Yes, losing my mother last March has yet to become the new normal. I am still at the I-can't-believe-it stage.

I find comfort in prayer and often pray for the many bloggers that I read.

God bless you at this trying time.

:)

I,as well, keep the bloggers in need in my prayers. You and Laura are both there.

laurie

been thinking good thoughts about you and your family lately...

thanks for including the 'jy-raff' to lighten things up...he certainly is a character! piffle on 'turning things to gold'...the pattern is very well written...so how could i go wrong? and you know how i feel about my spinning, so...

wish you'd come in today...you missed a visit from suzie (and scott)...

oh by the way? mwahahahahahaha ;-) see you wednesday

so well written, sharon.
in the end, whether it's quilting, knitting, fishing or weaving, we do it for the same reason. connectedness. because when all is said and done we need friends to celebrate our joys and mourn our sorrows. whatever it is that brings us together, the important part is that we are together.

Well said, my friend, well said..

Kat

Sharon, well said - the changes of life can be unexpected and painful. I am so thankful for friends - both in the blogging world and out of the blogging world. Without knitting I surely would be insane. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Happy belated bloggiversary, Sharon. The giraffe is a smile-inducer. Sadly -- or maybe not? -- it's all true what you say about the New Normal.

Carla

Amen, sistah!

Shelley

What a cute little giraffe!

Your post was very well written, and expresses so much. Thanks for sharing.

So true, the "new normal." We lost my MIL in March, and the NN has long since been implemented, but we're *still* in shock over the loss of the ON.

True, too, the outpourings, if the responses to Stephanie's Knitters Without Borders call or Wendy's campaign for Heifer are any indication. Knitbloggers are an unbelievable breed in this ever-smaller world.

My sympathies to your loved ones on their losses, and much comfort as your family adjusts to your FIL's convalescence.

Lynne

Blessings to you, Sharon...even during the challanging weeks. Yarn is our lifeline, knit together with prayer.

Donna

A truly insightful post. I think that our commonality is the thing that most draws us to each other. Where we live and how we live is a source of endless fascination, but our shared lives keep us together.

Kellie

Many hugs to you!

Donna

You know, I thought crises and "life events" were few and far between, but I read something in the paper that said the average time between events people consider life-changing is two weeks. Surprising, but now I know why I've had the urge to knit a giraffe pretty frequently these days. Take care of yourself.

Larry

Thank you, Sharon, for helping all of us put things back in order and helping us to see that it's normal for life to go on.

Julia

Well, you pretty well captured it. I don't imagine the knitblogger community is any different from the others. Life is just a series of contingencies, happy accidents and course corrections. But having the community to share it with seems to make things better. If I didn't have a blog, I don't think I would have a social life at all. Happy new year!

Geri

Thanks for sharing!

Pat DeLeeuw

That was me at Rae's!! I wanted to introduce myself, but I am really shy at times ...I agree with you about the thrums-maybe someone will invite premade thrums!!!Hope to see you Tuesday night!

Janet

Sharon, I hope you feel better soon!

I was seriously remiss about coming by here and commenting on this entry. I saved it and intended to do so long before now. Your first few paragraphs sounded like my year last year. I just thought it would never end.

But like you said . . . it's the new normal for some of us.

Happy Blogiversary (belated!) and take care of yourself!
