I woke up hopeful this morning. Off and on I still am.
In my off moments I am struggling with the thoughts of… how can it be that I am so different from the rest of the country? I guess I am not the only one, because in my world, in my reality I am surrounded by people that think and act like me. That is how life works – we surround ourselves with people like us, and then think that the rest of the world is made up of people that think like “we” do. It isn’t, and I am sad about that.
I just don’t understand why other people wouldn’t want what to live in my world. You see, in my world people respect each other’s religious beliefs, love is equal – regardless of the sex of the partners, people help support those that don’t have the resources to help themselves, and there is a belief that the earth is a precious resource that deserves our protection.
I am also very heartsick that we can spend an enormous amount of money in these elections, and yet we allow so many people to go without food, clothing, shelter – the basic things of life. How can this be?
I know that I am only in charge of myself – I can influence others, but the bottom-line is that “it it is meant to be, it is up to me”.
On that note, here is a pic of the hats I have finished.
After I finish here I need to scoot around and get things ready for my day with Kerry and Renee. I am bringing hot artichoke dip, and Hot Southern Nuts. I want to head over to the Cost Plus World Market to pick up some fizzy juice and some good imported chocolate.
I will be bringing my spinning, but I also I plan on spending more time today knitting hats. I am hoping that my friends can help cheer me up. Perhaps not, but at least we can try.
I wish I had more hands, and more time. I guess I just have to be grateful for the fact that I can do something, and get about doing it.
