Picking you up.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

I don’t know about you but this pandemic I am equating to a grief cycle. One day you are okay and the next you might be a mess. It almost feels like right before Joel (hubby) deployed to Iraq. You are trying to hold it together but some days it is just not possible.

I am not writing this for pity or empathy. I am writing this to say we are all different people in different stages. When I was in my “down in the dumps” stage a little over a month ago I had several crafters that picked me up, dusted me off, and told me I would live another day. And to you, I say thank you.

Thankfully I am in an okay mindset now. The days seem to all run together but at least things are moving. Tara (my daughter) has started college (online) and Joel is somewhat back to work (bagpiping). As for me, I am getting back to working again and living in a schedule.

I know not all of you are in the same place and I want to remind you…it is okay. Process, take your time, but keep moving forward. I am here to listen or whatever else is needed. Check in with your friends and family. Send a card. But definitely show compassion.

So love one another, be human, and most of all, be kind.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
