Wherein I search for a new path to follow before it's too late.

Friends. You meet them for coffee. You chat about your kids. You talk about the economy and Barack Obama. You share stories about your life. And then there's a break in the conversation and you find yourself sharing your personal story of despondency and confusion and you know you are not alone. Their stories become even more personal and the bonds become stronger. Friends can be wonderful as a group and even more special one on one. My friends are holding me up right now. They are treasures in my heart and I carry them with me until we meet again.
"There are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give." Leo Buscaglia, author and professor
I teach knitting and crochet at Jessica Knits in Scottsdale, AZ. I knit a lot of the store samples and continually learn new techniques. I crochet blankets for Project Linus and host a PL Knit Night the first Thursday of the month at the store.
I love reading, watching movies, and being the mom of two high school boys. My husband works at home which allows us plenty of time to volunteer for the high school marching band in which our boys participate.
