Resistance was futile.

You know those silly questionnaires and quizzes folks have on their blogs that are supposed to reveal something about them? They are called memes. I generally avoid them but this was fun - and spoke to my creative side. My thanks to Javajem (I saw hers first).

It was very interesting to see the pictures that came up for my words and very difficult to chose the perfect picture. At first I thought I would just take the first one. Then so many cool pictures came up. What's a girl to do?

I mostly went for comedy.

A Sad Day

Earlier today I started a blog entry about how excited I was to announce I had been off of steroids for a week and felt it safe to put it in writing. I also asked for continued prayers for the child of my friend. Brie and her Mom had been living at The Johns Hopkins Children's Center for more than 2 months, seeking a miracle for her Severe Aplastic Anemia. I decided to put the only picture I had of her always smiling face here. I was cropping it a bit when our electricity went out and was still out when I arrived at my usual Thursday night Sit-n-Knit at Mr.Mikes. My knitting friend's faces said it all.

Brie was a sweet girl. This picture
is from 2 years ago at a K1P2 Yarn Swap - she got my yarn and I got hers.

Thank You God for lending her to us.
