|Three months and that is all I got done!|
|The color is truest in this picture. It was cloudy out this morning (shocking, I know, for Germany!) and so I turned on a lamp in the other two pictures below.|
|I had her try it on because it looks so tiny, but it seems to be just about right. I will knit a few more inches and have her try it again to be sure.|
As I was knitting this morning, before everyone was up, I was thinking about how this is kind of like life. I would love to live this exquisitely beautiful life, living our faith to the fullest and instilling in my children that love of Christ and the Catholic faith as well. But the reality is, I am not capable. When I try to fit it all in (what I perceive to be the things that will make us a better, holier family), all I end up with is no progress and much frustration. I can still make a beautiful life, but it must be a more simple one, one that fits our little family and helps us on our path to Heaven. It just is not what I pictured in the beginning, but it is still good. I just pray that it is good enough, because it is all I can do at this time.
I am reading "Till We Have Faces" by C S Lewis.
