A quiet moment

I am sitting here, quietly counting my blessings.
The strike ended this morning at 8 am. I called the hospital at 9 am and I am scheduled for Monday like originally planned. The strike was off in the very last minute for me.

The radio is off - no need to follow every news update, for the first time since Wednesday last week.
I am winding down with a cup of coffee and a thread of stitchery.
I sew when I am happy, I sew when I am stressed and I sew when I am tired, like now - I sew, therefore I am :-)
I will sew a stitch for every supportive friend I have today, around the world, online and offline. Consider yourself stitched my friends, and give yourself a hug from me.

How wonderful Hanne! Prayers and good thoughts from me will accompany you on Monday. How long is the surgery expected to last and how long do you expect to stay in the hospital?

The stitchery project is very cute.
