- that I’m part of a knitting community that isn’t full of yarn snobs.
- for having made so many connections with strangers all over the world, who share kind words and thoughts that I’d never have expected.
- for a boyfriend who, despite my mental and physical illnesses and his frustrations for being so far away, sticks with me and makes real efforts to help me in whatever way he can without making me feel bad.
- that I have a friend who keeps me productive and lets me earn a bit of extra pocket money to tide me over in difficult financial times, while being fully understanding of my problems and giving me the space I need. (Seriously, how many people can say they have such a lenient and awesome boss?)
- for the craft of knitting; very few things are as satisfying as learning, creating and being proud of your creations!
- for the friends in my life who I may not talk to every day, but who are there for me when the need strikes, and who pick up conversations with me as if we’d never been apart no matter how long it’s been.
- for the friends in my life who listen to me ramble on and on every single day and never complain.
- for my family, who may not be perfect, but who are always perfectly trying. ❤
- for my fur babies for loving me unconditionally and being the best and most precious kitties I could have ever asked for.
- that I’m capable of being independent in most areas of my life, even with my disabilities.
Sometimes life seems like it works really hard against you. At those times it can help to put things you’re grateful for in a list. We’re always far more blessed by life than we realize. I have many great things to live for, even when it seems there’s nothing but pain and struggling. Life is good if we allow it to be.
