I have tried a little piece with crochet thread. I purchased a fine crochet hook with a bamboo needle. I had much trouble making this little square! The threads kept wanting to slip off the needle with every stitch I attempted to make..it was a very slow piece for me to make. As you can see, the stitches are not very even. It was quite an accomplishment to even get this piece finished!
It is only a small piece, but glad I was at least able to try it out..perhaps I will get better with practice.
The house is looking really good. It looks so pretty. All of the updates my husband did is sure to please someone when they walk through the door. I am positive they will want to purchase this home. It is in a lovely neighborhood.
I have to start detaching my self now...my feelings, my thoughts...detaching myself from Florida.
The past is the past..and yes, I do have a lot of good memories, good times that will always remain in my heart. But our life in Florida will be the past now. We won't be back this way again. Our lives will be changing, the kids are older, our son leaving for the military, our daughter will be graduating school in a few short years. Time marches on. It seemed as though when the children were little time stood still, as if for a moment..but then , well, something happened.
It all changed. Time just went fast forward. I loved the years past while the children grew up, we lived in Florida, I worked at the elementary school. It was a really wonderful time. I worked with handicapped children, and children with special needs. It did something to me. It was a time I will never forget. It made me realize that there is so much more to life, to living, to giving, to loving, to experiencing, to wanting to do more for others.
They were the best years of my life. Working with the children, being in the school while my daughter was there at the same time made it even more special. I was on the same schedule as my children. I was working, but still a stay at home mom in a way. They would both come home, cookies would still be waiting for them.
Our Florida life was wonderful. In the years past. Then, we had moved to North Carolina. I missed Florida so much my heart ached. I missed it greatly and couldn't adjust. We wanted to move back, but most said it wouldn't be the same.
I knew in my heart they would probably be right, and. they. were.
We couldn't live in our old beautiful house that we poured so much love into..that the walls held so many memories in. Although I ride my bike past that house now, the tears well up every time I go past. My. heart. still. hurts. I miss that home, all the memories it holds.
Although, really, it is just a house. Silly me...
But! I am human, and I do have feelings.
Soooooo...here I am ..starting to tear up again.
I guess I am not so sure how I feel about leaving once again!
Things really aren't the same now that we have moved back.
The area is not what it used to be. Days of the past are long gone by. You really can't get back what you once had..but you can always keep beautiful memories in your heart forever.
It's time to move on I guess, God knows what is best for our little family.
I know he will watch over us.
We will be ok.
I will be ok.
I will adjust.
I have to.
Life marches on, and love never ends.
