Words for each of us who create and relate

–Whether we are poets or parents or teachers or artists or gardeners, we must start where we are and use what we have. In the process of creation and relationship, what seems mundane and trivial may show itself to be holy, precious, part of a pattern

-Luci Shaw–

I love this quote…because I don’t believe gifts of time, talent and empathy are ever wasted. I DO believe that within each of us resides an artist…whether in paints, threads, flowers or knowing when a caring gesture is most needed, then following through.

We all have a starting place and we all have something to share.

But why share? Because beauty, however it is expressed in community, is a thread that binds us together and gives hope.

I consider it an honor to call many of you friends…and your gifts of beauty, time and care are blessings to me each day of my life. Thank you for sharing with me!

It’s been a very busy and unfotunately non-stitching week, but I will post an update to ‘the neightborhood’ after my evening’s work tonight. I also have a new book to post for Recommended Reading.

But in the meanwhile, I hope every one of you has had a wonderful weekend filled with those things that are precious to you.

Blessings,

Julie
