First and foremost…HAPPY ST. PADDY’S DAY! I hope you are wearing a bit of the green today.

Now for the secret! ….It’s funny even strange, but true! I have been really struggling here. I feel like there’s a multitude of voices shouting out to me, all agreeing I must do more. I have been feeling depressed, depleted of all energy….then something unexpected fell into my lap. Suddenly, I feel more energized, ready to fight the day’s battles. It makes me feel infused with doses of hope that leaves me eager to be the person I am meant to be. Talk about a new lease on life. A lovely gift was placed upon my lap…an unexpected gift. A Job!

Yes, I said a job! Be it small…it’s perfect. I was visiting one of my local yarn shops a few weeks ago and one conversation led to another. Before I realized it, the owner was saying ‘well, I’m looking for someone to work part-time, would you be interested?’

The rest is history. Here are some photos of the beautiful shop where I’m now employed. It’s a perfect little job to inspire and motivate me. A truly unexpected gift!

Here's a peak from the front door!

Just a few of the beautiful works of art!

Sock yarn...can it get any better than this?

Look at the fibers...the colors!

Aren't these the most adorable little 'bunny' beanies?

Look at these spring and summer colors. These are organic cottons!

Last, but not least more little beanies!
I believe that things happen for a reason! ...A true gift was placed upon my heart!
