Michelle looked the best she has since the accident. Still, yes, and all that, but, I can’t tell you how hopeful and helpful it felt to see her today.

And then I was off to Stanford.

You know you knit a lot when you see someone in scrubs with a stethoscope and name tag and for a millisecond your brain assumes those are just covering up the first two letters before the r and the n. And then you guffaw silently at yourself and think yeah right, tell me another yarn.

I eventually got told I needed my Purlescence time so, twist my arm, off I dutifully went. Got there quite late and there was a good crowd for the evening: Juanita threw her arms around me as I walked in and I quite squealed in delight at seeing her, afraid she’d already moved away but no, there she was, saying, I told you I’d see you again! Kevin had his portable piano, songbooks had been passed around,  people were singing carols, smiles around the room at the happy greetings.

And then there were secular songs. Then silly songs, with a few more sacred ones thrown in near the end. Juanita sang a solo and it was amazing to hear. The city of Paris recently did and they want her back, so, back she’s going for awhile.

Good friends giving their best to all. And to all a good night. Made all the difference, and I am so grateful.

Oh, I’m so glad Michelle is looking better. If Mom thinks so, it must be true. And good that you got to go to Purlescence; sounds like that was a very good evening indeed.

So nice to read you got to enjoy such a lovely evening at your LYS. It’s wonderful you live a part of the world with access to such excellent medical care (I know I’ve said this before) but I truly hope your family doesn’t require as much of it next year! Hope you and yours enjoy a peaceful and healthy holiday next week!

I’m catching up after a few days behind and just want to leave best wishes for Michelle’s recovery. So glad to hear she is mending.

Peace and love to all of you – what a full plate the last few days have seemed. Solstice tomorrow – the light returns!
