Considering all things, adding one Mom and one dog to the household hasn't been that tough. Trying at times.... lots of prayer, reading up on dementia and applying different things ... its a horrible disease...
Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.
While I am in this season of life, my down time focus tends to lean towards crochet.... the rhythm...the joy of seeing something become... Especially since Jeremy, Kathy and Wyatt gifted me new hooks, a crochet bag, and my own mug with crochet hook holder!
My inlaws gifted me money for Christmas..and one small thing I purchased was some merino wool... I made these mitts ( pattern faded lace mitts) with Cascade Farms Heritage Print. I could just wrap myself in this yarn and seriously feel a scarf coming on.
