After giving the Spring Forward socks to my sister-in-law on her birthday, October 2nd, she died a week later from lung cancer. She left us much, much sooner than we believed she would. That’s the reason I haven’t been writing, as it’s been a sad two weeks. Today I told my niece she could have the socks as well as the feather and fan scarf I had knitted for her mother (was waiting for Christmas to give them to her) with her daddy’s approval. When it was apparent she wouldn’t make it to Christmas, I gave her the scarf along with the socks.
Don’t take family and friends for granted. They are priceless gifts from God.
