What Independence Means
Having gone through over a year where I felt so reliant on circumstance, I’m happy to have gotten a feel for what independence means.
What Does Independence Mean To You?
This past U.S. holiday weekend reminded me in many ways how much I value my freedom and independence. And my family. And my ability to be back together with them (in-person). Largely, I am independent of my family. So, when we get together, I can really value my time with them. Which I did.
My sister in Massachusetts organized an amazing family celebration this past Saturday. About 50 family members and friends got together in Massachusetts. It was a celebration of my mom’s upcoming birthday where she’ll turn 90. But it was also a great opportunity for a family reunion.
We also took the trip up to Massachusetts to visit my sister and brother-in-law and niece.
It was a great four days of eating, loving and re-uniting after a less-than-pleasant year or so.
I opted to take no knitting with me, so I have nothing on the knitting front to report. Just photos from the celebration.
I hope your weekend was filled with love and joy.
I have to admit, it was nice to just drop the needles for a few days. I drove to and from Massachusetts (lot of driving). So car-knitting was out of the question.
When I got home yesterday, I did start a new project, but it’s too early to share yet. Especially if if doesn’t work out. I also need to finish the unfinished glove from my last post.
