I got some very helpful responses/comments (both online and offline) regarding my last post. It was just what I had hoped for and it proves that kindness and support can come from both expected and unexpected places.
In addition to that, a funny, coincidental thing happened (You might not think it's a coincidence because you're probably sure that my mother reads my blog... but, she doesn't. Weird. Right?). Anyway, as I was wrapping up a phone call with her, she told me she was going to send me a picture via MMS. "Okay," I said and hung up. I waited a few moments before I heard the familiar "ping" of an incoming message. This is the picture she sent:
And do you have any idea what that is? Well, I did. It's a "Handmade Cupcake Hat" for my daughter, Adela. And do you know who made it by hand? That's right: my amazing, wonderful, talented-to-no-end mother made it.
I immediately texted her back:
"Is that a handmade cupcake hat. And did you MAKE it?"
"Yes. I did. Why do you sound so familiar with it? Have you ever seen a handmade cupcake hat?"
"No, I never have, but I'm smart."
"Yeah, I made it. I'm knitting again. What else do you want?"
This is a very, very big deal. It would seem that in some small way, the universe is listening to me.
Thanks for all your support!
