today i am thankful for those who love quickly and generously. for those who understand life's brevity and give of themselves to its joys, sorrows, and the happiness of others while they can.

i am certainly the beneficiary of many people close to me living this way. this is a remarkable thing. dear ones, thank you for what you do.

this bag was an unexpected gift to me and a reminder of how lucky i am to have the friends and family that i have. trust that in it i'll carry the usual: yarn, needles, books, pens, journals, a newly acquired travel watercolor set, perhaps a camera. its ample size will also accommodate my heart's overflow and remind me of that which i have to share with others in all of life's adventures.

thanks to two and fifty.
