time and giving

Energy is a hard item to get back when you have lost it for over 6 months. Some days i think i have found it but then again as soon as i start a project it has slipped away.
i know i must not hurry this recovery but i am ready to feel healthy, energetic and hungry.
i know... give it time      give it time
time is an interesting item too there is never enough and sometimes we feel like it will never end.
lately there is not enough, time has slipped by and one moment my little girl was 3 telling me stories of how the sun which she called a farkel (not sure why) was roaming around the sky and now she is a married lady.
Her good friend Eva from Italy traveled all the way here with her daughter Giulia and boyfriend Marco to be a part of  the celebration and brought me two incredible cross stitched "towels" from her and her mother, made over  70 years ago and stitched in the past few years. the towels are made on a loom in her home town.
I can see why you would want to dry yourself with it. they are so soft but i doubt i ever will.
i have it laying on the back of one of my couches.
here you can see the back of the towel and the front  so simple  so perfect
the gifts one gives can be material items or gifts of time.
they both can touch the heart.
 this material gift brought tears to my eyes.
a mother i have never met and a friend i haven't seen in over 15 years gave me a gift i will treasure always.


  1. Wow - so beautiful! I can almost feel how soft it is!


  2. Very precious gifts you received. I think you found a wonderful place for them, over the couch., for all to see. I will pray for you to have more energy. You certainly have a great attitude, you want to feel better. Yes you need to give yourself time and that's more than fine. you have a wonderful day. love Annette
