This is from my Mom's knitting Page-a-Day calendar:
"Monday, october 12, 2009
Today is Thanksgiving in Canada, and since that's where I live, this is the day I count my blessings. I start with yarn. It's not just that I am grateful for the beautiful stuff, it's that its presence in my house signifies an enormous wealth. It means that I don't struggle for food or shelter. As long as I can choose to buy yarn (even a little) and as long as I have a place to keep it (no matter how small) I am wealthier than almost everyone else in the world."
I am indeed richly blessed!
