yarn along

I’m kniting on my Lila sleeve number two, and loving this project so much.  I can’t wait to wear it but also never want it to end! 🙂  No second sleeve syndrome over here.  I did, however, cast on for a pair of baby socks for a friend and also need to finish up another small gift item for someone else, as well.  So I’m forcing myself to set aside my lila for a few days.  Maybe.

I am crazy, crazy I know.. because I selected two books to review this month while I’m packing and moving and trying to buy a house because I simply don’t have enough to do already.  Actually, I just couldn’t resist these books!  I cannot wait to dive into this one on motherhood.  I need regular motherhood check-ups in this busy season of Long Days of Small Things.  This title grabbed me immediately and I so hope this book lives up to my expectations!  I HOPE to review it this month, so I will let you know what I think.  I did finish up The Broken Way, I tried to make it last as long as I could.  I didn’t allow myself to mark it up at all because I just wanted to savor and read and let it wash over me.  I loved it so, so very much, and will be rereading it maybe immediately.  And this time mark it up.  Please go get a copy of it!  Ann is such a gift and such an encouragement to me time and again.  And, if you notice, she also endorses the above book.

I’m linking up with Ginny’s weekly yarn along and also Nicole’s KCCO.

  1. I still haven’t had the extra money to pick up Ann’s book but the library has like a years worth of holds on one copy so I’ll be buying it soon. Her first book quite actually changed my life. This one seems like a natural follow up topic and like pretty much how I responded to the concept of Eucharisteo. Can’t wait to hear about the other book you’re reading too! Beautiful sweater!

    1. Yes.. its worth buying! You will love it. It does flow so well from her first book which also completely changed my life. I’ll let you know my thoughts on this one soon, I hope. 🙂 xo

  2. I will have to admit, the title of the book you are reading completely grabbed me. I am pretty sure I will be checking it out soon. = ). Your blog always refreshes me, with its simple beauty… I come back to it regularly and find the familiarity of your story in my own. We have different scenarios, yet much similar. My adopted children’s struggles and the health of your sweet Phoebe all remind me of the letting go that mamas all must do daily. It’s such an oxymoron… holding tight… setting free. Letting God weave our stories and being open to what He does. I love your honesty, and I’m also wishing we could meet for coffee. = ) Thank you for telling your stories. Keep on doing so. It’s truly lovely.

    1. Aww thank you for your kind words! They were an encouragement to me today. Its fun to know there are people who read along regularly and that you are able to connect with my story even with different circumstances. This mothering journey requires so much letting go! Far more than I’m comfortable with. Also.. I’m a couple of chapters into “Long Days of Small Things” and really, really think it’s going to be a good one worth buying. Some pretty paradigm shifting mediations already. Anyway, thank you for commenting!
