The stuff that matters

Last Friday a childhood friend was diagnosed with a form of Leukemia.  She’s 32, has a 6 month old and a 2-year-old, she is a physical therapist and has a fabulous husband.  She is being treated aggressively already and the leukemia is treatable; but life changing and earth shattering all the same.  This news made me think about what’s important.  For a moment I thought I really can’t write about crafting and cooking right now.  But then I quickly changed my mind.  To me the creativity involved in crafting, planning, cooking and playing with my children is what fuels me!  And I think of my friend’s love of knitting and being creative herself and I know exactly what I need to send her way to power through her upcoming treatments.  Life is precious.  And usually too short.  Take a moment to notice the things that truly matter.  I was surprised at how “everyday” the things that matter to me are.
