We hear these words on a daily basis, they are part of our chatter with each other. In my personal day to day life I am all these words and more. I wonder though if we are more thankful for whatever, when we have been without or when we have had the something and then had it taken away? This week my sweet daughter lost her cat due to leukemia. It was heartbreaking to say the least watching her suffer this loss. I too have lost pets,friends and a child. The pain is like no other. Jennifer related to me that if God truly loved her He would not have taken Luna from her. I wanted to say so many things to her, to assure her that that wasn't the case at all. But, I remember how during these times no words can help the crushing hurt of loss. I think that we truly learn thankfulness,gratitude,happiness,contentedness,peace when we go through pain and then come out on the other side in the sunlight. Im not saying that we don't appreciate things we have but Im saying that I believe true thankfulness comes through pain, and then healing. We all live in a world that was wrought through pain, suffering and healing. As we age the joys of life seem to get further apart but are sweeter than ever. I want you all to know that when I see you and you share your joys and successes or your sadness, and disappointments I know that I have indeed been blessed with the opportunity of Yarn on Youree. I pray your life will be filled with thankfulness, and the gift of healing, more love than you can imagine, and the opportunity to give to others in their time of need. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

I am just a simple knitter who is living the dream of running a yarn store, where beautiful yarn is turned into wonderful products and friendships are knit together just as wonderfully! I hope to just share my joy of fiber arts and the joy of sharing with you, as well. Enjoy!
