodies in my hands that are sure to get me back to my sewing and knitting. First, I have a lovely dress form! I had been wanting one for quite a while, and had come really close to purchasing one on my own. It was hard to justify cost (how much fabric or yarn could I buy with that money instead?). Well, I put it on my birthday/Christmas list and crossed my fingers with all my might.
I got my dress form! I came as a gift from my Mom and Dad. My parents have taught me a lot about generosity and thinking of others, but it still comes as a surprise when I am the beneficiary of this generosity. So, Mom and Dad, thank you so much for the dress form - I can't wait to start using her to work out fine fitting details and become better at sewing. I appreciate everything you do to take an interest in my hobbies.

The last gift I received had no monetary value, but comes of great value to me. My hubby spent two and half hours at a church service in a foreign language! He did it just so I could spend Christmas morning visiting some very dear friends of mine. It was wonderful see some old friends, and have the support of my hubby with me.
As wonderful as my Christmas and birthday gifts are, I am most thankful for the real meaning of Christmas: Emmanuel, God with us! I am also grateful for the time with my family - I love you all.
Do you have anything wonderful to share about the holiday? I would love to hear what you have to share.
Live in this moment and love life!
