Real life often gets in the way of the things we “think” important, doesn’t it? IN the end, of course, the only truly important “things” are the ones you love: family, friends, pets.
After all, you aren’t likely to regret not working more hours as you draw your final breath. But you could regret not spending more time with your loved ones.
My family is definitely in the midst of one of life’s not so little curves right now, with a HUGE reminder of what truly matters. Last month, my mom started the journey of being diagnosed with cancer. We’re still in the early journey phase, and don’t really know yet what this means for Mom and for us as a family. We at least now know what the short term future holds for treatment, but there are more doctors and more tests before starting that phase.
This changes my own life, of course, both short and long term. I’m reprioritizing shorter term Phydeaux projects, which means delaying big projects like my book, which I’m sure you understand.
In the meantime, expect to see some knitting and crochet patterns for hats soon, since Mom’s going to need super soft and pretty caps and hats.
Thanks for your understanding and continued support. And if you have some knit cap/hat pattern suggestions for Mom, let me know?
