Like Juliann, the “last Tuesday” snuck up on me, too. So I saved this month’s update for today. and purposefully decided on just Three Things so I could join up with Carole and friends, too. Happy Thursday!
First – this visual reminder of my word* in a place where I’ll see it every day … and especially as I journal about hope, gratitude (and life). I think it fits nicely with my word from 2015 (and the continued gift of a calendar with the little ones who prompted that choice).
Second – two of the “knitting magazines” (Laine and Pom Pom) I follow online have both come out with issues that actively celebrate inclusion in a way that seemed impossible back in January. I’ve followed Pom Pom for a while, but Laine wasn’t ever that appealing. until now. and I’ve never been inspired to even buy an issue of either. until now. I know change takes time, and magazine production does too, so I’m sure they had all of this in the works well before this year. tiny seeds. I need to remember to give them time to grow.
Third – this story that I captured over the weekend … I love its action-oriented optimism
In summary, this month taught me we can find hope when we look for it … and we absolutely need to KEEP looking!
*My sweet friend Honoré has been gifting me these words for a decade (yes, Honoré – I’m sure you might be as surprised as I am to realize I now have TEN years of words living in my house. and my life. and I so very grateful that you’ve been part of every one of them. Thank you!)
