One Word Wednesday #4 “Thread”

This week’s word is THREAD.

As many of you may know, I make crochet items for sale on Etsy. I have been doing this since the beginning of Etsy with over 4,000 items sold. My focus is on Custom Handmade Crochet Hats.

This week marked the return of my Handmade Crochet Flowers. I had stopped selling them when my daughter was first born, as I didn’t have time for both the hats and the flowers. A previous customer of mine asked if I could make a few for her daughter and I couldn’t say no to her.

After finishing the order, I was struck with how much I miss making crochet flowers. It also gave me the chance to look through some of my thread.

In thinking about thread, I am always struck by how something so simple can make such beautiful things. You start with a basic spool of thread and end up with something new.

In the same way our ideas are also like thread. They often start so simple, but as we use and share them, they take on a whole new form.

This is why it is so vital to always be learning new things. I always encourage my kids to never stop growing and expanding their knowledge.

Like thread, ideas get lost without use. Their purpose is to be made into something.

What wonderful things will your ideas produce today?

One Word Wednesday #3 “Onward”

This week’s word is ONWARD.

The funny thing about life is that until your time is up the clock continues to tick.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve had a good day or bad, what you worry about or fear, or what you hope and dream, the seconds turn into minutes, and the minutes into hours.

There is a liberation in realizing this.

If the clock is going to continue to move onward, why shouldn’t we

Sure there are consequences for our actions and many things we can’t control. We all have burdens and things we wish were different.

THE CLOCK DOESN’T CARE.

We have to find a way to move on and live in this moment. We can’t dwell on things, hold grudges, and let anything rob us of time.

I am reminded of a great quote by Charles Swindoll…

Time

Thank you for taking your valuable time to read this article. The clock doesn’t care, but I do.

Make time to smile about something and smile.

One Word Wednesday #2 “Courage”

Courage

This week’s word is COURAGE.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to touch on the inspiration that many women have shown in their fight with cancer. People can describe someone who is sick as “courageous” just for being sick.

I see courage in the things that amazing people do while they are battling sickness. From supporting a family while ill, to charity work, to being a good friend, continuing to make a difference while ill is courageous.

The most valuable resource we have is time and often those most sick give that.

It is easy to acknowledge the generosity of someone who has money when they give it to charity. But it is more valuable and courageous when someone, who doesn’t have much time left, spares what they have to help others.

For all those who we have lost to cancer, I’m in awe of the many examples of courage that I have seen. Their impact will be felt for generations.

One Word Wednesday #1 “Family”

FAMILY DEFINED

Every Wednesday I will write about ONE word and what that word means to me.

This week’s word is FAMILY.

Family is a word that should be simple to define but ends up a complicated matter for most people.

We easily consider relatives as “Family”. We often consider close friends to be “Family” and others view those of similar faith as “Family” as well.

I expand that definition to include my loyal readers. I love the emails I get and the feedback about the things I write.

“Family” doesn’t have to be blood to have meaning.

Your relatives you have no choice about, but you do have a choice in what you decide to read. I am thankful for you reading this and your continuing support of me.
