Touched By Kindness

Updated on August 28, 2012

One Word At A Time

It is early in the morning and I can hear the rain drops falling

To my surprise I have a close friend pay me a visit

Maybe she couldn't sleep or was so busy she needed a break

I think she was thinking of me and wanted to catch up

We met three years ago almost to the day

It was one that will always make me happy and bring so many memories flooding in

We would talk and share many thoughts

Both have families we care so much about

We do everything in our power to make them happy

Struggling at times to make ends meet

Never giving up and with a strong belief in God

Pressing forward and marching on through the thickest woods

When we think we can't take one more step

We turn to our own inner strength to see us through

Loving life and every day we know we will find a way

To change those things that make us sad

So many holidays have come and gone

The seasons have changed

One thing is for certain our friendship has grown

Sharing our lives and making our dreams blossom

We are far from finished but we are going places

Trading stories and sharing ideas

So one day we can both look back and say

All this hard work payed off and now we can rest

If it siiting on the beach in the sand or crocheting by hand

I feel the happiness through every bone in my body

Like a windcharm making wonderful sounds

Seeing is believing

Telling the world this is the way life should be

Finding the good and telling others how they can have fun too

Not just for a week or a month but for year after year

      I am delighted to say that my knitting is in great demand..... I can hardly believe it, i am getting some help to get the orders out quickly. Wot is your idea to help. My daughter is very motivated, but unfortunately she cannot knit...... She looks beautiful in my designs and is great at photography and computers....... I am hoping to start selling wool on line, as it is not always easy to buy things here at a reasonable price..... Slowly slowly we will build up the business. I teach knitting in schools, and i would love to write a book, helping young ones to learn to knit...... Maybe it will happen one day. I seem to have ideas going around my head forever, but i actually put them in action. i will probably bring out a book the day before i die........ My children may benefit from the sales. Be sure to buy one now..... I dont believe it was a deliberate mistake.... Tell the truth now. I wish i could crochet it is so much quicker...... but i cannot follow a pattern it is double dutch to me....... hugs Brenda

      Gypsy Rose Lee To see someone after a long time and it seems like yesterday.You begin to talk and you pick up where you left off.A kindred spirit that we can't explain.Just a feeling that doesn't disappear.One that will survive without fear.Thanx so much and may new friendships develop and old ones reconnect.Have a great day.
